2016 4dr Sedan 300-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable CVT FWD
The zero gravity seats are nightmare. The second worst I have encountered and I have driven more than 30 cars. Eight way adjustable yet there is no way to town down the big lumbra support. It feels like a drill making holes in your back The engine suspension and transmission are lovely, nevertheless I am thnking of getting rid of the car due to the seats. Even Klingons would not be able to tolerate them for long.
