    Yeah, that is all well and good, will it be 4×4 or just AWD? and will it be available in Canada with all or most of the options?

  • MistyGreen

    They’re calling it a 4×4 system, and it sounds like the optional 4×4 system has a low-speed ratio in the transfer case.

    Also, I think I heard it may not be able to lock the differentials, since it uses a “brake lock differential” or some such thing to try to mimic a locked differential. Sounds kinda cheap to me.

    Actually that might just be at high speeds, whereas you can still lock the diffs at low speed.. meh idk.
