Xtrail 4WD Capabilities


Hi All

Does anyone have any info/links on this subject. How far can I push this vehicle in the dirt. I was a little hesitant on a sandy beach (ie spongy and deep track gutters) in Albany recently. Wasn't sure if I could keep up with the bigger 4WDs ie Toyotas, Pajeros, Fords all mostly V6s with better ground clearance ????

Thanks

Xtra

Xtra - there are quite a number of links on this topic already - do a search on 'sand' or 'beach' and I'm sure you will find the information you are looking for.

Xtra,

 You will be surprised by how far the exy will go, but obviously the higher vehicles equipped with low range and diff locks will go further. However in saying that, the light weight and great torque of the exy are a massive plus and should see you through most obstacles. There is only really one way to find out, Give It a Try.

Hey Xtra, my recommendation would be to read some of the trip reports and have a look at some of the pics. emoticon This will give you a good first hand account of what guys go through, over, in and some time around in the Exy.

We're not biased either, some of us even give an account of how they got stuck and recovered.

Yes, we have limitations but by all accounts it is a very capable car and the only real way to test it's abilities is to 'push it, get out there and have a go'. You may suprise even yourself at what YOU and the Car can do! emoticon
