Default What was the last Saturn vehicle built?

I realize this may be a tricky question, but does anyone know what the last Saturn built was? Did it get put into a GM museum, or just sold to a random customer?

To clarify, I'm talking about the last vehicle built with a Saturn badge on it. I know some models (Like the Vue) just got rebadged and they just kept the line going - but that's not what I'm looking for.

I don't think any VUEs were a rebadged anything (?). So do they count? Unlike the Outlook, which was a rebadged GMC Acadia, which doesn't count? Or the Malibu which was a rebadged Aura that might count?

Default Re: What was the last Saturn vehicle built?

all 2010s were sold to rental companies except the 8 skys which went to gm execs then sold to lupient saturn minnesota.. all saturns had 2010s except no auras. large batch of outlooks built spring of 2010 for rentals so outlooks would be the last saturn built. 2010 vues built much earlier and skys were april 2009.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

At the end, the newly redesigned Saturn Vue was quickly rebadged as the Chevy Captiva, and 100% of them were sold to rental fleets. A number of them are in private hands now as the rental companies sold them as used cars. A friend of mine has one. It was *barely* changed at all.
