GM has revealed some official shots of the upcoming 2007 GMC Acadia crossover SUV built on the same Lambda platform, which is already shared by the 2007 Saturn Outlook and the 2008 Buick Enclave.

Featuring a weight-saving unibody design, the 2007 GMC Acadia will be GMC’s only product without a full frame.

According to the American car manufacturer, the Acadia will be equipped with a 267 hp 3.6-liter V6 engine, which will be paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox that will, too, increase the vehicle’s fuel efficiency.

Offering an impressive wheelbase of almost 3021 mm (118.9 inches,) the full-size crossover may be ordered in either seven- or eight-passenger three-row configurations.

The plushy interior includes leather seats and soft to the touch plastic, as well as some chrome and aluminum-texture accents on the steering wheel and the dashboard.

The car seems to be equipped with a DVD-based navigation system with a huge LCD display and comes with a spacious glove compartment, as well as a number of cup holders and comfortable-looking seats with leather upholstery.

The list of options includes a DVD multimedia entertainment system for rear passengers, power rear liftgate (probably a must for such a huge car,) XM Satellite radio, heated power mirrors, memory seats, as well as a rear parking assist and an engine block heater.

Both traction and stability controls will come in a standard package, as well as antilock brakes and a tire-pressure monitor.

The crossover will be shipped in both front- and four-wheel drive trims.

The vehicle will run on standard 18-inch wheels and tires, but there will also be optional 19-inch aluminum rims, machined and mirror-polished.

GMC hopes that the Acadia will feature about 17 mpg fuel efficiency in the city cycle and around 25 mpg on the highway (24 mpg for a 4WD version.)
