Thanks, good video of the manual. I missed the big 12” screen, glad I’m getting the High.

So some things I took from this that we have known but little video evidence:

1. Real sound of 2.3L under all types of load. While it can be a little pitchy I thought it did well to sound more hum and less airy.

2. I would probably never use trail turn due to the horrible whine I've heard in all the other videos once he showed how to enable front locker and keep rear open. While not as tight of a turn it still looked like a small turn radius.

3. The video front the top crossbar really helped to show how large the terrain change was. All week we heard the other forum members say the videos didn't do justice and now we see why. The rock crawl following the black truck was easily an 8 ft climb at over 50° yet it didn't slow down one bit.

The most impressive thing about all these videos is that Ford actually allowed this to happen. Think about the risk of running these vehicles constantly over multiple days and abusing them with customers in them and filming. One breakdown, no matter how minor, would be a huge deal.

That shows some serious confidence in the product.

Especially considering they are all pre-production models.

May be my favorite so far. Love the part where they follow a super modded truck on 40” SS making all kinds of noise.... then quietly make it up with no fuss. Glad I went with the manual 2.3! Both set ups have their advantages, but 2.3 for me all day. Thanks for posting!
