The 3.3L engine will serve as the middle engine option, since it has more power than the base 3.8L V6, but less than the 420-hp 5.0L V8. To keep up with the new "sport" name, the G80 Sport also gets a sportier tuned 8-speed automatic, a revised suspension and upgraded brakes. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is optional.
