The 5.5L supercharged 24-valve V8 engine is extremely powerful as can be expected of an engine with 493 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque.

A well-chosen ASH leather color scheme is found in the seating, carpets and trim work which looks great with the silver exterior. The leather seats have also been upgraded and are both heated and cooled to keep you comfortable in chilly or warm weather. By the way, that was a $1,200 upgrade!

To help your car stay free from dings and dents, the parking sensors will be of great service for aid and alerts as you park so you don't bump into hard-to-see objects.
