Variety has always been the spice of life, but that old adage takes on a whole new meaning now that the Outlook has been added to the Saturn fold. This wagon/sport-utility-vehicle cross joins the German-based Aura sedan and sporty Sky roadster as the company's new kids on the block, providing a surge of choices for fans of this General Motors division. The 2007 Outlook is actually one of a trio of wagon-like sport-utility vehicles from GM. It joins the similarly sized and featured '07 GMC Acadia and the Buick Enclave that's scheduled to appear next year.

Far from falling, the Sky is actually raising Saturn's normally conservative profile and adding more luster to General Motors' expanding crop of fun and sporty automobiles. Since GM launched its import-fighting Saturn marque back in the early 1990s, the lineup has primarily focused on sane and sensible automobiles that fit right in with the brand's no-hassle, no-haggle marketing philosophy. Lately, however, there have been signs that the division is aggressively courting the performance/image crowd with the launch of the Red Line brand of vehicles, essentially an option grouping that's currently available on the Ion Quad Coupe and Vue sport-ute.

Is it a sport-utility vehicle that wants to be a minivan, or a minivan that just wants to look a little more rugged? When it comes to the new 2005 Saturn Relay, you could easily build a case for both, but since this seven-passenger people-mover shares its architecture with the rebranded '05 Chevrolet Uplander, Buick Terazza and Pontiac Montana SV6 minivans, we'll settle on the latter. Perhaps, however, we should be a little more focused on the fact that until now there hasn't actually been a Saturn minivan to brag about, which begs the question: what's up with that?

Jim Stanicek caught a view of Saturn in his telescope. It was during a Tri-State Astronomers star party, a gathering where the public had been invited to a special viewing of the cosmos from Antietam National Battlefield. A young teen was next in line to peer into the telescope. "We've got Saturn here," Stanicek said. The girl took a cursory look and said, "Oh, OK," clearly unimpressed. Stanicek, 62, of Hagerstown, asked whether she really saw it, if she'd viewed the rings.

GM has scheduled a conference call for 9 a.m. EDT Friday to discuss the sale, and Penske will be on the call along with Saturn General Manager Jill Lajdziak, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the deal has not been made public. Penske would get Saturn's dealership network, which consistently has scored highly in customer satisfaction surveys.
