These are the first pictures of the newest Suzuki SUV - a crossover ute larger than the Grand Vitara and the outgoing XL-7.
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.
