The multiple powertrain options available include the 250-hp base Momentum T5 which created from a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder direct-injected turbocharged engine coupled with an 8-speed Geartronic™ automatic transmission and a front-wheel drivetrain. The sporty R-Design T6 is equipped with a turbocharged and supercharged engine with all-wheel drive to produce 316-hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the Inscription T8 is powered with both a gas engine and electric motors utilizing an all-wheel drivetrain and generating 400-hp.
