We're packing our bags and warming up the Autoblog Gulfstream to bring you the most immediate and extensive coverage of the New York Auto Show, but we couldn't take off without first passing on this first lookpeak at Saturn's forthcoming Outlook. Set to premiere later this week in the Big Apple, one thing is for sure-- Saturn's days as a small car company are long gone. A 3.6-liter V-6 with VVT paired with a six-speed automatic has been announced, but we wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of more cylinders announced in NY, given the size of this thing.

      WOW! This is one nice looking Saturn: This is the type of vehicles GM needs to produce to get back on track!

      What do you mean finally embrace Crossovers, you have to be kidding me. Crossovers have already been embraced; they are what SUVs should have been from the beginning. The slowest moving auto maker has finally decided Hey these crossover things might be a good idea and you think they might just now be embraced?

      The Rav4 and CRV started it, the Murano, FX and 330 brought it home and then everyone else has jumped on the bandwagon to catch up.

      The Outlook just brings some better styling and interior to the full-size crossover category. Much better looking than a Pilot or Highlander IMO. The Enclave if it stays fairly true to the concept (which I think it will) will be a brand defining vehicle for Buick. Better looking inside and out than the FX or 350, which are both excellent vehicles.

      I really like it!! I think all three of the new Saturns for car show have a real edge to them. I test drove one of the 2006 Vue's and liked it!

      The Outlook looks like a copy of the Toyota Sequoia!
      Except the Toyota is a V8 not a V6!
      I bought the 2006 VUE and love it!

      Compared to the Ford Freestyle, this has a nicer interior (except for the obviously fake wood) and considerably more cargo volume--117 cubic feet vs. 87--but what appears to be a significantly less adult-friendly third row. Fuel economy is lower than the Ford's, but still reasonable for such a large vehicle.

      Seems closer in character to the Pacifica, but with larger windows and, again, more cargo volume. Especially behind the third row.

      This vehicle might have what it takes to finally win people over to crossovers. I'm very much looking forward to the test drive.

      That thing is hideous; I almost jumped out of my seat when I saw it.

      Brand Specific Steering Wheels Please:
      Nothing makes me think of badge engineering like a square saturn logo in a round steering wheel emblem. The Aura concept from today's post is using the same steering wheel as the Pontiac Solstice. The Outlook's is the same as the Tahoe/Escalade. I applaud the recent interiors from GM, and think the steering wheel should be the next stage of their brand differentiation...it being probably the most touched tactile surface in the car (exept perhaps the seat)

      Too bad the Outlooks sister vehicle the Buick Enclave is last in line to come out instead of first, Im really waiting on that one. Still looks good Saturn, could be the start of a good turn around for the brand. Sky, Aura, Outlook, perhaps good design is finally returning to GM, congrats.

      Looks great. I have been waiting for Saturn to come out with a 6 or 7 passenger vehicle that wasn't a boring minivan. I love the dealer service and I've been so close to considering a VUE... I just need that extra seat or two for the occasional group outing.

      Question is: will Saturn make this available with the same technology as the VUE Green Line? With $3 gas in the equation, a greener SUV from Saturn would sure help!

      Looks great. Saturn's doing a great job...

      in response to #18. The Vue outsells the Equinox for 1 major factor.... Honda Engineered V6 250HP!
