The Saab 9-4X is Sweden’s distinctive answer to some western cross-overs. The trouble with many of the latest crossovers is that they lose their company identity in the design. They begin to look and perform the same way.
The Saab 9-4X was designed with only unique Saab characteristics in mind. In particular, this crossover took cues from the three-door turbo Saab 900. It has perfected the trademark Saab “hatch,” and the push-button, center-console start. The Saab Aero engines are issued in either front, or four-wheel drive with standard power distribution of 90/10 in the front-drive model.
The engine of the Saab 9-4X is by no means the most supercharged of the company’s concept vehicles, but it does “perform like a champ.” It features a Spark Ignition Direct Injection (SIDI), gasoline system. It has a standard 3.0 liter V6 with 265 horsepower. The turbo 9-4X is produced with a 2.8 liter, Turbo LP9 V6, 300 horsepower engine. It has been compared to the Asian high-performance six-speed automatic, which is amazing in such a heavy vehicle. Fuel consumption and C02 emissions are well within international production standards.
Only an extremely limited number of 9-4X engines were produced between 2010 and 2012. SouthwestEngines has noticed used motors from the Saab 9-4 X are in high demand and are becoming a greatly-valued commodity. We also have discovered that many people who love Cadillac crossovers, are switching to the 9-4X because the engine performance seems to match the overall construction better. It more successfully functions as a powerful highway, or “casual fun” vehicle.
