Suzuki XL7

 

These are the first pictures of the newest Suzuki XL7 a crossover ute larger than the Grand Vitara and the outgoing XL7, due at the New York show. Due in the 2007 model year, the new ute will offer three rows of seating and a V-6 engine, likely a version of the 3.4-liter V-6 that powers the other SUVs based on the same Theta architecture - the Pontiac Torrent and Chevy Equinox. Although close to the Chevrolet and Pontiac variants, the Suzuki seems to be a bit longer, making it the largest SUV that Suzuki has to offer. Also, notice the upgraded interior in these pictures, including a touch of wood trim. Production will be at the CAMI plant in Ontario, alongside the Equinox and Torrent. The still-unnamed Suzuki will be in dealerships sometime next fall.
