TABLE TO BE ADDED SOON
Added in 2011 is the 3.0 V6 diesel available in either normal (240hp) or supercharged (275hp) flavors is our pick. Go with the one wearing 240hp since it is practical and not much intimidating for new drivers. The supercharged motor is fast but too much as a daily driver.
Among the gasoline engines, consider them if you prefer their smoothness. The 238hp 3.0 V6 is decent inside the city, underpowered for long drives. The 5.0 V8 that carries 385hp is has fluid acceleration at the expense of fuel economy. A supercharged version carrying the same displacement with 510hp is for the experienced as it is freaking speedy.
You get everything that is reserved for a king: leather seats, eight airbags, engine drag control, pedestrian contact sensing hood, front and rear sensors, front and rear fog lamps, six disc changer with 7 inch monitor, and halo mood lighting. Other models gain the Bower and Wilkins with Dolby sound system, heated and cooled vented front seats, and larger wheel sizes.
