The Saturn VUE is a compact crossover SUV from General Motors' Saturn marque, and is Saturn's top-selling model in the United States. It was the first vehicle to use the GM Theta platform. The VUE is the oldest model in the Saturn lineup since the demise of the L-Series in 2005. A second generation VUE was launched in 2007 for the 2008 model sharing styling with GM's global Antara model. The vehicle is also known as the GMC Terrain (Middle East), Holden Captiva (Oceania), Opel Antara (mainland Europe), and Opel Antara (UK/Ireland).

First Generation

The VUE was introduced for the 2002 model year and was designed by Saturn. It was manufactured at the Spring Hill GM plant. Its unibody platform is shared with the Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and the European Opel Antara. The first generation ran from model year 2002-2007.

Four-cylinder VUEs use the Ecotec I4. The L81 V6 from the L-Series and 5-speed Aisin AF33 automatic transmission were initially offered, but starting in 2004, all 6-cylinder VUEs were equipped with the 250 hp (186 kW) Honda-manufactured L66 engine and a Honda transmission. The four-cylinder VUE was available with the VTi continuously-variable transmission (CVT) until GM canceled it for 2005. The Family II is a straight-4 piston engine that was originally developed by Opel in late 1970s for use in the Opel Ascona B and Opel Kadett D. Over time, the engine block has evolved to include many modern features such as DOHC and fuel injection. ...

The VUE received a facelift for the 2006 model year. Upgrades included a redesigned interior with higher-quality materials, a new bumper and grille, and some minor cosmetic pieces to the exterior. OnStar is now standard as well as cruise control and automatic headlights.

Cruise control (sometimes known as speed control or Autocruise) is a system to automatically control the speed of an automobile. ...


Red Line

Saturn introduced a special high-performance line of vehicles in 2004 under the name, "Red Line". The VUE Red Line includes the 250 hp (186 kW) L66 V6 and sportier suspension tuning for performance. 18 in alloy wheels, ground-effect front bumpers, chrome exhaust tips, special black leather and suede seats, footwell lighting, and a special gauge cluster complete the visual updates. It also includes some special interior features as well like a better audio system.[1] The L66 is an OEM V6 engine built by Honda but sold by General Motors in the Saturn VUE SUV. The L66 was acquired as part of a swap with Honda, who received the Circle L 1. ...


Green Line

The high-performance VUE Red Line was joined for 2007 by an environmentally-oriented Green Line model. The VUE is a mild hybrid, or assist hybrid, using what GM calls a "belt alternator starter" (BAS) system.[2] A large electric motor is connected to the crankshaft via a special accessory drive belt, with a modified automatic transmission fitted. Mild hybrids are essentially conventional vehicles with oversized starter motors, allowing the engine to be turned off whenever the car is coasting, braking, or stopped, yet restart quickly and cleanly. ... For other types of Hybrid Transportation, see Hybrid (disambiguation)#Transportation. ... General Motors will introduce a mild hybrid system called belt alternator starter (or BAS) in the 2006 Saturn VUE Green Line. ...


It automatically stops the engine when the vehicle comes to a halt and instantly restarts it when the vehicle must move again. Not to be confused as just a "start-stop" system, the electric motor also assists somewhat in acceleration, though not to the extent that Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system does. A Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery located under the load floor powers the electric motor, as well as collects and stores regenerative braking energy. The NiMH also provides some electric assist to the engine during steady driving, further improving fuel economy. The regenerative charging and electric motor assist functions are shown to the driver via an analog gauge on the dash board, and real-time fuel-economy feedback is accomplished via an "eco" light that glows when the instantaneous fuel economy is beating the window sticker fuel economy values. This article is about the Japanese motor corporation. ... Integrated Motor Assist (commonly abbreviated as IMA) is Hondas hybrid car technology, introduced in 1999 on the Insight. ... A nickel metal hydride battery, abbreviated NiMH, is a type of rechargeable battery similar to a nickel-cadmium (NiCd) battery but has a hydrogen-absorbing alloy for the anode instead of cadmium. ...


The fuel savings are 20% up from the base vehicle's 22/27 mpg city/highway EPA sticker to 27/32 mpg, the highest highway fuel economy of any 2007 model SUV sold in the US market. [3] In Canada, according to Saturn "the result is a VUE that gets an estimated 8.8L/100 km (27 mpg) city and 6.7 L/100 km (35 mpg) highway."[4] Miles per gallon (MPG, or mpg) is a measure of fuel efficiency - the number of miles the car can run on one gallon of fuel. ...

Miles per gallon (MPG, or mpg) is a measure of fuel efficiency - the number of miles the car can run on one gallon of fuel. ...


The Green Line has a 170 hp (127 kW) 2.4 L Ecotec DOHC-phaser engine which replaces the standard 144 hp (107 kW) 2.2 L engine, resulting in the improvement of 0-60 mph acceleration time by 1.0 seconds. Pricing for the hybrid is about US$2,000 more than a similarly-equipped VUE, and debuted in production form on January 8, 2006 at the North American International Auto Show. The Green Line went on sale in fall 2006. The Family II is a straight-4 piston engine that was originally developed by Opel in late 1970s for use in the Opel Ascona B and Opel Kadett D. Over time, the engine block has evolved to include many modern features such as DOHC and fuel injection. ...

Saturn: Definition and Much More from Answers.com (5857 words)
Saturn's interior is similar to Jupiter's, having a rocky core at the center, a liquid metallic hydrogen layer above that, and a molecular hydrogen layer above that.
Saturn's usually bland atmosphere occasionally exhibits long-lived ovals and other features common on Jupiter; in 1990 the Hubble Space Telescope observed an enormous white cloud near Saturn's equator which was not present during the Voyager encounters and in 1994 another, smaller storm was observed.
Saturn appears to the naked eye in the night sky as a bright, yellowish star varying usually between magnitude +1 and 0 and takes approximately 29 and a half years to make a complete circuit of the ecliptic against the background constellations of the zodiac.
Saturn VUE - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (754 words)
