No one seems to have noticed the 0-60 time of the V8 9-7x is the same as the 210hp/6 speed version of the 9-3SS at a very respectable 6.9 seconds. The chassis is lowered and there are sub-frame cross beams used exclusively in the 9-7x for road holding manners. There are also tons of performance parts including supercharger kits already available for the 5.3L V8 that should bolt right in. The stock brakes on this truck are garbage and would need work to make me comfortable especially if it is pushing 400hp. There is also an SS version of the Trailblazer coming out with much larger 4 piston calipers at all 4 corners that could be applied I'm sure. To put things into perspective, there was a Trailblazer twin turbo concept a couple years back which put out 400hp and was running 0-60 times around 5.5 sec. with the best time at 5.35 seconds. This is serious speed! Is this a Saab at heart?? I don't believe so and I would not expect the fit and finish to rival my 9-5. There are some good things going for it however and I do believe this was something Saab needed to do. It tells you something about the financial pitfalls the company is in when the 2 new models introduced are merely rebadges. The 9-2x is more of a farse if you ask me.
