2004 VUE 3.5L
Default 08 Saturn Vue Red Line & Green Line

http://www.autoblog.com/2007/02/04/c...nd-green-line/


It turns out that the Astra isn't the only thing GM's Saturn division has up its sleeve for this week's big Windy City show. Visitors to McCormick Place will also get their first eyefuls of the 2008 Vue's performance and hybrid variants.

The '08 Vue Red Line (above) gets a nomenclature update (previously, Saturn used the single-word "Redline" moniker) and a "performance-inspired" new look that's bound to have people talking (that may not necessarily be a good thing). The Red Line's front end is dominated by an enormous air opening below the front bumper, which is bookended by big secondary cutouts that house projector-beam foglights. The center cutout is so large, you'd expect to see an intercooler hiding behind it. Don't look for any forced induction here, though. The Vue Red line has the same powertrain as the Vue XR: GM's 250-horsepower 3.6L VVT V6 matched with a six-speed automatic with a manual-shift mode. Buyers can order it with either FWD or AWD.

I like the look of the redline alot. I just don't think it is going to have any performance backing it up with that awful horsepower/weight ratio.

I actually think the redline looks better than whats on the market now, it for sure looks a heck of a lot better than a RAV4, CR-V, Tuscon, or Torrent.

Goooo SATURN!

ALSO! in the redline picture, does it have Projector (polyellipsoidal) head lights? I like them much more than the Reflector headlights on the XE and XR 08 Vue.

Default Re: 2008 VUE Red Line and Green Line Info and Photos

Meh I am not a fan of the new bodystyle at all. I think the non-RL looks better than the RL as well.

I have to disagree I think the Rav 4 is far more appealing as far as aesthetics go opposed to the new Vues.

I personally don't like it. Like someone said earlier, it looks like a bloated Toyota Matrix.

Though some people have said they don't like it, I actually like the body style of Honda's CR-V ... at the very least it is an improvement over the old version.

Question Re: 2008 VUE Red Line and Green Line Info and Photos

Anyone have an idea for the price range of an 08 Vue Redline ? I am hoping to get one for around 26k... is this realistic?

Else I'll get a 08 Vue RX and just live without the sport tuned version.

...
08 Mazda 6 ? 08 Vue Hybrid ?

Called two saturn dealerships. Both dont have pricing on the 08 vue. This vehicle comes out in a few weeks and they didnt even know. They didnt even know when they were getting them. One said august. Another said September. This is a joke.

Good clean aggressive look for the Red Line. Though I prefer the XR. Note this new Vue will have a wider stance and a more upgraded look than the competition including the expensive imports. It will be a winner with its improved attributes, powertrains, handling characteristics, performance, and what is sure to be a competitive price.
