Dependability and luxury; roomy and quiet; a hybrid of European flair with American underpinnings.
For 2007, a tire pressure monitoring system is now standard in all Saab 9-7Xs. OnStar has turn-by-turn navigation, and Crystal Blue Metallic is now available as an exterior color.
The 2007 Saab 9-7X uses the chassis and engines from the highly-praised Chevy TrailBlazer, which means the 9-7X has rugged dependability and proven capability to haul family and cargo. A 290-horespower inline 4.2L six-cylinder engine and a 302-horsepower version of Chevy's 5.3L V8 allow for users to select the powerplant most appropriate for them. Saab adds their own unique European design flairs, inside and out, and an extra dose of luxury that is unavailable in the American editions.
Saab's parent company, General Motors, responded to the Swedish marque's lack of a SUV offering by introducing the 2005 9-7X. The 2007 9-7X continues to be based on the Chevy TrailBlazer, resulting in a highly desirable vehicle with Saab design flair and rugged American dependability.
Prices start at $38,990 for the six-cylinder version of the 9-7X. This inline six generates 290 horsepower and 277 ft-lbs of torque. The 5.3L V8 engine increases power and torque to 303 horsepower and 330 ft-lbs respectively. It also features "displacement on demand," which shuts off four cylinders under constant cruising conditions to increase fuel economy. Since every 9-7X comes equipped with a receiver hitch, the V8 is likely the smartest choice. GM says this vehicle is rated for towing up to 6,500 pounds. Both engines are backed with a four-speed automatic transmission.
The Saab stylists did a good job integrating the traditional "three-port grille" onto the 9-7X. Brand specific 18-inch wheels help to increase the family resemblance, and the "disappearing" D pillar (oft seen on Saab wagons) furthers Saab's unique styling cues.
Inside, the most distinctive characteristic is center-mounted ignition, which is done to help prevent knee injuries in the event of an accident. Saab has been emphasizing the safety of their vehicles for decades, and this is just one small touch.
The seats are incredibly comfortable, with an eight-way power adjuster and nice lumbar support. With the split rear seat up there is 39.8 cubic feet of storage in back. Fold the seat down and you can pack 80.1 cubic feet of cargo into the hold.
Driving the 9-7X is a mostly familiar experience for Chevy truck owners. The suspension and steering have been tuned to give the 9-7X more of a European ride. And while, you won't mistake the ride for a Saab sedan, it is quite competitive with rivals in this price class.
All wheel drive is standard, as is electronic stability control turn, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS. The Saab 9-7X comes loaded with most all of the luxury items you'd want as standard equipment, too. A small sample of these items include a moonroof, power heated mirrors, front fog lamps, heated leather seats, dual zone automatic climate control, a six-disc CD changer, an electrochromic rearview mirror, and a Bose audio system with XM satellite radio. The V8 is equipped with xenon headlights with washers and adjustable pedals.
The additional luxury items found on the V8 can be added to the I6 for $800. Both models can be equipped with a rear seat DVD entertainment system, a navigation system, or an Altitude Edition, which includes the aforementioned entertainment system, unique wheels, assist steps, and special Carbon Fiber Gray Metallic paint.
