Stock high clearance and all wheel drive. Keeping with the times with Android Auto and Car Play Support. Card like driving dynamics.

Review

Don’t buy this if you are a boy-racer Nascar wannabe. Handling, specifically turn-in, is sluggish. Conversely, towing a 2000 pound camping trailer is safe and stable and the paddle shifters make long descents effortless. Long steep hills while trailering at altitude are handled best using cruise control and a big reduction in speed. X-Mode hill descent control on steep dirt roads is a surprisingly good and useful feature. Washboard roads are no problem, once the suspension has broken in and loosened up. The car is very quiet and comfortable. Adaptive cruise control is a really cool feature. Stereo sound quality is very detailed, even at loud volumes. Engine compartment layout is very clean with good attention to detail. Infotainment easy to use. Call quality is great. Homelink mirror placement interferes with forward visibility unless driver sits low. Air conditioning could be a little stronger - barely keeps up with Arizona summer. Will keep this car a long time, overall very pleased.
