2008 Saturn VUE

The 2008 Saturn VUE features a fresh design, borrowed from GM's European counterpart, Opel, as well as a wide range of engine choices and trim packages. The compact VUE SUV is also available in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions.

The base VUE is a front-wheel-drive vehicle with an inline 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 164 horsepower, an increase of 20 horsepower over the previous year's four-cylinder engine. The four-cylinder is dropped into the entry-level XE trim package.

The XE trim package also is available in an all-wheel-drive model with a 3.5-liter, 222-horsepower V6 engine.

Stepping up a notch, the XR trim package is available as either a front-wheel-drive or all-wheel drive model, with a 3.6-liter, 245-horsepower V6 engine and a six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission.

At the top of the line is the Red Line trim package, in front-wheel or all-wheel-drive, with a sportier design package and a 3.6-liter, 245-horsepower V6 engine.

Standard features throughout the Saturn VUE lineup include four-wheel anti-lock brakes, dual-stage front airbags, and a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system with a CD player and an MP3 input jack.

Other features include rack-and-pinion steering, traction control, a keyless entry system, cruise control, and daytime running lights.
