Saab 9-7X Altitude
Swedish Sport-Ute With Attitude
Saab's 9-7X SUV gets a special edition for 2007, the Altitude. And only 500 of these specially-equipped vehicles will be made.
Beyond the standard equipment, the Altitude Edition includes 18-inch polished alloy wheels, side-assist steps, a rear DVD player, and carbon-fiber-gray metallic paint. The pack will be offered at savings of nearly $1,000 than if the items were ordered individually. The Altitude comes in 4.2-liter V6 or 5.3-liter V8 guises, bringing the total price (MSRP, destination charge and Altitude pack) to $42,130 and $44,130 respectively.
For 2007, OnStar-equipped 9-7X models will feature a new service called Turn-by-Turn Navigation, the first factory-installed, fully-integrated GPS navigation system from OnStar. Turn-by-Turn allows consumers to talk to a live advisor, who in turn sends complete step-by-step directions to customers' vehicles through their OnStar system. Also, a tire pressure monitoring system becomes standard and one new color, Crystal Blue metallic, has been added.
