Sorry if it has come up before, but is there any word about the next generation of 9-5? 2004 was originally supposed to be the launch year, but since I've heard/seen nothing, I assume they are focused on the 9-2 and possibly the SUV right now.

Anybody have anything new?

Same old 9-5 for MY2004.

Here's the press release on changes for the '04 model (minor changes, really):

I would expect to see the all new 9-5 for MY2005 or 2006.

Thanks for that info!

I want to see what the new body treatments on the Aero look like- any pix out there? I wonder if it will look like a Hirsch.

9-2 to be a hatchback- good to see them at least giving a nod to the roots.

Looks like they dumped the V6 on the 9-5 as well. Very interesting.....

The V6 has been dead for a while.
