The Oldsmobile Recon was a 1999 concept car built by Oldsmobile.[1] It was a compact crossover SUV that featured 5 doors, 5 seats, a dual panel panoramic sunroof and rear suicide doors.[2] Another unique feature was a reconfigurable instrument panel. The Recon was all-wheel-drive.[3] It also featured a 3.0L V6 engine.[4] The Recon never became a production model; the most likely reason is Oldsmobile's discontinuation in 2004. However, GM's first true compact SUV, the 2002 Saturn Vue does bear a slight resemblance to the Recon.
