I just read this rumour on a Swedish car site, they say that the Buick has increased sales by 30% lately, and it's a possibility that it might be badged and sold as a Saab in US, in addition to the Buick. As they add, it already looks a bit Saab-ish in the Buick version.

Actually, I believe it ain't so.
The Saab SUV was supposed to be based on the upcoming Cadillac SRX, but Saab didn't want to build it. When it bombed in customer clinics (as did the SRX), they begged Bob Lutz to euthanize it - and that he did. The Cadillac will go into produciton only because the Cadillac people begged for the exact opposite thing - production despite poor testing results.
The Rendezvous is already two years old and in platform years, that's not exactly new. The likelihood of a Saab version of that car is minimal.

Actually, the Rendezvous platform is even older--remember, underneath it's just the GM minivan platform.
The SAAB SUV is dead. I didn't know the new Cadillac tested poorly in focus groups, though. What about it didn't they like?
