Saturn will unveil its 2004 Vue Red Line SUV at the New York Auto Show this month.
The limited-production Vue Red Line is the first of Saturn's series of performance-tuned vehicles, which will share the Red Line name.
The Vue Red Line features a lowered body, sport suspension and steering, ground effects and 18-inch wheels and tires. It will be offered with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Production is set to start early next year at Saturn's assembly plant in Spring Hill, Tenn.
Pricing has not been determined.
The Vue Red Line will come with a standard V6 engine that delivers 250 hp and up to 242 pounds-feet of torque. The Red Line's engine also will be available on other 2004 VUEs.
The General Motors Performance Division developed Saturn's Red Line lineup, which will include a special-edition ION quad coupe to be launched early next year.
Saturn expects to produce about 3,000 Vue Red Lines and 5,000 Ion Red Lines in the 2004 model year.
