For some, it might beg the question, "you're joking, right?" But according to Edmunds' Inside Line, General Motors is planning to roll out a minivan for the 2009 model year and, well, nobody's laughing. The Lambda-based sibling of the next-generation Chevrolet Uplander seeks to fill the gap between the young, affluent couples and empty nesters the GMC Acadia is expected to appeal to -- namely families. As it hits the market, GM will take the Saturn Relay, Pontiac Montana and Buick Terraza off the lots, leaving the truck manufacturer as the only brand in the GMC-Pontiac-Buick triumvirate with a minivan.

No word yet on when the HUMMER-badged Uplander will hit the streets.
