Future SAAB's to use controle arm type suspension!

5 posts in this topic

Automobile mag is reporting that the next Epsilon platform will come in 2 versions. The base version will come with struts fore and aft and FWD only with a more premium version getting controle arms all around and opt AWD! This premium and more flexable next genoration Epsilon platform will be the bases for both the next 9-3 and 9-5 while the base strut suspended version will be used on the Chevy Malibu/Saturn Aura/Opel Vectra ect. With this HOPEFULLY being the case I wonder if the ZETA will be able to be as flexable as the next gen Epsilon in what type of suspension system it can use? That would be good if GM plans to use the ZETA for any future Cadillac or other premium models! :scratchchin:

I am willing to bet that GMNA's Zeta will be able to use McPheresons & SLAs.

Now they just need to wrap some visually exciting sheetmetal around these new chassis like the current Aura.

I couldn't agree more, the options are great but if it doesn't have original, attractive,exciting sheet metal they won't even get it on their radar.
