An optional ‘eAWD’ system will also be offered, providing a formidable jump up with 290 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque. Launch trim levels will include the anticipated 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT, while the slightly more aggressive 2RS and 3RS trim levels will be available as well.

There is also the choice of upgrading to a 17.7-inch infotainment screen, available on the 2LT and included as standard equipment on the 3LT and two RS trims.
