Yes, there’s an updated model coming our way soon, but this one still gets the job done with features and amenities, kicks out 520 horses from its 4.0L twin-turbo V8, and looks the business. Especially in this shade of Kingfisher Blue.

In the meantime, drop any questions you have in the comments below, and I’ll see about finding answers.

Honestly, I want to know all the normal stuff I want to know about a car, because why not treat it like an actual daily driver?

So: How many bags of mulch fit in the trunk?
Can I reach the toddler in the car seat behind me to hand them the thing they just dropped on the floor and are now sreaming at the top of their lungs about?
How hard is it to mount a hitch rack for my bikes?
How does it handle commuting traffic- you know, boring stop and go, never getting over 30 mph.
How does it handle long boring freeway drives- say, I-65 in northern Indiana or say I-80 in Nebraska?
Going to lunch with co-workers- how many fit in it?
How hard is it to park when I go to that hip part of town with crappy parking?
Is it iPhone compatible? Android?
