NEW Saturn Outlook spy pics

Recommended Posts

Apparently, this guy was coming out of the Phoenix airport, and there waiting to pick someone up was a guy from GM in a camo'd Outlook. Told him to stop taking pictures, but he still got a few:

A bit boxier, but I think I like the proportions on this thing better than the melted looking Enclave.

EDIT: Here, and I quote, was the pic-taker's story:

I shot these January 3rd, just finally getting around to posting them. From reading through this post, I assume this is the new outlook.

Circumstances for taking these was quite funny. I was at the Phoenix airport, and this guy was sitting right outside where people wait to pick up arriving passengers. Strange place for a preproduction car, don't you think? He had the nerve to tell me I can't take pictures of the car. I just chuckled. Maybe you shouldn't take the car to the airport....a place with lots of tourists with CAMERAS...duh. He's lucky I'm a nice guy and didn't snap a bunch of interior shots when he rolled down the window to tell me to stop shooting pics...

"Yea, I'm going to go in a camoed prototype vehicle to a busy airport and not expect anyone to come along and take pictures." Durrr!

Anyway, it looks like it might turn out ok from what detailing I can make out.

judging by that subrban that's right next to it, this thing is much larger than I had thought.

But as far as appearance goes, it looks good for what I can see, can't wait to see it uncovered. The headlights I'm having a hard time if they're more like aura/astra style or s3x style.

those muliple bars could be just part of the camouflage, or a least I hope since it doesn't fit in the scheme that the Aura and Sky have.

Thr grille doesn't seem to fit with the "new" Saturn, I guess we'll have to wait for the debut. And that power cord could be for an engine block heater? Doesn't make sense for Phoenix, but who knows.

After looking up some "Opel" concepts I remembered about this one

Taking that into effect, body colored does look mazdaish, but chrome I think really sets it appart from that.

Hmm... Looks good. I see the theme of the grill. While it is Mazda-like, it still somewhat fits with Saturn's theme with the larger bar housing the Saturn badge. Again, though, it looks good. Really good. Looks like projector beam headlights...

The grill is typical Saturn, it's just that it is all painted white to help in the camo'd sense of things.

As far as the size, I was suprised as to how big the enclave was when I saw it at NAIAS. They are pretty big.

I much prefer the uni-bar look of the Aura/Sky. Just a nice chrome strip with the logo over a grille. Doesn't make the fornt end look as cluttered.

awesome shot

i really think GM is on to something big with the Enclave and Outlook. only thing is, it will certainly not be affordable for me.

From the views we can see here. It looks very differentiated from the Enclave...

Any idea what that grounded AC plug hanging out of the front lower grille is for??

Engine block heater.

I would have told the dude to kiss my ass then I would have waited for his person to load their luggage into the back, walked right up behind it, stuck my camera just close enough to get a real nice interior shot.

Like the idiot expected any different? If anything, I wouldnt be surprised if he did not catch $h! for it. I know the guy that left the hood open on the Solstice GXP that Doane shot that we ran got a real nice talking to.

You've got to understand that any engineer will drive a vehicle they don't put gas or money into anyplace, anytime everytime.

translated, engineers are some of the cheapest people you will ever meet.

I like it! It sits really nice on the suspension with little wheel space and it looks very classy from what we can see. I really think by years end Saturn will be the most talked about brand in the US.

Also though I love the Enclave I am glad GM is doing better sharing of platforms and making the products look totally different. Inside I know it will look very similar though.

Those rims just aren't doin it for me, and I noticed how low this thing sits to the ground, and the bold front bumper. Sport package maybe?

My gosh man... it is a Toyota!!! Anyone serious person would recognize this as a Toyota. Just look at the fit and finish. Man that new Toyota grill looks so cohesive with the design. Wow! Score another one for the big T!!!

Not bad looking-a bit reminiscent of the Rendezvous in its shape, but hopefully not as tall but still with similar, if not more, passenger and cargo room. Too bad the next VUE and Antara won't look anything like that hot concept car-instead they're stylish, but not outlandishly like the concept.
