The new Crossover is likely to be offered in a choice of six and eight cylinder gasoline engines for the US, and an AMG model will also be launched at the top of the range. According to some auto experts, the reason behind the development of this new crossover is the low costs of engineering and the high profit margins. Moreover, the crossover are more in demand in countries like US, Europe, China and others, while other vehicle types tend to suit the limited regions.
