GMC Acadia News **C&D Test (page 5)**

GM dealers excited about upcoming crossover utes; GMC version to be called Acadia - - JAMIE LAREAU | Automotive News - - Source: Autoweek

LAS VEGAS -- General Motors revealed the names of two of the three crossovers it will launch for the 2007 and 2008 model years at its Dealer Business Conference here last week.

The GMC crossover vehicle will be called the Acadia, dealers say. The name was confirmed by a GM source.

A concept version of the Acadia will debut at the Detroit auto show in January. Dealers will receive the Acadia as a 2008 model after they get the new GMC Sierra pickup next fall.

...

The Acadia will be bigger than the mid-sized GMC Envoy and will come in front-wheel- and all-wheel-drive versions.

The vehicle will seat eight people, dealers say.

Dealers praised the crossovers' styling.

...

The crossovers will be built on GM's Lambda architecture at the Delta Township plant near Lansing, Mich., which starts production next year. GM uses the term "architecture" to signify a common set of components, performance characteristics, a common manufacturing process, a range of dimensions and connecting points for key component systems.

Give Buick and Saturn the Lambdas. Atleast that way GM doesn't fall into it's own trap of having another pair of triplets, as it loves to do. Also, with GM reconfiguring it's dealers into GMC/Pontiac/Buick, you have the situation of two of the same vehicle with different badges on the same floor... I just think it's overkill.

Sneak Peek: 2007 GMC Acadia

GMC's first large crossover vehicle, the all-new 2007 Acadia, will be one of the first products at General Motors Corp. to be built on the company's new Lambda platform, which also will underpin the new Buick Enclave and Saturn Outlook. The '07 Acadia will be introduced, along with the Outlook, in late 2006, with the Enclave to follow in spring 2007.

So far, only the Enclave has been previewed to the public. The Acadia and its companions will seat up to eight. The new crossover has a bit of a boxy profile, but differs from traditional minivans in several respects, most notably in that it has hinged, rather than sliding rear doors. GM has not announced what engines will power the Acadia and its siblings, but executives say the Lambda platform can accommodate V-6 and V-8 powerplants.

Well, it'll certainly look like a GMC. I really like the looks of the center stack; very impressive.

Spy Shots: 2008 GMC Acadia - - by KGP Photography - - Source: The Car Connection

An unshrouded prototype for the upcoming GMC Acadia crossover has finally broken cover, giving us our first comprehensive look at the this Lambda-based cousin to the Saturn Outlook.


Until now, every Acadia prototype we had seen was fully covered in the usual heavy camouflage padding-and frankly we were getting tired of it. There is still some left-over eye-tricking tape on the headlights and tail- lights, but not enough to keep us from seeing the Acadia's true styling direction. The resemblance to the Outlook is obvious, but the Acadia gets a completely new front fascia, with a small mesh grille surrounding the GMC badge, and interesting headlights that droop down to bumper level and angle their way up around the fenders. The front bumper gets three small intakes in an odd, but pleasing configuration.


Most of the body-side looks nearly identical to Saturn variant, but the GMC gets a completely different D-pillar design-a body-colored pillar instead of the Outlook's wrap-around rear and side glass. The differences continue around the back, as the Acadia gets different taillights, with more detailed internal "jewelry" with a chrome bezel design that looks more like an aftermarket product than the Saturn Outlook's simple red rear lamps. A new rear bumper completes the external differentiation between the Saturn and GMC versions.


Past photos have also revealed an interior design that is completely unique to its Saturn platform-mate, showing that GM is trying to tone down any whiff of badge-engineering. On that, hey haven't succeeded entirely as the general look of these two crossovers is quite similar. But the GMC's new face and tweaked rear-end details are pleasing nonetheless. As more people look to unibody alternatives like the Ford Edge and these handsome offerings from GM, the days of the GMC Envoy seem about to run out.-KGP Photography

It's okay. IMO, GMC shouldn't have gotten this. Lambda's suvs should have been limited to the very nice Outlook, and the dropdead goregeous Enclave.

Looks like it will have the 6 speed...sweet. I may actually start looking at a GM SUV in the next 2 years. Has GM ever given the SS treatment to a non-chevy?

I don't think so. But you can expect to see a Denali version of the Acadia; probably sharing the new V8 rumored to go into the uplevel Enclave.

2007 GMC Acadia

ALL-NEW 2007 GMC ACADIA RAISES THE BAR IN THE CROSSOVER SEGMENT

The all-new 2007 Acadia is GMC’s first crossover, bringing a smooth, responsive driving experience, athletic design, a spacious interior and a comprehensive safety package to the fastest-growing vehicle segment in the United States.

“Acadia is a natural extension of the GMC brand,” said John Larson, Pontiac-GMC general manager. “Its combination of smooth, responsive driving traits and SUV versatility embody GMC’s professional grade philosophy. Acadia is a great looking vehicle that will attract customers who’ve never visited a GMC showroom.”

