The Pro features vinyl upholstery and a smaller infotainment screen than the high-end models, and also deletes the full-width lightbar from the front of the vehicle.

It still has standard all-wheel-drive with 426 hp and a range of 230 miles per charge, plus a base tow rating of 5,000 pounds, which can be bumped up to 7,700 pounds with an optional Max Trailer Towing package.
