Reviews, Pictures, Quotes, Research & Safety Information.
The Silhouette is available
in three flavors: a well-equipped GL, an uplevel GLS and the
top-of-the-line Premiere. GL models come with fold-flat second-row
captain's chairs and boast standard items such as air conditioning,
power windows and locks, cruise control, an interior air filter
and a rooftop luggage carrier. The GLS adds such niceties
as 16-inch aluminum wheels, traction control, a power passenger-side
door, power leather seats with a driver memory feature, an
overhead console with a trip computer, rear air vents and
steering wheel-mounted audio controls.
Move all the way up to the
Premiere, and you get nearly every goodie standard, including
a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, a reverse parking aid
sensor and heated seats. Among the few options for this luxury
model are third-row captain's chairs, a six-disc in-dash CD
changer, chrome wheels, a power driver-side sliding door and
the obligatory gold package.
All Silhouettes are powered
by a 185-horsepower 3.4-liter V6 that drives the front wheels
via an electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission.
Should you want the Versatrak all-wheel-drive system, it's
available on GLS and Premiere trim levels.
