Ford has built a truck with all wheel drive to help with horse power and grip when riding on wet roads awesome right??
no... a great idea in a lab isnt always practical in real life mine has 89k on it and needs a new transmission i went to a shop the other day and asked a guy about price said i have a 2002 ford explorer he goes wait look over there see all those boxes those are transmissions for 2002 ford explorers.
you cannot build a full time 4 wheel drive vehicle that is this heavy and have only a 4.0 l v6 powerplant.
this would of been a great vehicle with better gas milage and no trannsmission issues had they only put in a button to let u disengage the 4 wheel drive.
dig the interior and radio
2 wd drive button stronger coil springs not stiffer just stronger mine broke after 2 months.
transmission dipstick less bean counters more old guys in the design room
