In our tests, we found the 4-cylinder to be more than up to the task of daily drives and some light-load hauling, but we think the V6 is the engine of choice here. It offers superior power without much penalty in fuel economy. Manual-transmission lovers can opt for a 5-speed on the 4-cylinder or 6-speed on the V6; a 5- and 6-speed automatic are optional, respectively.
