2006 Saturn Vue

Discover wide open spaces, inside and out. Start by choosing your travel style. Do you prefer an engine that's powerfully efficient or efficiently powerful? The 143-horsepower 2.2-liter engine is specially tuned for the stop-and-start driving you experience around town. For something with more brawn behind its brains, our class-leading 250-horsepower V-6 offers confidence in the passing lane, a 3,500-pound towing capacity2 and, in the front-wheel-drive VÚE, the segment's best overall gas mileage.1,3 Both engines come with front-wheel drive, and the V-6 is also available with all-wheel drive. Inside, the 70/30-split rear seats make room for items up to eight feet long once you've folded down the front passenger seat. Smaller stuff is no less important—so there's hidden console storage, handy cargo bins and a rear cargo organizer that keeps bags and their contents in place, instead of all over the place.

If you drive too fast, they'll only see a blur. If the VÚE is about taking it anywhere, the VÚE Red Line is about taking it further. Big 18-inch alloy wheels on wide, low-profile tires keep you in touch with the street. Front and side ground effects lower the VÚE's look and streamline its aerodynamics. And with 250 horsepower, the engine delivers performance that puts the sport back in sport utility vehicle. Inside, the contact points of the driving experience have earned long overdue respect: the floor pedals feature gleaming chrome accents that reflect footwell lighting in warm amber or cool blue. The seats
get special treatment, too. They're wrapped in sueded fabric trimmed in black leather, with front sport seat bolsters that help your body corner right along with the VÚE Red Line. For complete Red Line specs, visit saturn.com /vue.

It may become a destination in itself. If time flies when you're having fun, long boring drives are behind you. Right in front of you, notice the steering wheel audio controls for the CD player and radio, standard on all models. Choose the available Saturn Advanced Audio System, and every note is powered by a 180-watt external amplifier pumping six premium speakers. Or enjoy your own playlists by plugging your MP3 player into the built-in auxiliary jack. Because
the VÚE is about expanding possibilities, XM Satellite Radio2 is also available. It brings you more than 150 channels, including news, sports, talk, comedy, traffic, weather and commercial-free music—all broadcasting coast-to-coast. And to keep your back seat passengers from becoming back seat drivers, the available DVD player1 is just the thing to keep their eyes off the road.

Nothing we put into it is as important as what you put into it. In a split second that feels like an eternity, you can forget all about the CD player and think only of your family's safety. Rest assured, we've spent more than a split second thinking about your safety—just ask the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The VÚE received their top rating of five stars for front- and side-impact tests1, thanks in no small part to our dual-stage front air bags and our steel spaceframe's crumple zones, which absorb collision energy that would otherwise affect the passenger compartment. That compartment
now features OnStar®, standard on every VÚE, including a one-year subscription to the Safe & Sound Service Plan. OnStar can save time by unlocking locked doors; more importantly, it can help save lives by automatically sending for assistance if your air bags deploy.3 New with our available Head Curtain Side Air Bags is a rollover sensing system, designed to provide greater protection in case of rollover.
