Power is drawn from the same 5.7-liter V8 petrol engine, which delivers produces 383 hp and 546 Nm of torque. The engine is connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift technology.

For easier entry and exit, The Active Height Control (AHC) feature which lowers the body by about three inches when parked is offered as standard, same as the 7-seater model.
