Under the hood of this ride is where things, really, are going to get very interesting. Even as we wait for the company to give us official information on the car’s engine, the industry has already spoken. First, there is going to be a 3.5-liter V6 engine that can generate up to 295 hp. This unit is less the same with the one we saw on the last model.

The second engine is likely to be paired with half dozen speed transmission inside the front wheel drive or an 8-speed transmission from the 4-wheel drive.

As for the price, the car could come with a price tag of around $43,000. Looking at that price, this car is certainly going to be much cheaper than its major rivals like the 2017 BMX X3 and the latest Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
