2004 Saturn VUE

The 2004 Saturn VUE SUV made several improvements to form and function from the previous year.  First, Saturn upgraded the V6 trims from the 181 hp, 3.0 L to a more powerful 250 hp, 3.5 L.  In addition, the VUE introduced the Red Line version with improved steering, handling, suspension, and a more monochromatic exterior.  Saturn has continued to use corrosion and dent-resistant polymer in building a safe and durable body for its product.

Otherwise, the 2004 Saturn VUE SUV keeps things simple for budget-conscious consumers.  Fuel consumption for all models remains around 20 mpg city/28 mpg highway.  The VUE seats 5 and its interior leaves plenty of room to spare.  Options include power sunroof, an Onstar telecom system, and XM satellite radio.

Overall, the 2004 Saturn VUE SUV represented a landmark moment where the consumer spoke and the company listened.  Saturn added power and finesse to a strong foundation.  In addition, the 2004 VUE reduced the engine noise that detracted from its predecessors.  As a result, the 2004 Saturn VUE SUV has set a high standard as it broadens its appeal to a diverse market.
