Chevrolet Announces Captiva Sport for U.S.

Industry News

Although the Saturn Vue is now long gone and Buick decided not to build it as a rebadged "Vuick," Chevrolet has just announced that they will begin selling the Captiva Sport in the U.S. for rental fleets. Basically, it's just a rebadged Opel Antara, which is what the Saturn Vue was. The crossover is built in Mexico and will be made specifically for fleet buyers who demand "a contemporary five-seat crossover with a comprehensive range of features and amenities."

It will come standard with air conditioning, power locks and windows, a six-speaker audio system, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Sounds like a rental already. Two engines will be available, beginning with the entry-level 2.4-liter Ecotec that produces 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. The optional engine is the 3.0-liter V6 with 264 hp and 222 lb-ft of torque. Both are mated to a six-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is also optional. If all goes according to plan, the Captiva Sport will begin appearing at airport car rental companies in the last part of 2011.
