Saturn Plans to Add New Car

The ION is slightly larger than the S-Series and will run on a more robust powertrain, featuring the Ecotec 2.2-liter, four-cylinder engine producing 137 horsepower.
A five-speed manual transmission is standard, but for the first time in North America, an automatic, continuously variable transmission will be available as an option on some models. The transmission was to be installed on Saturn's VUE sport utility vehicle, but was delayed because of faulty parts.
Unlike conventional automatic transmissions with a set number of gear ratios, a CVT has an infinite number allowing for smoother shifts and increased fuel economy, about the same as that of a manual transmission.
Perhaps the most dramatic difference is the instrument cluster, which has been moved to the center of the vehicle from the traditional spot behind the steering wheel.