The smooth ride and agile handling come from a four-wheel independent suspension system mounted to a rigid body-frame integral (BFI) structure. The structure enables a lower center of gravity, while the independent front and rear suspensions, combined with a precise rack-and-pinion steering system, provide sharp and immediate response to driver input.

Acadia’s agility is complemented by responsive performance from a 3.6L V-6 VVT – a high-feature engine with variable valve timing that is designed for good fuel economy, low emissions and exceptional smoothness. It is rated at 267 horsepower (199 kW) and 247 lb.-ft. of torque (335 Nm).* The engine is backed by a new, fuel-saving Hydra-Matic 6T75 six-speed automatic transmission. Acadia is available in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models.

Acadia offers seven- or eight-passenger seating configurations. All three rows comfortably seat adults while simultaneously allowing generous cargo space behind the third-row seats. Third-row entry and egress are eased with very wide rear doors and GM’s exclusive Smart Slide second-row seat. The BFI structure also enables a lower entry/exit height for passengers, which makes entry, exit and cargo placement easier. Despite the vehicle’s SUV-like front-end height, the front door step-in height is only 18.9 inches (480 mm); the rear door step-in height is 19.8 inches (503 mm).

Smooth ride and responsive handling
Acadia is built on a body-frame integral (BFI) structure that is reinforced with high-strength steel. It rides on a long 118.9-inch (3,021 mm) wheelbase, with wide 67.3-inch (1,709 mm) front/rear tracks – a combination that lowers the center of gravity and enables agile, stable ride and handling.

Acadia’s driving reflexes are supported by independent front and rear suspensions. The front suspension features a MacPherson strut design, with a direct-acting stabilizer bar and aluminum steering knuckles. Isolated mounting points help reduce noise and vibration. The rear suspension uses a compact, state-of-the-art linked “H” design, which has an isolated mounting system that reduces noise and vibration transmitted to the passenger compartment. This design enables the handling prowess that comes with an independent suspension, but with minimal floor pan intrusion – a feature that helps the Acadia offer generous passenger and cargo space.

Acadia features standard power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, with variable-effort steering available. StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with rollover mitigation technology and traction control is standard on all models.

The available, intelligent all-wheel drive system provides increased traction on slippery roads and other driving situations – such as freeway ramps – where increased traction would enhance handling. The system works by always delivering a controlled amount of torque to the rear wheels. There is no driver intervention; the system automatically decides how much torque to apply and delivers it to the wheels with the best traction.

Efficient powertrain
GM’s 3.6L V-6 with variable valve timing (VVT) and a new Hydra-Matic 6T75 six-speed automatic transmission is the Acadia’s standard powertrain combination. The engine’s four-cam phasing operation of the variable valve timing system ensures linear delivery of torque across the rpm band, while features such as electronic throttle control deliver crisp, immediate response and feedback. The engine uses electro-hydraulic vane-type phasers, allowing infinitely variable combinations to optimize performance and efficiency.

A new Hydra-Matic 6T75 electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission backs the 3.6L V-6 VVT. It is an advanced transmission with clutch-to-clutch shift operation for front- and all-wheel-drive vehicles. Clutch-to-clutch operation allows for reduced complexity and compact packaging. A wide, 6.04:1 overall ratio helps the transmission deliver both performance and fuel economy, enabling up to 8 percent improved performance and up to 4 percent improved fuel economy when compared with current front-wheel drive four-speed automatics.

Fuel economy for FWD models is estimated at 17 mpg in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway; AWD models are estimated at 17 and 24 mpg. Acadia can tow up to 4,500 pounds (2,041 kg), when properly equipped.

Athletic design
The Acadia features athletic styling that underscores GMC’s professional grade philosophy. The design is highlighted by polished aluminum roof rails, select bright work and large, prominent headlamps that flank a detailed GMC grille. The headlamps use projector beam technology to deliver bright, precise lighting and are mounted in houses that have a crystal-clear appearance. High-intensity discharge lamps (HID) are available.

The profile of the Acadia is sleek and aerodynamic, with a sporty, tapered roof line. Distinctive LED taillamps and a rear spoiler enhance the vehicle’s sporty appearance, as do large 18-inch wheels and tires (19-inch wheels are available). Acadia has a coefficient of drag of just 0.361 – which reduces wind noise and enhances fuel economy.

Acadia is available in nine exterior colors: Summit White, Gold Mist Metallic, Liquid Silver Metallic, Red Jewel Tint, Deep Blue Metallic, White Diamond Tricoat, Blue-Gold Crystal Metallic, Carbon Metallic and Medium Brown Metallic.

Spacious, refined interior
Acadia’s interior reflects style and refinement.. The instrument panel design enhances the feeling of openness in the front-row seats and provides a commanding outward view. The instrument panel and other interior elements feature high-quality, low-gloss materials and attention to fit, finish and flushness. Additional professional grade features include thick door glass, flat-blade windshield wipers and strategically placed sound deadening material, which minimizes road and wind noise.

