Saturn VUE Green Line 2 Mode - Kelley Blue Book Interviews Jill Lajdziak

FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS CHECK OUT http://www.kbb.com/kbb/NewsAndReviews/VideoLibrary.aspx Saturn VUE. When the Saturn VUE Green Line 2 Mode (its full and proper name) arrives near the end of 2008, the VUE will be the first vehicle to offer a choice of two hybrid powertrains. The hybrid system in the original VUE Green Line is inexpensive, but doesn't offer all the fuel savings of a "full" hybrid. The VUE Green Line 2 Mode, on the other hand, promises a 50-percent increase in city fuel economy over its gas-only V6 counterpart and an impressive range of more than 500 miles. Unlike the first VUE hybrid, the second will be able to run solely on electric power at low speeds. Expect a starting price in the high $20,000 range.

Honda Pilot Prototype - Kelley Blue Book's First Look
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS CHECK OUT http://www.kbb.com/kbb/NewsAndReviews/VideoLibrary.aspx Honda Pilot. The Pilot Prototype is Honda's way of revealing the 2009 Pilot without totally revealing the 2009 Pilot. Some of the details will change, but expect the production Pilot to closely resemble the prototype, which is decidedly bolder and even more SUV-like than the first-generation Pilot. We do know the next Pilot will feature the same V6 offered in the latest Accord, which is capable of running on six, four or three cylinders. Honda points to increased roominess as another highlight, especially in the third row. Look for the newest Pilot in Spring 2008 at a starting price expected to remain in the high $20,000 range.

FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS CHECK OUT http://www.kbb.com/kbb/NewsAndReviews/VideoLibrary.aspx Volkswagen Routan. The Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country have a new sibling. Volkswagen's new Routan minivan shares its architecture, powertrains and assembly line with Chrysler's minivans, but offers distinct styling, a totally unique (and much nicer) interior and suspension tuning that promises more eager handling. Niceties include second- and third-row video screens, touch screen navigation, a power liftgate and dual power sliding doors. The Routan will also offer Chrysler's 197- and 251-horsepower V6 engines, each attached to a six-speed automatic transmission. Volkswagen says the Routan will start below $25,000.

Jeep Renegade Concept - Kelley Blue Book
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS CHECK OUT http://www.kbb.com/kbb/NewsAndReviews/VideoLibrary.aspx Jeep Concept Car. Jeep Renegade Concpet Car. Among the big ideas packed into the small, two-seat, dune-buggy-like Jeep Renegade Concept are a flat rear deck that can be outfitted with a number of gear-holding "lids," and a body and interior formed of one-piece molded composites that eliminate the need for harmful paint solvents. The Renegade's hybrid propulsion system can deliver about 40 miles on electricity alone, at which point a three-cylinder diesel engine cycles on to maintain battery charge and extend range to 400 miles and return fuel economy of up to 100 miles per gallon.
