2010 Saab 9-5 Is The 2.8-Liter Turbocharged V6
The Saab 9-5 design is over a decade old, but there are many changes on the horizon, especially for the power plant of the 2010 Saab 9-5. Under the new ownership of GM, Saab will be offering multiple engine options for the newest Saab 9-5. All of these new engines have been redesigned under the supervision of GM.
The smallest and most efficient engine option for the 2010 Saab 9-5 is the 1.6-lite turbocharged gasoline engine, which is capable of 180 horsepower. In fact, every engine being offered by Saab on the 2010 9-5 comes equipped with a turbocharged from the factory.
A step up in power from the 1.6-liter is the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, capable of 220 horsepower. There is also a second engine option for the standard 2.0-liter gasoline engine, and that is the E85 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel, which puts out 160 horsepower, and can run on both conventional diesel and biodiesel fuel.
However, the most powerful engine offered on the 2010 Saab 9-5 is the 2.8-liter turbocharged V6. The 2.8-liter V6 engine will top all the other engines in the Saab line, producing over 300 horsepower. There are also rumors that GM will offer a supercharged version of their 3.6-liter V6 which will offer over 350 horsepower, which will make the 2010 Saab 9-5 the most powerful sedan offered by Saab. However, this amount of power would be too much for a front wheel drive transmission, and would probably be featured on an all-wheel-drive platform.
All of the 2010 Saab models will come equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift override system. It is likely that only the European market will receive a true 6-speed manual transmission on the 2010 Saab 9-5, but it could be offered on the American market as well.
