The Ascent uses Regular Unleaded with a maximum of 10% Ethanol per the owner's manual.

One thing that wasn't mentioned is that the trailer hitch hides behind the panel in the bumper when the ball is not in place so it looks nice and invisible when not towing.

Read one site that said it will run fine on regular, had a 2016 Kia Sorento , and it was regular with turbo. Now have a 17 Outback, and will probably upgrade to the Ascent, but want to see, and drive it first. So far the Outback with the boxer 4 does well for me, with 29 mpg in city, even dealer was impressed.
