There have been no official confirmation with the usage of the engine for this model, but there are many assumptions which have been offered till now. Maybe perhaps of the most likely one is the 3.5L V6 engine which has the capacity of 250 lb-ft and 250 hp. This means that the engine will also be using the remaining he 6-rate programmed transmission system and FWD from the previous car. A very positive fuel efficiency was also announced and it is believed that the vehicle will perform 28 mpg on the highway and 19mpg in the city.
