Saab 9-4X 2011: Assemble in Mexican soil
To make a long story short, it was an era not so long ago was that some models of General Motors-shared their platform, or some mechanical components with products from the Swedish brand Saab.
A certain period not very glorious for Saab when General Motors became the guess-"rescuer" of the Swedish manufacturer.
At the time, Cadillac and Saab had jointly developed two new vehicles relatively compact SUV-type models are the so-called Cadillac SRX Series and Saab 9-4X which hitherto was only a concept became prototype.
Today, Saab still swimming in very turbulent waters with its new owner, the Dutch group Spyker.
As a homecoming
In about a month, the compact SUV Saab 9-4X one cousin p'tit Cadillac SRX is nicknamed enters it in the few dealers of the brand in North America.
Like the Cadillac SRX, Saab 9-4X is also assembled at the factory Ramos Aripze Mexico.
Ironically, while the vast industrial complex that serves mainly to Trollhattan assembly of different models offered by Saab is almost desert, here it is again with the help of his former owner that was put in motion production Saab 9-4X and since May 16.
The Saab 9-4X
Although qu'assembles both on the same assembly line, the Cadillac SRX and Saab 9-4X have their own identity and their own silhouette.
However, they use mechanical same elements:
3.0L V6, atmospheric power of 265 horses
V6 2.8-liter turbocharged a 300 horsepower
Only the six-speed automatic transmission is offered.
Like its American cousin, the Saab 9-4X is offered in front-wheel drive versions has or has traction integral with the 3.0-liter engine. For those who choose the powered by the turbocharged versions, they automatically will have the integral traction.
Not so compact that!
