Can somone tell me what years the 9 3 Aero came with the 2.0. Was it only 10 and 11 and were they limited to AWD or did they also come with just FWD. I love the idea of a 2.0 Aero with the 04 Turbo so a little background would be helpful.
Thanks

Basically, if it was a GM Aero with the new nose (2008 & 2009), it would have been the (nominal), 255 six.

If it was a GM Aero with XWD for 08/09 after the intro of the Turbo X, it would have the 280 hp engine. This was a "free option" on the 08/09 XWD Aeros but in theory you could have ordered a 255 .. but as one "insider" said, who would?

In 2009, XWD could also be had with the 2.0 car that was pretty base as my wife has one.

Anything of the "Victor & Vladimir" era of 2010 was a 2.0 here in the US; perhaps the Euro versions came in diesel?

Wiki is a pretty good source for this stuff but the Aero is listed as a "6" for 2005 but I believe this is only for the late production runs (really 06's), for that year.
