The LS2 is Where?

September 17th, 2008 · No Comments


The ubiquitous GM LS2 V8 is one of the great engines for sale right now.  It evolved from the infamous LS1 engine and turned into the 6.0 liter 400hp heart of the 2005 Corvette.  The LS2 has also served time in the Pontiac GTO, Chevy Trailblazer SS, Chevy SSR and the Cadillac CTS-V.  The LS2 is also serving in GM’s European and Australian cars in the Vauxhall Monaro VXR and the Holden Special Vehicles.

There is one more place that LS2 is put into duty by Saab in their SUV.  The Saab 9-7 Aero is an AWD SUV with 400lb-ft of torque and 390hp.  

This Saab SUV firmly places the ”Sport” in SUV.  It also has a great does of style and luxury.  Saab is proud of this vehicle.  The MSRP is $47,000.  However, right now, GM has its employee pricing, and there a ton of incentives on this gas eating 364cid V8.  People aren’t interesting burning that much gas for a go fast SUV.  However, if you are looking for a high speed, luxury, stealthy SUV then you can get a great deal on the 9-7 Aero. 

The current incentives put this $47,275 SUV at $34,788.  That is over $12,000 off!  That’s a heck of deal if you can afford the gas.
