it does have two 60kw electrical motors that need to be cooled to make up for it

it also comes with the heavy duty tow package ( for the cooling only since the max is 6200 pounds for 2wd )
Speaking of towing, we pulled a uhaul 4x8 with about 800 lbs in it, cabin filled to the bursting point, along with two bicycles mounted on the roof at up to 85mph cruising and the trans never went over 171F. So yes, the cooling is quite good!
