The guys at saabblog.net have a question for real SAAB fans.
What are you looking at?
Yes, it is an engine, but what engine?
The engine is the VM Motori V6 Diesel, internally known as A29DT, in the engine bay of a 9-5 II.
According to Saabblog.net this car is now for sale in the Netherlands. For the ones that think about buying this car. You maybe could fined some spares for this engine at a Chrysler garage, but I can’t say if the version used by Chrysler is identical to the one that GM was willing to use, but paired with this engine is also a automatic transmission that Aisin developed specially for that Engine, and that GM never used for any other engine. The Transmission was able to cope with the 550Nm of the engine. For instance the strongest automatic gearbox used by Saab on the 9-5 NG, the AF40, was only able to cope with 450 Nm of torque.
An insider has told us that a first 9-4x prototype did exist with that engine.
