Whether or not these are actually the real specifications is another story but this wouldn't be the first time a publication outted some interesting details.

Word on the street suggests that inital rumors about two powerplant options are true. There will be a 3.0-liter V6 producing an ample 410 horsepower and a 3.8-liter V8 making 530 horsepower.

The most critical element of these powertrains is that they both will benefit from bi-turbo technology.
