Codenamed GMT168, the new Saab 9-4X is intended to kick off Saab’s highly anticipated aesthetic overhaul with its introduction in 2010. Until recently, photos of the 2010 Saab 9-4X were limited to heavily camouflaged spy shots, but Brenda Priddy and her team of espionage experts managed to score some stills of the new 9-4X showing some skin.

Engineered to be Saab’s first Crossover vehicle, the 2010 9-4X shares a platform with the Cadillac SRX and is intended to replace Saab’s current SUV offering, the 9-7X. Powered by a 2.0L turbocharged engine, spec sheets leaked from GM have the Saab 9-4X putting out a whopping 245-hp and 295 lb-ft of torque while still maintaining a healthy EPA average of 25 mpg city/37 mpg highway. In-house tests claim the 9-4X can accelerate from 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds, but I’d like to reserve final judgement on the matter until my hands are graced with a set of keys.
