For that price, car customers will receive a three-row SUV featuring a more powerful and efficient 280 horsepower direct-injected 3.5-liter SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and returning an EPA-estimated fuel economy slash line of 19/27/22 mpg in city/highway/combined traffic. Upgrading to AWD will cost an additional $1,800, and drop the vehicle’s mileage down to 18/26/21 mpg.
