Best Version to Get

With only a 1 mpg difference in fuel economy between the 2.0-liter turbo four cylinder and the 3.6-liter V6, either engine is a sound choice. We’d opt for the SE Trim with the Technology package which brings useful features such as adaptive cruise control, a power liftgate, and remote start.
