The new-look-for-2008 Saturn Vue, fascia obscura-less and sporting a look all it's Opel, was picked up by spy photog Brenda Priddy's li'l Metro D man, Chris Doane โ€” and bought n' paid for by the folks who travel a road which knows no straightness. The new-for-2009 four-door CUV is expected to be built at the General's Ramos Arizpe, Mexico plant. According to the spy photog's sources, it'll come in a choice of manual or auto tranny with either a pair of V6's, two separate hybrid systems or a partridge in a pear tree. One of the two hybrid engines will reportedly use a Belt Alternator System (BAS) (that'd be the 2.4-liter), the second system will use GM's 3.6-liter V-6 and incorporate a hybrid powerplant from the joint-development team of DaimlerChrysler, General Motors and BMW. Yay, team!
