More Special Edition Saturns
April 11, 2002 Saturn will build three new special edition S-Series cars this spring. The Silver Blue SL Special, SL Sport, and SC2 Sport models represent Saturn's latest effort to repackage options in order to continue to generate interest in its S-Series lineup. Below is a look at what you can expect in the new cars. These models will only be offered with a 5-speed manual transmission. As always, please check with your retailer to verify pricing and exact equipment content.
Silver Blue SL Special
The big news about this SL is it's price: $9995. Air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo will be included as standard equipment. Free-flow addon options include head-curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a radio upgrade.
Want to make your new SL look like more like an SL2? Take a close look at the SL Sport. For $11,750, the SL Sport includes the following standard features: a rear decklid spoiler, alloy wheels, sunroof, SL2 interior, air conditioning, and an AM/FM CD-player. Free-flow options will include head-curtain airbags and anti-lock brakes. Interestingly, no factory radio upgrade will be offered.
Standard equipment on the SC2 Sport will include alloy wheels, AM/FM CD/Cassette stereo, leather interior, and a sunroof. Free-flow options will include head-curtain airbags and anti-lock brakes. MSRP for the SC2 Sport is $16,995.
At this time, it is not known how many of each model will be manufactured. The latest rumors indicate S-Series production will end before Spring Hill closes for GM's annual two-week shutdown in July. Saturn will begin production of the S-Series replacement, the 2003 ION, when workers return from vacation. The first cars off the line will still be pre-production vehicles for internal testing. The ION sedan isn't expected to go on sale until the fall. Incidentally, when S-Series production ends, Saturn will be without a coupe model until next spring when the 2003 Quad Coupe debuts. Saturn is trying to decide how many SC coupes it needs to build so that its retailers will have a coupe to sell until the first quarter of 2003.
In addition to these special edition S-Series models, Saturn will also be building more 4-cylinder and 5-speed manual VUEs with the popular Sport Package. Expect a new special outdoor edition VUE to arrive later in the summer.
