3.6-liter DOHC engine

3.6-liter DOHC aluminum-alloy 24-valve 6-cylinder horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER® engine with Dual Active Valve Control System (DAVCS). Low-friction pistons. Iridium spark plugs.
 

Power: 256 hp @ 6,000 rpm

 

Torque: 247 lb-ft @ 4,400 rpm

 

5-speed transmission

5-speed adaptive electronic automatic transmission with manual shift control
 

STABILITY AND TRACTION

Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)

Standard VDC electronic stability control utilizes sensors which constantly monitor wheel speed, steering angle, brake pressure, vehicle yaw rate and lateral g-forces. If VDC detects a difference between the driver's intended path and the one the vehicle is actually taking, VDC applies braking power and/or reduces engine torque to help correct vehicle path.
 

Traction Control System (TCS)

VDC also incorporates an all-wheel, all-speed TCS which senses a loss of traction and applies braking force to the slipping wheel or wheels as necessary to maintain vehicle motion.
