About Saturn SL2

As a member of the eminent and characteristic Saturn S-Series, Saturn SL2 was produced by the subsidiary of General Motors Saturn Corporation (Saturn LLC) and sold under its brand Saturn between 1991 and 2000 as a compact vehicle. Originally introduced as a trim level of the SL, SL2, however, made a difference and became a most popular model in the lineup. But still, after being manufactured for about three generations, the SL2 was replaced by the Saturn Ion (ION) along with the whole S-Series.
The second-generation Saturn SL2 was produced from 1996 to 1999 based on the GM Z platform. It was offered in only one body style, 4-door sedan. But it came in several special editions including the 1994 Homecoming Edition, which had special Pearl White paint, 1998 Black Top Coupe Package, 1999 Homecoming Edition in Mint color. During this generation, Saturn SL2 was powered by a dual overhead cam 1.9 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 124 horsepower and 122 pound-feet of torque and this engine sent power through either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. Then the more recent SL2 arrived at the market in 1999 as a 2000 model with storage compartment with a sliding armrest in the center console as standard. It also got a SL2 10th Anniversary Edition (also known as the Silver Anniversary Edition), back then, it still got power from a 1.9 L I4 and the 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual transmissions.
