The next stab at a Saab SUV is reportedly going to be... a Saab. Word is that the newest hauler will have "Saab-DNA design and technology." Designed by teams in Sweden and Germany, that means an Aero-X-like snout, some combi-type curves in the back, and an ascending shoulder line. No word on engines yet, but there looks to be a full range of options, and dealers who have seen the final car are excited. This is all very good news to Saab mavens who don't want another badge-engineered Tahoe. For the rest of us, our first chance to see it could be as soon as the 2009 Detroit Auto Show.

      So, are we going to get a new 9-5 anytime this decade, or are we going to have to wait fifteen years like we did with the 900?

      When Saab's flagship sees longer interdesign intervals than the Cavalier, you know something is wrong.

      i think you meant trailblazer not tahoe.

      Looking good. Now just make the 9-5 look good and Saab may be back on board.

      I can't tell, but I hope the fact they have it all doped up with tape means that the A-pillar is going to be smoothly faired into the side glass.

      That'll be a very Saab thing to do , evoking the old 900's wraparound windshield. And it'll be like nothing else on the road. Superficially difference? Yup. But a difference, and there are precious few of those these days.

      Saab never got a rebadged Tahoe, it was a TrailBlazer.

      Looks a lot like the Subaru SUV.

      Well it's mostly engineered by Opel but lets call it a Saab anyway. And yes, the finished product is very nice.
