The 2013 models are the one with the upgraded 3.8 346hp engine right? Good thing you got the V6, the 4 bangers with 220hp are a joke.

yeah 3.8 348 hp. It would take a 2.0 sky, easily. I beat a sky with trifecta also with it.

peace out.

The HP to weight is probably worse than the Sky though.
Still, that's a good powerplant.

Yea, im aware that they finally decided to put the 274hp from the Sonata and Optima. I had mentioned this years ago when i was in Hawaii on a forum. The 220 was a great car for a certain niche. Im curious to see the interior improvement on the 274 option. Jeb you should of gotten the Velosor Raptor Turbo.
