Review: Outlook Built on GM Lambda Architecture

2009 Saturn Outlook

G. Chambers Williams III from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: The Saturn Outlook offers seating for up to eight people, and GM believes that many consumers who might have considered buying a minivan in the past will choose these vehicles instead. Ours had the optional seven-passenger configuration, which includes two captain's chairs each in the first and second rows, and a three-person bench seat in the third row. Unlike most of the Outlook's competitors, there is ample room for three adults in the third row, and behind that seat there is nearly 20 cubic feet of cargo space – about the size of the trunk of a large sedan. In some crossovers with three rows, there's hardly room for a good grocery run in the cargo area. The Outlook is offered with a choice of two versions of GM's 3.6-liter V6 engine with variable valve timing, which the automaker says has been designed to deliver optimum fuel economy with low emissions and "exceptional smoothness."

Owner Story: Forever Grateful to the Engineers Who "Did One Heck of a Job" Making Saturns Safe
