Fun with GM's Product Release Cycle: The GMC Acadia Breaks Cover


We love the randomness that is GM's product release cycle. Although we know, thanks to the Freep, GM is pushing up the rollout of new vehicles, what made the PR folks over at the Ren Cen say "Hey, let's drop this one on Wednesday, July 12th — how does that sound guys?" (Anything to take their minds off the pending meeting between Wagoner and Ghosn — though we doubt it'll have any effect on press coverage.) Nonetheless, the GMC Acadia that bubbled up this PM is the latest in the line of Lambda-platform crossovers that started with the Saturn Outlook and won't end until every division save Pontiac and Hummer (and Saab?) are accounted for. The full press release is coming, but in the meantime, check out the interior after the jump.

Not bad, though we'll reserve our impressions until we perform the Jalopnik Knock Test(TM). That's when we knock on the dashboard and listen to see if it sounds like a rock thrown into the Grand Canyon. [Hat tip to Zerin]
