On the Road
The new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 feels extremely strong from a standstill with power delivered to all four wheels. Plenty of torque is always on tap with maximum torque delivered from 1960 to 4500 rpm. Shifts are quick and smooth with virtually no interruptions in power delivery when accelerating. The flexibility of the drivetrain and the great V8 sound from the exhaust create a dynamic driving experience. Sport mode delivers quicker shifts at higher rpm, retaining the lower gear longer for more responsiveness, while Comfort offers a smoother ride on rough roads but is not as responsive as Sport or Bentley modes.
