They're not as awesome as marketing would have you believe. Auto mode in a lot of AWD systems takes too long to figure out terrain. The auto in the Sport is good enough that you usually don't need the different modes.So the GOAT modes are just there for show? Best to not touch the dial and let the computer do the work?
My reaction was pretty much the same. Nobody is saying the Baby Bronc is a 4Runner beater when it comes to offroading...but he didn't even give the BS a fighting chance. Starts up a steep icy incline in normal mode, comes to a dead stop in a foot of snow, and then switches modes and expects it to magically claw itself out. Even the 4Runner got stuck there without a run at it.With the test he was doing, short of better winter tires, he wasn't going to make it up there without momentum.
I think he was referring to Ford's off road suspension : H.O.S.S; high speed, off road , suspension, system. That's included on every model, the BL gets extra goodies added with it, like special front dampers, and reinforced rear strutsHi, did anybody else pick up on his comment on ‘Haas’ steering knuckles and other upgrades as a possible option ? Or is that somthing that comes with the extra off-road badlands suspension?
