Last week some of our readers found a VIN-card for the 9-4X MY12. In that card there were some engines that differ from the current MY11 offer. that VIN card has to still be seen as non official or as a rumour until Saab or GM confirms that they will use those engines.
One of those engines was an Engine with the GM RPO code LFW.
The LFW is a flexible fuel version of the LF1, capable of running on E85, gasoline, or any mixture of the two. Output is identical to the LF1.
The LF1 is the known 265HP engine of the MY 11 Saab 9-4X or the Cadillac SRX.
Today while reading the Swiss catalogue of the 9-4x, in Europe the 9-4x will not come earlier than October and as MY12, the model naming made me think about that VIN-card.
In some European markets only the 9-4x Aero with the 2.8T engine of the 9-5 will be on sale, but in some others the 3.0i will also be available. This engine, if we have to believe the Swiss catalogue, will be E85 capable.
