The 9-7X is Saab’s first SUV. It was mainly intended for the American market and was produced from 2005 to 2009, the year in which, after unsuccessful commercial results, it was replaced by the 9-4X. The 9-7X was also the first Saab to be assembled outside of Sweden: since its production process was largely shared with that of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer and the main target market was the American one, production took place at the General Motors Ohio plant. With its dimensions of 4,90 x 1,91 meters and its large hood, the Saab 9-7X evokes grandeur, without however giving up the typical features of non-SUV Saab cars, including the “Hockey Stick” on the C pillar. Thanks to its neat interior and sophisticated standard equipment, the 9-7X can be considered a considerable opponent to the more refined Audi Q5 and Volvo XC90, while maintaining features more of an off-road vehicle than a city car. The two engines initially available were a 279HP 4.7 6-cylinder and a 305HP 5.3 V8. In 2007, the very powerful β€œAero” version also debuted, which inherits its 396HP 6.0 V8 engine from the Chevrolet Corvette and promises to sprint from 0 to 100km/h in less than six seconds.
