9-7X Aero coming. Anyone considering?

Given that I have an LS-2 in my other car passion (2006 GTO), getting factory built 390 HP sounds sweet. And if you decide to make it a "true" Saab and turbocharge it, Mmmmmm, Yummy!

Still have the 9-5 Aero Wagon, and love it, but just like the Goat's 400HP "speaking to me", stuffing a modern Gen IV small block V8 in a Saab badged vehicle is pretty enticing.

What do you all think?

If I wanted a vehicle in this class, I would definitely get it. I really love the idea of towing a vintage Saab to a meet with a 9-7x.

But I don't want or need a vehicle of this type.

I would consider it if:
I could get one for the same price as the last gen suburban, and I could fit at least 1 stretcher in it.

So basically, no. And after seeing a buddy fit a stretcher into his magnum, its all the more reason to pick up a 9-5 wagon too.

Already have the 9-5 Wagon, and quite happy with it. Just drooling is all at the moment.

BTW, you coming tonight?

I know, I'm just messing. If I needed an SUV the 9-7 would be on the top of my list.

The one thing the 9-7x can do that pretty much all other Saabs can't is tow large items (ie boats).

400hp stock is also nice too.

I would never even consider buying one brand new, maybe used in a few years though.

I've seen some Trailblazer SS launches and they are very impressive. There was a TB SS at the track when I ran, it looked stock but had 2 huge NAWS bottles in the back. It was running mid/low 12s and was launching like no SUV I'd ever seen before.

The 9-7x will be the fastest 0-60 and 1/4 mile stock Saab ever.... I wonder how strong it will be from a roll?

Faster than a 5sp 9-2x Aero? ~5.5seconds

to be honest, if i needed an SUV, it would be on the bottom of mine.

i would consider a jeep, long before a trailblazer, and a toyota FJ cruiser before either.

why get a truck with the name " trail" in it if it cant blaze any real trails?

and besides, FJ cruisers kick ass
