  • There are two engines available. The standard option is a 2.7-Liter DOHC 16-Valve 4-Cylinder with VVT-i. Or opt for the available Atkinson-cycle 3.5L V6 with direct injection that has the perfect blend of power and efficiency.
  • Choose from two transmission options: the standard six-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i), or the available six-speed manual transmission.
  • Tow Package that includes Trailer-Sway Control, which applies brake pressure and manages engine torque to help maintain complete control of the trailer
