I love the styling. As a guy who owned a Jeep Wrangler for 171k miles, I can say that it’s ok but a dog of a motor. The transmission is always hunting at highway speeds with 35” tires. Even regeared it suffers up hills with in and out of OD. The fords I have owned have all been pretty much flawless. I love the ecoboost motors. It will have a modern interior that is still rugged. IFS in my f150 isn’t bad when u lift them. Obviously not a rock climbing champ but I don’t really do that anyway. So 99.999 percent of the time it will be better for me to have IFS. 10 speed autos are damn good transmissions. I just want a nice army green, grabber blue, or 1998 mustang cobra yellow and I will be sold. Still not sure on 2d or 4d. I got to get in one of each to see.
Been waiting for comparisons to the 4runner, everything I see only says it will compete with the Jeep.
I owned a TRD Pro 4Runner years back, sold it for various reasons. Why I didn’t love that car and think I want this one?
- engine (4runner is so slow)
- interior finish ( 45k for top of line 4runner doesn’t get you much amenities)
- Gas mileage (not expecting anything crazy, but I was getting 16 in the 4runner and it was soo slow)
I will probably will never take the roof off, so would like to see a solid roof to reduce noise, but I get why it’s not an option. Due to this, and obvious quality concerns, I will never own a FCA vehicle.
