Spy Photos: Chevrolet S3X

Spies caught GM's new, Daewoo-built SUV — based on the Chevrolet S3X concept shown at the Paris motor show in 2004 — during tow-load testing somewhere in Europe. This particular model will likely be the 2006 Opel Frontera II, the first model to take advantage of the S3X platform, with a launch that could take place at this year's Frankfurt show or the Paris show in 2006, and sales beginning in early 2006. Europeans will also get the S3X as a Chevrolet-branded model, offerred with one of Chevrolet's diesel engines, while Asian and South East Asian association (ASEAN) markets will get a similar model branded Daewoo. In the US, Saturn will likely get five- and seven-seat versions to replace the Vue in 2007, while Buick may also see an upscale configuration, likely to be endorsed by golf celebrities.
