Overview

The powerplant in the Outlook is a direct-injected 3.6-liter V6 with 281 hp in the single-exhaust XE model and 288 hp in the dual-exhaust XR, similar to the power output of V8 engines. Fuel economy, though, stays within the realm of V6 engines, at a combined 19 mpg for both the all-wheel- and front-wheel-drive versions. High pressure fuel injectors and a new engine mount system reduce engine noise for a quieter ride.

The plug-in concept promises fewer trips to the gas station while producing fewer vehicle emissions and an electric-only driving range of 34 miles. The Saturn-Opel partnership has already resulted in several U.S. and European production models like the Saturn Aura, Sky, Vue and Astra, and the Opel GT, Antara and Astra. The Flextreme concept debuted first as an Opel at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show.

Saturn added a Green Line hybrid for the 2007 model year. That model used an electric motor/generator coupled with GM's Ecotec 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine for a total output of 170 hp and 162 lb.-ft. of torque. The result was a 20-percent increase in fuel economy versus the 2.4-liter engine without the hybrid system. The Vue was redesigned for the 2008 model year, losing the traditional Saturn plastic body panels in the process. A Saturn Vue Green Line returned to the lineup with the same 2.4-liter engine and motor/generator. For 2009, Saturn will add a second hybrid to the Vue lineup, the Vue Green Line 2 Mode.
