    I know, not hard enough for the expo crowd but I would find it usefull for the travelling we do.
    Hope they offer an AWD option. This article seems to think they will.

    Soon in manufacturer pre release language usually means possibly but not likely.
    Kinda like the diesel Wrangler Unicorn Edition in North America.

    Not sure where I read it (maybe here), but the post was about the lack of a 4wd/AWD van option in the US being about liability and law suits. Is that what the general consensus is?
