Outlook Proves Detroit Can Nail It

Mark Patinkin from the Providence Journal: I bought a Ford Expedition, which was too big. So I in 1999, I got a Dodge Durango, a slightly smaller 3-seat SUV. That carried me until two years ago, when, still needing three seats for baseball bags and packs of teens, I got another SUV, a Saturn Outlook. I discovered that Saturn had not worked out as a separate entity, and the Outlook was now being made in a regular GM factory alongside its GMC sibling, the Acadia. But to me, the Outlook proves Detroit can nail it. They gave it a car's body instead of a truck's. They thought this one through. But I do not know if they have made equal progress on more economical cars, which will likely be the industry's future, and my own.
