Depending on the trim level, you can pick from three capable engines. The available 2.0-liter EcoBoost delivers 245 horsepower so you can tow up to 3,500 lbs. with its mated Class II Trailer Tow Package. There’s also the intake Variable Cam Timing of the 165-horsepower 2.5-liter inline-4 and the 1.5-liter EcoBoost® with Auto Stop/Start. This feature saves gas by shutting down the engine at stops and restarting it when you’re ready to go. Fuel efficiency reaches an EPA-estimated 30 MPG on the highway and 23 MPG in the city using the 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift®, which provides the feel of a manual.
When you have to deal with winter snow or less-than-certain surfaces, the available Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive continuously reads road and driving conditions. When needed, it then transfers torque from the front to the rear wheels so you gain maximum traction and handling.
Inside, spacious seating for five easily becomes cargo capacity for up to 68 cubic feet when you fold down the 60/40 split rear seatbacks. If you have the special key fob with you, you’ll load the rear more easily by kicking under the bumper to open the hands-free liftgate. The height of the hatch adjusts so you can reach it more easily. Intelligent Access lets you touch the door handle to unlock. When you sit inside and step on the brake, you can run the engine by pressing the Start Engine button.
