The fact will be confirmed later, but it could be that this K9 K9 face game common with the G80. Specific body panels, but glazing and identical structure. This reduces costs in the face of reduced sales.
Whether the bodywork is partly common or not, the mechanics will be. With a 4-cylinder 2.0, a V8 3.8 and a V8 5.0 according to the markets. All-wheel drive will also be part of the package, as well as the entire range of driving aids.
