2012 Saab 9-4X to debut at the LA Auto Show this November


It seems that new cars are being confirmed in the unlikeliest of places these days, as the LA Auto Show’s Twitter account has revealed that the 2012 Saab 9-4X crossover will be debuting at the convention this November.

The Saab 9-4X has been a long time coming, with a concept (pictured above) previewing the production model for quite some time. It will share the higher riding Theta platform with the Cadillac SRX, and target the American market.

Rumors are saying that engines from the 2011 9-5 will be appearing under the hood of the 9-4X. This means a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and the a beefier 2.8-liter turbocharged six-cylinder will be available. As its name suggests, all-wheel drive will be present, with power coming through a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Those are the details, but expect more to be revealed as we approach the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
