Saab's new SUV brings seats for five, two powertrain choices and standard AWD traction. Foundation is the GM truck-based platform that underpins Chevrolet's TrailBlazer and GMC's Envoy wagons, although Saab applies signature design traits and premium appointments in the cabin.

A smooth aerodynamic package projects Saab's familiar three-port grille up front on a shapely hood followed by a big cabin that ends with windows wrapping around rear roof pillars. Inside, the plush compartment carries bucket seats in front of a bench for three that splits and folds, and a generous cargo bay in back.

Standard powertrain is a 4.2-liter V6 which delivers 290 hp with a four-speed automatic transmission. 9-7x V8 brings a 5.3-liter V8 spiked to 300 hp. The V8 employs GM's Displacement on Demand (DOD) technology to conserve fuel. An electronic stability control (ESC) device is standard, and options include a moonroof and DVD entertainment system.
