    Saab 9-6X New Front!!

    The Saab 9-6X is a new kind of minivan designed to appeal to more then just "soccer moms"
    *The base 9-6X has a naturally aspirated 4cyl engine with 220hp and FWD
    *The Aero model has a turbo 4cyl engine with 270hp powering all wheels.
    *The top of the line Arc has a turbo I-6 making 325hp and AWD.
    It starts at $18,000 for the base and goes up to $30,000 for the Arc. The Aero cost about $24,000

    Re: Venture

    ooo.. nice chop, very clean too!
    while it's a good design, i think a few details would make it a tish more chevy, like perhaps a cross bar across the grill? you know, just little chevy-esque bits and pieces. Perhaps some foglights too?
    And while it's probably just me, it seems like the back slopes down at a funny angle, but if that's just highlighting your design, ignore me.]
    But everything considered...it's a very nice chop with along with a great design idea. Good Job!

    Don't get me wrong, it looks good, but it's misbadged I think. Looks VERY Saab, and that's not a bad thing. So why is it a Chevrolet?

    Oooh! Heres an idea, change the black peices of trim to match the color of the car. Click on the color coding tutorial in the link below if you don't know how to. But I assume you do.

    Definately call it Saab... Saab 9-6x?? And I'd agree w/ firebird about the roofline... kinda throws it off for me... but looks great otherwise!

    Well if Volvo is gettin in to the minivan market... I like the design but try and incorporate more Aero X design cues.