The versatile interior includes three rows of seating and can be configured for seven or eight passengers. The front row includes two bucket seats and the standard third row features a 60/40-split bench seat that accommodates three passengers. The second row is available with either a 60/40-split bench (three passengers) design or two captain’s chairs (two passengers). Leather seats also are available.

Acadia’s wider rear doors make entry and egress easier, with the rear door width enabled by the vehicle’s long wheelbase. Engineers maximized the door opening by reducing the space between the rear door and leading edge of the door opening.

The Smart Slide feature is standard on all second-row configurations and also eases entry to and egress from the third row. With Smart Slide, the second-row seat cushion flips up while the seatback slides forward, effectively compressing the space occupied by the seat. It operates with the pull of one handle and also has adjustable fore/aft positioning of the second-row seat. When adjusted rearward, the second-row seat provides more legroom for taller passengers; when adjusted forward, it provides more storage space or additional legroom for third-row passengers.

Acadia also offers generous cargo room, including an estimated 117 cu. ft. (3,313 L) when the second- and third-row seats are folded. In fact, Acadia even offers an estimated 19.7 cu. ft. (557.9 L) of cargo space behind the third-row seat when in the upright position – capacity many other SUVs and crossovers cannot come close to matching. Also, Acadia’s second- and third-row seats fold flat for even more cargo-carrying capacity, and a covered rear cargo convenience center allows items to be stored out of sight beneath the rear cargo floor.

Rounding out the appeal of the Acadia is a wide range of useful optional and standard equipment, including heated outside mirrors, tri-zone heating and air conditioning system, intermittent rear wiper, ultrasonic parking assist, power liftgate, extended-range remote vehicle starting system, heated windshield washer fluid, an oversized dual SkyScape sunroof, DVD entertainment system, a DVD-based navigation system, Bose 5.1 Surround Sound Audio system and GMC-exclusive audio controls located in the cargo area. Acadia also offers an exclusive head-up display that projects instrument readouts and other features onto the windshield for easy, eyes-on-the-road reference.

Comprehensive safety system
The GMC Acadia has a comprehensive safety system designed to protect passengers before, during and after a crash. Its strong structure and four-wheel independent suspension system enhance safety by providing stable ride and handling characteristics. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes, StabiliTrak electronic stability control system – with rollover mitigation technology – and GM’s tire pressure monitoring system are standard.

Acadia is equipped with six standard air bags: two dual-stage frontal air bags, two seat-mounted side-impact air bags in the first row and two roof rail air bags that cover all three seating rows. Complementing the air bags is GM’s rollover sensing system, which will activate the roof rail air bags if sensors determine a rollover is occurring. Because rollovers are typically longer events than non-rollover crashes, the roof rail air bags stay inflated longer to provide increased occupant protection and containment. Additionally, first-row positions feature safety belt pretensioners, which activate at the moment of a crash to take up any slack in the safety belt and hold the passengers in place.

Acadia comes standard with OnStar Generation 7 (with a one-year Safe and Sound plan), which features the Advanced Automatic Crash Notification system. If the crash activates an air bag, the OnStar system automatically notifies an OnStar advisor, who immediately calls the vehicle and/or summons emergency help.

Acadia also is equipped with OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation, the first factory-installed, fully integrated GPS navigation system from OnStar. Turn-by-Turn allows consumers to talk to a live advisor, who in turn sends complete step-by-step directions to customers' vehicles through their OnStar system. These audio directions automatically play through the vehicle’s stereo as needed, triggered by the OnStar system’s GPS capabilities. This enables drivers to be led to their destination while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.

Accessories
Acadia owners can select from a variety of GM accessories available through GMC dealers to personalize their vehicle for style and convenience. Just a few of the accessories include two 19-inch wheel designs, a stylish front fascia extension, convenient side step bars and helpful, integrated roof rack cross rails. All Acadia accessories can be purchased through GMC dealerships. For more information about GM Parts, GM Accessories or GM Performance Parts, visit www.gmgoodwrench.com.

*Preliminary, pending SAE certification. A new voluntary power and torque certification procedure developed by the SAE Engine Test Code committee was approved March 31, 2005. This procedure (J2723) ensures fair, accurate ratings for horsepower and torque by allowing manufacturers to certify their engines through third-party witness testing. GM was the first auto manufacturer to begin using the procedure and expects to use it for all newly rated engines in the future.

I think it's a rather ugly cousin to the Buick. The interior is awesome, but the exterior is weak. It looks like something that'd come from the Japanese...very safe design.

I am more impressed by the interior than the exterior.

The interior's fantastic. Though I like the Enclave's richer, more traditional design, this works extremely well. I think that the color of the red leather adds flair. The exterior is good looking, though they could have worked a bit harder to make the rear more different from the Outlook. I'll say it again' this should have never been a GMC, sharing showroom floorspace with the Enclave. Chevy should have gotten this version as a bread and butter crossover. It's been rumored that they're gettin one anyway, but that's one to many, IMO.
