2009 Vue XR 2.4L 4-Cylinder Coming Soon

Alert Saturn fans noticed an unannounced change late last week in a GM online reference guide that indicates a new 4-cylinder version of the popular front-wheel-drive (FWD) Vue XR is about to be released. Not much more information is known at this time, as there is only one note stating the new-for-2009 availability of a "FWD 4-Cylinder XR model ZLV26." It looks like its only a matter of when, not if, it will arrive.

Content wise, expect the new Vue XR 4-cylinder model to be equipped similarly to the current V6 XR model, but feature the same 169 horsepower "LE5" 2.4L engine that's installed in the Vue XE FWD. The 4-cylinder Vue XE gets an EPA estimated 19/26 MPG in city/highway. Earlier this year Saturn released a 4-cylinder version of the Aura XR, and with gas prices hovering above $3.50 a gallon in most parts of the country, it makes sense for Saturn to offer a more fuel efficient version of the uplevel Vue. Stay tuned to SaturnFans.com for more information when it becomes available.
