Check out this link for the new Ion Redline. Looks pretty good considering its a Saturn. Has 200 hp and 200 lbs/ft torque with a inter-cooled and supercharged Ecotec-4. Also, there will be a Red Line Vue with a 250hp Honda V-6! Pretty bold moves for Saturn!


Thanks to the guys over on Saturnfans.com for the info!

no matter wat it is still a saturn...i dont care if they throw a v8 under the hood they are ugly (even tho that is the best lookin one i have seen)...a saturn is a saturn, maybe if they take some drastic measures like hyundai did wit the tiburan and re-face it...but saturns have been lookin the same since they came into "view"

looks pretty nice, needs to be dropp'd though. at least the thought is there, unlike what we can say for the focus.

the nicest saturn ive seen was at the 2002 philly auto show: a lil more bling bling then i typically like, but i'd pimp it!

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I have to agree. Ford is/has dropped the ball massively AGAIN! I think the horsepower wars have already started.

Most likely, Ford will advertise the SVTF as the Ion's competitor. Powerful, maybe not in outright numbers (200 hp vs 170 hp). Everything else (e.g. fit & finish, handling, ride, etc.), advantage Ford.

As for a VUE competitor, I can only see them bringing over a C-Max type vehicle, or massaging an Escape.

As for all Saturns looking the same...um...that's the point. That's how you know it's a Saturn...supposedly. Actually, that Ion looks more like the new Sunfire

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">My parents bought one about 6 months ago. They both love it. From my own inspection the quality and finish is really good, better then I expected. Not 1 problem yet. They have the V6, it sounds good and moves pretty well.

When I was looking for a new car, I test drove a NEW Saturn.

I then tried a used one. 2 years old, lady driven, well taken care of.... BUT WOW!!!!!! talk about rattles squeeks clunks and other strange noises.

I guess that's what is expected from a car made entirely of plastic.

However, the Saturn really isn't a bad looking car.

GM interiors blow and do not have any new/good suspension accept the corvette and new GTO.

RSX/TSX from the front. But defeinitely looks like the Celica from the back with that 3 foot high bumper.

This should give ford a clear warning to wake up. But unfortunatly, the caviler will still come out before a fi'ed focus
