I am considering to buy a 9.5 AWD here in Sweden and I have both options a 2.0 and a 2.8. I am interested in reability and comsumption. Also is for towering so it is important towering capabilities.
Regards

The 2.0 version is little bit more reliable, but both are solid platforms. Can’t say I’d consider either version a good ”tow” vehicle...

The only thing I've heard is the if you get the AWD version, which I THINK is only available with the 2.8, that can be a nightmare if it goes out...and it's prone to failure. Otherwise I think both the 2.0 and the 2.8 are proven engines. They're GM engines, but they're both pretty good from what I understand. I've heard from others that the 2.0 feels more nimble because it's lighter.

Here in Sweden you can also get the AWD in 2.0. But what I have heard is that the e2.0 t is the old Saab engine, perhaps I am misstaken.
