so uh, what about a non pushrod V8? or 1 tons without portals....?Without a doubt. There are lots of clever touches throughout the vehicle that make it perfect for adventure. But adventure means different things to different people. Thankfully, Ford has structured the trims and options such that people can get what they want, within reason. This vehicle still has to make money and cater to the masses, after all. But I think even the enthusiasts will be satisfied with what's being offered, except for the select few who won't be satisfied unless it has a pushrod V8, 4-speed manual, manual hubs, 1 ton portal axles, etc., etc. I think you get my point.
