4 x 4 trucks

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of buying a new truck but which, if any, of the new (2018 onwards) type can be driven permanently in 4 wheel drive?

I have had discoveries and freelanders and they are all permanent 4 wheel drive but I have heard that some of the trucks, in particular the Navara doesn't have the fancy diffs that allow them to be driven permanently in 4 wheel drive.

Although I won't be driving permanently in 4 x 4 I would prefer one that I could in case I forget!

 

Thanks

When I was looking for a new 4x4 I found that most auto engaged 4x4 when the going got a bit slippery but with the option to manually engage 4x4 by means of a button or dial, I don’t think any of these part time 4x4s vehicles are meant to be driven permanently on tarmac in 4 wheel drive.

Nearly all modern selectable 4x4 transmissions are designed for 4x4 on poor traction areas, and 2WD on high traction surfaces.

From memory I think the only trucks with permanent 4x4 are the VW Amarock and the L200 with supaselect 4wd the others are all part time 4x4 with separate transfer box.

Go for the l200 with super select . Can be run permanently in 4 wheel drive and have selectable diff lock and traction control . Very handy when towing on road . Now on my second one .
