Blazing Some Trolls: 2009 Saab 9-7X Aero

In 2005 General Motors released a Saab badged version of the mid-sized GMT360 SUV platform that shares parts with the Buick Rainier, Chevrolet TrailBlazer & SSR, GMC Envoy, Oldsmobile Bravada, and Isuzu Ascender.  The Saab 9-7x version featured some Saabish styling cues, but it was not that exciting until the 2008 model year when Saab released the LS2 powered Aero version (aka the Trollblazer), which was most powerful production "Saab" ever built.  Find this 2009 Saab 9-7X Aero here on eBay bidding for $5,100 reserve-not-met with $18,995 buy-it-now located in Valencia, PA. Tip from BP.


The 9-7x is a true unicorn, combining the power and chassis from a Chevy Trailblazer SS with the quirky styling and center mounted ignition switch from Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget.

  1. From the ad
    "ONE OF 112 97X AERO'S PRODUCED IN 2009
    ONLY 91 WERE FINISHED IN CARBON FLASH "

    So the really rare version is one of the 21 without the "carbon flash" ?

  2. Vega or Saab? So difficult to figure out what to do with my $18,995
    Also, the Saab sounds like a radio station....
    9-7X Aero FM - Swedish classic rock all day, every day.
