I would easily go back to a 4wd chevy pickup truck. 2011+ crew cab with the 6.2 in it and max trailering package. I miss that truck it was bulletproof.

If it has a transfer case, it's not AWD folks.

I have made a BLATANTLY obvious attempt to point you to a TrailBlazer SS and you have not acknowledged it as your ultimate choice.

- SUV
- LS2
- Simple drivetrain even in AWD.

I stand corrected, it might have been a belt and not chain. But still, the majority of that cost is purely labor.

Another, a clean (if you can find one), '94 Bravada, L35 4.3L V6 (even with the dreaded CPI) and SmarTrak. Find one with the cool digital dash as a bonus.



I do miss my '94.
The way I'd do it is I would get a Vortec 4.3L (96+) swap in a CPI cam then put a carbed intake with a TBI adapter on top. EA Pro gave me an estimated 237hp with the CPI Cam+Vortecs.

2017 Honda Ridgeline. Has real, mechanical torque-vectoring rear axle that's super smart and overdrives the outside wheel; not just brake-actuated vectoring. It's more "intelligent" than other AWD systems that are really just front-back torque transfer and still drive like a FWD car.

I had one for a few days and the wife really loved it, but I think we're gonna go for a three-rower when we replace our Subaru hatch.

Why doesnt anything with auto 4x4 count? Doesnt auto 4x4 work just like AWD? These arent real big boy trucks with only 4x4 low and 4x4 high, these have auto 4x4.

Audis are absolute shit with respect to cost of ownership out of warranty. I'd love to have an A8L right now but they are such wretched turds that I can't bring myself to do it. That said, Audis are the best. The 2014+ A8L 4.0T can be had for $35,000ish, does 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds, just two tenths off the V10 M5.

And the back seats... my god the back seats...

This is the "crappy" one:



And then the nice one...
