Part of the large crossover vehicle segment, the Saturn Outlook was a strong rival to the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander back in 2007.
Based on the GM’s Lambda platform, the Saturn Outlook's new architecture allowed seating for 7 or 8 passengers, with a standard 3rd row of seats.
From the outside, the crossover featured a sleek styling using a new, fresh design language. The jewel headlamps and the brand new grille made the crossover more appealing than before.
At the rear, the tapered roofline led back to a wrap-around rear glass and chrome-trim taillights.
Inside, the cabin was very roomy and refined, while the instrument panel fitted with wood trim gave a luxurious touch.
Besides the standard features the Outlook was equipped with (such as a tilt-telescoping steering wheel, air conditioning, electronic stability control, and traction controls), luxurious features were also available: as remote start, voice-activated navigation, rear DVD entertainment, a double-moonroof, and leather upholstery.
All rear passengers enjoyed great comfort. The 2nd row could be fitted with either captain chairs or a bench, while the 3rd row of seats of suitable for adults, one of the reasons why the Outlook was more practical than its competitors.
The crossover offered a generous cargo capacity. To fit longer items into the trunk, users could fold flat the rear seats.
Under the hood, the Saturn Outlook came with a thirsty 3.6-liter V7 engine that developed 270 hp.
