Early picture and information leaks were right on the mark about the basics for this sedan, which will offer a 184-hp, 2.4-liter ‘Tigershark’ four-cylinder engine or 295-hp, 3.6-liter ‘Pentastar’ V-6, along with a nine-speed automatic that’s controlled via steering-wheel paddles and and rotary shifter much like what’s already used in the Dodge Durango and Ram 1500.
That allows the interior to be opened up, with a low, long center console with useful storage and a lower pass-through compartment. Materials, trims, and upholsteries are top-notch, and as impressive (or better) as those used in the new Jeep Cherokee.
