Disappointed in sluggish acceleration 2015 LX AWD

The suspension is greatly improved from earlier models and the AWD with snow tires is excellent in snowy conditions. The sound from the speakers is poor, especially on start up on cold northern mornings. I haven't heard too much mentioned in the poor acceleration of the 2.4L engine but am seriously regretting stepping down from my 2011 V6 to the 2015 2.4. Acceleration at speeds between 60-70 kms/hr and over 100 kms/hr is dismal. Perhaps strictly city drivers at speeds below 60 kms/hr may find it perfectly acceptable but not this back road and highway driver. I can see no reason, other than to save a few thousand dollars, for not upgrading to the V6. Fuel economy is only nominally different between the two and the interior features seems austere on the base LX as compared to other models. 18" rims also helps to improve the external appearance of this vehicle, make it stand out from other similarly styled SUV's.
