A hefty amount of torque starts flowing from just 1600 rpm and reaches to its peak of 273lb-ft when the vehicle reaches 4500 rpm. This is an impressive power to torque ratio. All this power then transferred to seven speed automatic transmission which takes only 5.7 seconds to attain the benchmark speed of 62 miles per hour. You can say under six seconds to reach 62 mph.
