Oh, Saturn how you tease we lubberly schoolboys in our size-nine Pro Keds, flaunting the name of your new midsized crossover SUV in our faces, yet revealing only a fuzzy closeup on its badge. Your callow laughter is a white-hot ember on our souls. OK, maybe not white-hot, maybe more like "soupy." Either way, GM announced its new 2007 model will be called the Outlook, which the company says "features dynamic design and a refined, sophisticated interior. As if such skirted language is enough to get us to hand over our juice box.

The company also confirmed that Saturn s 2007 Aura midsize sedan will go into production during summer 2006. The Aura will be a Saturnized version of the European Opel Vectra.

The Aura sedan will be powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with variable valve timing, with an optional DOHC 3.6L V6 VVT producing around 250 horsepower. The 3.6-liter engine will be hooked to a new six-speed autobox.

Along with the Aura and Sky roadster (coming in early 2006) the Outlook is the third of three new, Euro-influenced models joining the Saturn line as part of GM's plan to refocus the brand on, uh, Euro-influenced models.
