Range-topping 9-5 Aero sedan will come with a 300 hp 2.8 liter, turbocharged V6. Prices will start at $49,990 (€37,285). A 2.0 liter turbo variant of the 9-5 for $40,000 (€29,835) will follow as a 2011 model.

Saab has announced U.S. pricing for the 2010 9-5 model range, due to go on sale this summer in that market.

Prices start at $49,990 MSRP for the range-topping 9-5 Aero Sedan with the 300 hp 2.8-liter V6 turbocharged engine.

A less pricey 2.0-liter turbo variant will follow later, as a 2011 model, for a MSRP of $40,000.

"The new 9-5 Sedan stays true to its unique Swedish heritage and Saab DNA," says Mike Colleran, President and COO of Saab Cars North America.

The 9-5 Aero sedan will come with a host of technologies meant to nab those premium brand customers now grown so accustomed to having lots of cutting-edge tech goodies in their vehicles, thanks to the likes of competitors such as BMW and Audi. For the 9-5, these include an adaptive chassis called DriveSense, Saab's XWD all-wheel drive system, USB connections for smart phone devices and an enhanced instrument panel, lit up like a jet cockpit, called Night Panel.

The 9-5 Aero sedan will hit dealer showrooms in the U.S. this July.
