KBB Reviews the 2009 Saturn Outlook

From Kelley Blue Book: The 2009 Saturn Outlook is part of a family of three-row crossover vehicles that include the Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia, and Chevrolet Traverse. For most families, the Outlook offers all the relevant capability of GM's three-row, truck-based SUVs, but with better ride and handling, easier entry and exit and better fuel economy. The Outlook and its GM brethren appear poised for unprecedented success in a category pioneered by the now-defunct Chrysler Pacifica and still competitive Ford Taurus X, not to mention the all-new Ford Edge. A revised 3.6-liter engine produces more power this year, while new features include standard leather seating on XR trims, an available 5.1 Bose Cabin Surround Sound Audio system and a new rear backup camera for vehicles not equipped with a navigation view screen.
