Unlike the Saturn and Opel branded CUVs, the upmarket Saab and Cadillac will be powered by the new 2.9L V-6 diesel that was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show last March. It will be interesting to see if GM decides to offer the diesel in either vehicle in the US market since GM has previously indicated that they don't plan to offer that engine here. The Saab version at least will also use the new all-wheel-drive system recently introduced on the 9-3. Production should start within two years and a preview of the Saab could come as soon as Detroit show in January.
