Upgraded heavy-duty hardware includes brakes, battery, a 220-amp alternator, water pump and engine oil cooler. A load-leveling suspension is standard. The SUV can be equipped with a number of options, including skid plates for all-wheel-drive models, back-up camera, trailer tow package, engine heater and a Uconnect system with mobile access.
