The X adds Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac P255/65R17 all-terrain tires and all-weather building liners to All Terrain content, that includes:

A revoke engine speed has dual benefits: It can revoke fuel expenditure to raise potency and it reduces engine sound for a quieter cabin.

The new powertrain supports a 3,175 kilogram (7,000 lbs)max trailering rating that is second in a shred usually to a Canyon’s accessible 2.8L Duramax diesel, that is rated during 7,700 pounds.
