Saturn Sky Red Line

2008 Saturn Sky Red Line
GM Media Release

Saturn Sky Red Line 2008The Red Line performance model features an Ecotec turbocharged 2.0L engine, GM's first direct-injection offering in North America. It produces 260 horsepower (194 kW) at 5300 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque (353 Nm) from 2500 to 5250 rpm, making it GM's highest specific output engine ever at 2.1 horsepower per cubic inch of displacement (130 hp / 97 kW per litre) and the most powerful production engine in the Ecotec family.

Gasoline direct-injection technology helps the Ecotec engine produce more power while maintaining the lower fuel consumption of a small displacement port-injected engine.

With direct injection, fuel is delivered directly to the combustion chamber to create a more complete burn of the air/fuel mixture. Less fuel is required to produce the equivalent horsepower, especially at normal cruising speeds, than a conventional port-injection combustion system.

The Red Line builds on the strong chassis and equipment of the Sky, with additional hardware – such as a performance-tuned suspension – to increase performance.

Saturn Sky Red Line 2008The Red Line also features several unique interior and exterior differences compared to the Sky roadster, including dual polished aluminium exhaust outlets and 18-inch polished aluminium alloy wheels. The front lower fascia has unique styling elements, including functional brake cooling vents and a larger mesh pattern in the lower grille for improved air flow. The Red Line's headlamp appearance also is different, with black bezels replacing the Sky's bright finish.

The interior features a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, metallic sill plates, leather shift knob, stainless steel pedal covers, Red Line-specific gauges and a digital boost gauge included in the Driver Information Centre.
