Luv'n our Transit

I'm glad to hear that Scotty's Transit has been so reliable. Our 2015 SMB with the Eco-boost has been great. I love the power and the mileage has been almost as good as my SUV. We don't have a lot of miles on it, but I have been in a couple situations I wished I had AWD. The only issues I've had, have been with the SMB built parts, (propane system). I think it would be good to have the AWD version not be too tall. My 2WD RB-50 with the PH can drive into my 8'-0" garage, (and the HOA likes that). If you're doing more hard-core 4-wheeling, I can see you need the clearance. For many of us, a bad dirt road is as bad as it gets. Driving in yesterday's Colorado Front-range blizzard, I was glad I wasn't in my Transit. AWD would have made it doable.

We are getting the exact same AWD system that the rest of the world has been enjoying for the last few years. This, and the new Ranger truly will be/are “World Cars”.
Also, since the 10 Speed automatic is the same one that Chevy is/will be using (they codeveloped it together), repairs, cost, and availability of parts should be excellent.
The Fiat Ducato also has an AWD system available elsewhere... let’s see if it makes its way over here...
