The hood is likely to be angled upwards to create extra room for the large engine. We expect that the new SUV will have strong, robust A, B, C and D-pillars. It is also quite likely to be highly sculpted along its side panels. Seeing as the SUV is expected to ride on 22-inch wheels, it will have high ground clearance. As such, it will be equipped with an automated side step.
