It sure gets leaky before an auto show
, doesn't it? While GM and Saab would like to keep a lid on the news of the Saab 9-4X BioPower concept CUV, the word is out, thanks to Automotive News
(subs req'd). The full details of this eathnol-ready CUV will be coming on Sunday at the Detroit Auto Show
, but we do know that the concept is powered by a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine that, when burning E85, can produce 300hp at 5,400 rpm as well as 295 pounds-feet of torque at anywhere between 2,600 to 5,100 rpm. The 9-4X BioPower also features amenities like a place to store your skis (what, no Segway
?), a panoramic glass roof and flush-mounted starter button. There will be more details on Sunday - at the latest.
