Deal of the Week: 2007 Saab 9-7x

Forget for a minute the Saab truck's humble midwestern upbringing. Pretend there's no such thing as a Chevy Trailblazer that gave its hide so a Swedish SUV may live. Sure, a luxury SUV without a luxury platform underpinning it is at best a sophisticated pimp job and at worst a job for the Better Business Bureau. But… » 8/22/07 11:00am 8/22/07 11:00am

GM Makes With the Polaroids: Saab 9-7X Aero Gallery

We did say when we got them, you'd get them. And whether or not you spent the weekend pining away for official shots of the Saab 9-7X Aerosmith Edition, they arrived across the wire earlier today.

Although it may seem it's a few grand higher than the 2006 pricing entry point of $23,710 — it's really about the same, because that was… » 9/08/06 4:24pm 9/08/06 4:24pm

Pimp My Saabblazer: 9-7x Gets Tuned

Our friends at Trollhattan Saab bring us this Saab 9-7x that's been given a proper Swedish donking by Uddevalla tuning shop, Speedparts. It's the first such job we've seen on the US-built, Vortec V8-powered, Swede-ified Chevy Trailblazer. We're not yet sure if we'd like it to be our last. » 6/28/06 8:18am 6/28/06 8:18am
