Chevy vehicle

Several times in the last couple of weeks I've seen some SUVs that looked like a Saturn Vue but had a Chevy emblem on them. Didn't see it in the Chevy website. Any answers? Thanks

The 2008 Saturn Vue compared to the 2008 Chevrolet Equinox.

The Saturn Division was eliminated after the 2009 model year. Steve's picture is the current version of the Chevrolet Equinox.

Definitely NOT an Equinox. Looks exactly like a Vue but has the Chevy bowtie on it. saw several on the road the last three weeks.

Following the demise of the Saturn brand in 2009 for the 2010 model year, the Vue was discontinued. However, GM continued to produce the Chevrolet Captiva Sport, for the Mexican and South American markets. The Chevrolet Captiva Sport was introduced for the US commercial and fleet markets in late 2011 for the 2012 model year.
Maybe you saw a 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport?

Here's a new Captiva Sport and the link titled "Saturn Vue is Back as Chev Captiva".

Saturn Vue is back as 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport

I wonder if the doors refuse to unlock on the Captiva once you're inside...

An island named "Captiva", huh? Former penal colony, or what????

Guess Raz is right about the doors that don't open from the inside...for 2014, they're prolly going to offer the "Alcatraz Upfit", which will include electrified bars on the windows!

Hi: Francesca Knowles... Don't know about "Penal colony" but you do have to pay a toll to get over there...so I guess you're sort of "Captive".
My fav. restaurant is over there... The Mucky Duck.http://www.muckyduck.com Sign inside the door reads " If you have reservations you're in the wrong place". If you complain about not getting a window seat they will roll up an aluminium window to your table
You'll be lucky to find a parking space for your rental Chevy...but don't park in the "Snow removal route"!!!
