The SUV will come in two engine trims. The first will be the 2.4 liter 4 cylinder DOCH engine that will be capable of about 173 horses and up to 166 pounds of torque per foot which will be quite impressive. This particular engine will run on regular gas. The second option will be the more powerful 3.6 liter V6 DOHC engine that will be capable of up to 283 horses and 260 pounds of torque. Other than the engine specs, the cross over will also have more efficient fuel consumption clocking in at 19mpg in the city and about 26mpg on the highway which is quite economical for a car of the such productive performance especially considering that it is capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in just 7.1 seconds. The powertrain will be linked to a 4 speed automatic transmission with rumors stating that there will be 6 speed variants and a manual option as well which would make it even better.
