Photos: 2007 GMC Acadia

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.

GMC taps the crossover segment with its Acadia, which is designed to offer the utility of an SUV and the comfort of a sedan.

Although a crossover, GMC keeps a lot of its SUV styling cues, such as the truck-like grille. The nose is stubby compared to a full-size SUV, though, as it only needs to accommodate a V-6.

With its large side windows and big wheel arches, the Acadia looks a lot like an SUV.

LED tail lights are a nice, modern touch. The dual exhaust pipes are probably less necessary, given the size of the engine.

We found the Acadia can easily hold large pieces of furniture. It also has a powered tailgate.

The mirrors can be folded in at the touch of a button, a nice feature for a big vehicle.

Three rows of seating isn't common in a crossover. But the middle-row captain's chairs mean seating is still limited to six.

We like the interior design, with its two-tone dashboard, a look that extends to the doors.

The navigation module has a convenient split-screen mode, so you can see audio information and the map at the same time.

The navigation system lets you choose from multiple routes to your destination.

We particularly like that you can add new destinations to your route either before or after previously entered destinations.

The Acadia's stereo plays MP3 and WMA CDs and offers a useful screen for selecting music.

The XM radio screen is also nicely laid out for choosing categories or individual stations.

Applying categories to FM radio stations is a particularly nice touch.

The auxiliary input is easily accessible right on the faceplate of the navigation/stereo module.

Optional cargo area audio controls make the Acadia good for tailgate parties.

The steering wheel gets a load of buttons between each spoke.

Although we felt its look is dated, the heads-up display on the Acadia is a very useful option.

The Acadia's six-speed automatic transmission is good for freeway speeds, but we found its shifts very noticeable.

Appropriate for a crossover, the Acadia uses a V-6 instead of a V-8. But, at 3.6-liters, this V-6 has fairly large displacement.
