2007 GMC Acadia

General Motors' big crossover, a first for GMC, has a lot going for it.

Power: 3.6-liter V6, 275 horsepower, 6-speed transmission

From the outside, it looks like a GMC SUV. Yes, it's a bit more rounded than you'd expect from an big truck. Its sides slope inward, giving it a stable, almost sporty stance.

From the driver's seat, the difference is more remarkable. The Acadia doesn't feel its size. The benefit of so-called unibody engineering, which doesn't involve the heavy frame typical of a pickup truck, is that a vehicle can ride more smoothly, get better fuel economy and handle better.

The Acadia's no sports car, but the power from its 3.6-liter V6 engine is more than adequate. In turns, it feels stable and predictable with good steering feel. Despite being big enough to get the "oversized" surcharge from a parking garage, the Acadia really does feel more like a car than a large SUV.
