The infotainment system still sports a complicated and occasionally annoying two-screen setup, but there's a new 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 30-percent improvement in response time.

The base powertrain is a 3.5-liter V6 good for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, mated to the buyer's choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
