2011 Saab 9-4X - Click above for high-res image gallery

Production of the all-new [URL="http://www.autoblog.com/model/9-4x"]2011 Saab 9-4X[/URL] crossover has started on schedule, despite the company's crippling financial woes. While production of the rest of the Saab lineup at its Trollhattan, Sweden plant has ground to a cash-strapped halt, 9-4Xs are rolling off the assembly lines in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.
The plant producing the latest Saab is under contract to the Swedes from [URL="http://www.autoblog.com/make/gm/"]GM[/URL], and with any luck will help jumpstart a recovery. Under its very Swedish skin, the Saab 9-4X packs the same underpinnings as the [URL="http://www.autoblog.com/model/srx"]2011 Cadillac SRX[/URL].

The base model, which comes with a 265-hp 2.8-liter V6, starts at $33,380, with the top-whack, turbocharged model ringing the register at $48,010. Ominously for Saab, the 300-hp mill is the same engine Cadillac just pulled from the SRX lineup to deal with reliability issues.
