The chart above shows the stats for each of the engine types. These numbers hold true for each of the trim levels that has that specific engine. For example, both the Stinger 2.0L and the Premium trim levels have the stats in the far-right column, because both of those trim levels have a 4-cylinder engine. The starting MSRP refers to the most basic model that has each engine, and from there the price rises.

Although we have mainly focused on differences, there are also similarities between the engine types. All five trim levels have Double Overhead Camshafts (DOHC) with 4-valves per cylinder, Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT), Gasline Direct Injection (GDI), and Idle Stop and GO (ISG). All of them also feature a ten to one compression ratio for utmost efficiency. As far as the drivetrain goes, all five trims have an 8-Speed Automatic Transmission, and All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Electronically Controlled Transfer case is available, but not standard on all five.
