2007 GMC Acadia

The Good The interface for the 2007 GMC Acadia's navigation and entertainment is very usable. The car has a modern, variable valve timed engine and a six-speed transmission, while its independent suspension makes for a comfortable ride. The heads-up display is a neat gee-whiz feature.

The Bad The large size and weight of the Acadia hamper its drivability on city streets and bring down its fuel economy. Hands-free calling is only available through OnStar.

The Bottom Line Although it has some of the trappings of a crossover, the 2007 GMC Acadia feels a lot like an SUV. Its tech offerings are considerable, but it gets pricey when fully optioned up.

If the job of the new crossover segment being hyped by automakers is to wean people off of gas-guzzling SUVs, the 2007 GMC Acadia represents a small step, a nicotine patch for those people having a tougher time quitting their mammoth vehicles. The Acadia's 3.6-liter V-6 engine has the right amount of cylinders for a crossover, and the independent suspension delivers the right kind of ride. But with three rows of seating, a very large body, and two and a half tons of curb weight, the Acadia retains a lot of SUV characteristics.

The exterior of the Acadia also retains a lot of GMC SUV styling. It has a big, truck-like, chrome-wrapped grille complete with a large GMC logo. The side windows are big and rectangular, and there is an overlarge C-pillar separating the rear cargo area from the passenger cabin, a cue that hearkens back to the day when SUVs were just crew cab trucks with a shell over the bed. Prominent wheel arches bulge out of the sides as if they were a whole new set of fenders. Our test car, an all-wheel-drive Acadia at the SLT-2 trim level, came with big, 19-inch wheels.
