Giant 2007 range

Hi all,
Have been doing a bit of looking into the Giant 2007 range, and since i'm not up on the components of bikes really, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me where the new Giant bikes will be better in their 07 range. Not after a bike in a hurry, so i dont mind waiting 2 or 3 months until the new bikes hit Australia.
I was looking at the Yukon or Alias in the current range, but it seems that the Alias is gone from the 07 lineup. Can anyone confirm if this is accurate? from the sites I have seen, none mention the 07 alias. The Yukon is there, but I want to try and find out what the main differences are between the 06 and 07 models and what benefit they will be.
Thanks

Schmo

Umm, having just looked at Giant's webpage for the US and Australia, there are no signs of 2007 models. Check back there at around Late August to early October.

Wouldn't be suprised though if the spec/models of them varied significantly overseas though. I'm just guessing the new XtC "SE" could have replaced the Alias.

Actually UK differ to other countries. This year in the UK, they had the XtC SE, LX, SX, EX. Most countries have different types of names for their XtC series for example. UK- XtC SE, LX, SX, EX etc.
AUS- XtC 3, 2, 1, Zero etc.
