Alright, so it's just a bit of camouflage... but we're reasonably sure you can fit a five-necked guitar in GMC's upcoming Lambda-platform'd Acadia.

The photogs at KGP recently stumbled upon this tester, which reveals that the Acadia will look decidedly similar to the Saturn Outlook that debuted earlier this year at the Chicago Auto Show. That said, it looks as if the GMC will receive a more restrained front end treatment, and as The Car Connection points out, the side looks remarkably similar, save a more traditional d-pillar (the Saturn's is glassed-over). The rear appears to incorporate slightly more complex taillamps and a different bumper cap and exhaust, but from the spy shots, at least, critics are likely to suggest that it's hard to shake the notion that you're looking at a different vehicle. Ain't That a Shame. Regardless, those keeping The Flame alight among brand loyalists are unlikely to Walk Away, and should be rewarded with capable crossover with gobs of space and the promise of a smooth six-speed Hydra-Matic transmission.

(And yes... we're sorry about the whole Cheap Trick thing-- apparently we Can't Stop This Game)
