The first generation Suzuki XL-7 was sold from 2001 until
2006. It featured a 2.7 liter V6 engine making 185 horsepower. It was the cheapest 3 row SUV sold in the United States, which made it popular with America's perpetually less-descriminating taste. Over 20,000 of them in the first year. Despite the low price, the XL-7 did have some luxury features that were comparable to its competition from Honda and Toyota. Those companies would see the sales of the XL-7 and decided to add more features and better fuel economy to their SUVs in an effort to win back the "value buyer." The plan worked, and XL-7 sales would slip towards the end of the first generation.
The XL7 for 2007 was built in conjunction with General Motors, and the name was changed slightly as the hyphen was quietly dropped. The new XL7 features many of the same parts used in the Saturn VUE, Pontiac Torrent, and Chevrolet Equinox. The engine is now the far more powerful GM High Feature V6, which makes 252 horsepower, a huge improvement over the previous models. The rear wheel drive was dropped in favor of standard front wheel drive with all wheel drive optional. Unlike the previous XL-7, the XL7 is not made for offroad driving. This is aimed purely at the city driver market.
There are several places to look for a used Suzuki XL-7. First, check out the auction listings on eBay. Don't be scared away by the fact that it's an online auction with a faceless seller. You can always check the seller's history to see if they have experience with car deals. There are many parts listings on eBay as well.
