Both rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations are available. The base power source is a turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six engine with 379 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. S models receive an upgraded version of the engine that produces 443 hp and 390 lb-ft.
In terms of fuel economy, models equipped with the base engine and rear-wheel drive can return up to an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway.*
