UPDATE - AWD pricing added. Scroll for details.

The price of entry for the eight-passenger 2007 GMC Acadia is $29,990.

That sum gets you a front-wheel-drive model with the new 3.6L V6 tuned to pump out 275 horsepower, plus standard features including StabiliTrak, ABS, Airbags all around, AM/FM/CD with MP3 capability, the latest, greatest version of OnStar, dual exhaust with a pair of double-barrel tips, 18" rims, and a roof spoiler. Load it up all the way and you' should see that bottom line fly well into the $30Ks.

You also get GM's spiffy 5yr/100K mile powertrain warranty. Sadly, none of the available optional equipment enables the Acadia to fly like the GM cars in the new TV spots, so you'll have to sit in traffic like the rest of us. At least the GM-nouveau interior gives you a nice place to sit.

UPDATE: Our buddy Dave over at Kicking Tires has posted the base price for the AWD model, which comes in at $31,990. Dave also notes that the announced pricing for both the FWD and AWD models includes a $735 destination charge.

      To posting # 40

      Thanks Cathy. You took the time to do the research and found out GM is doing a lot of good things. It's guys like Brian # 39 and Paul # 36 that just "throw mud" without doing what you did.

      Uplander anyone or is it just me..oh well it won't sell.
      • 8 Years Ago
      Seems gas is too cheap in the US. Its European sibling, The Opel Antara ist expected to be sold with a new 2.0l Diesel developped by VM that makes 150hp in 90% of the cars. And if that is not enough (yours seems to be longer) there is a compact V6 Diesel waiting.

      But GM seems to see no need for Diesel SUV, so you Americans can continue to drain the worlds oil resources.
      • 8 Years Ago
      The Acadia and its sibs, which are unrelated to and much larger than the Opel Antara, will sell much better than the Uplander.

      Base prices don't tell you a whole lot. As soon as I find a complete price list I'll get it into my database, so we can see how the Acadia's price really stacks up.

      $30,000 of your hard-earned cash for this POS?

      ...all for the "pleasure" of owning a GM truck?

      ...one that keeps on taking to the tune of several thousand dollars in repair bills?

      No thank you, GM! Why...you just need to build some "relevant" products, not YET ANOTHER SUV!!!

      You know, GM...you're a real assh@le.

      The nose of an Uplander and the rear of a Sequoia. Doh! $30 is too high for this block of metal. Rebate rebate!

      "13. You guys can keep your old dirty diesels. After spending a week in Paris I blew my nose and it came out black - no lie. The soot from those nasty diesels was everywhere. Very gross."

      -Amen to that!!! After being in Amsterdam I had the WORST headaches of my life from the diesels. Plus it makes all the buildings look drabby. Diesel is NASSTY shit. And the engines themselves just sound "3rd world"

      @3: 80µg NOx should not be a big deal: GM buys the new I4 (and soon I'll expect V6) Diesels at DCs subsidaries VM and Detroit Diesel. So also ordering Bluetec urea injection would be a logical thing. Since your Diesel fuel just changed to EU standard, besides some states not allowing urea systems as too maintenance intensive there is no cause not to sell small and medium Diesels.

      Besides that: "dirty" is relative: the European Union sees not so many problems from NOx than it sees caused by CO2. For example recent studies show that NOx causes much less ground-near ozone than thaught years ago. Thus the NOx emissions allowed are about thrice as high as in California.

      M, as I'm sure you are aware, the US is currently changing it's desiel emmissions standards. Current desiels are so dirty and states with CARB standards are such a big part of the market that very few desiels are sold here.

      Wait, until the fuel changes and companys have engines that meet the new standards.

      Also, M, a 3.6 is a big step DOWN in the US. Not a huge step, but the engine size is going in the right direction. A couple of years ago, this would have been a 5.0

      It looks just like a Buick Enclave. When will GM realize that selling 90% identical cars under different brands is not a viable business model. If this is how GM is attempting to turn itself around, I think I'll short their stock.

      Hey, I thought this site was for auto talk. Not bashing GM evey chance you get. Hey, GM isn't perfect. Some of you think foriegn manufactures are. Well, there not. One good example is Toyota. They produced about 9.2 M cars last year. Only recalled 2.2 M. Not bad for a perfect company. While I an stating facts. J.D.Powers initial quality. Lexus # 1 Buick #2 Cadi #3 Toyota#4. How can that beeee.
