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.
