Quigley will be better off-road, no question. Low range and 2 inch lift make a difference, though you are still constrained by the rear shock mounts and differential clearance. Quigley is also very expensive and kind of a hassle to buy unless you are lucky enough to find a used one or dealer stock.Quigley or 2020 Ford Transit AWD?
That's my question. Which would be better off road or are they pretty much the same.
Great info and pics! It reinforces our decision to go with the Quigley.Quigley, without hesitation. I purchased our Quigley after the 2020 AWD was announced. Ford make it clear that its a road focused wet/snow AWD, with a low step-in height (as in low ground clearance.
Pretty sure Quigley no longer offer this service. To get a Quigley system you have to order through a Dealer and it is shipped to Quigley. After they complete the modifications they drop ship it to your dealer for you to pick up. They don't do customer delivery orders on used vans or even new owner purchased vans.Yea I just buy the Transit then take it into Quigley for conversion if I was going that route
This decision by Quigley and the lower 2019 prices makes this decision harder. I priced the 2020 AWD using this site: https://www.autoblog.com/buy/2020-Ford-Transit_250+Cargo-Base__All_wheel_Drive_High_Roof_Van_147.6_in._WB/Quigley has changed their operations so that NOW you can go post-title with your Transit. Some of their requirements are you have to take your Transit to Quigley in PA for inspection and they make the decision on whether they would convert to 4X4 conversion or not. Mostly has to do with how old the Transit is and how many miles you have on the vehicle.
Unfortunately, this will get old very fast.conversion with a lift and big ole bumper and the testosterone flows and weakens my decision making skills . . .
From what I've seen the AWD Transit does exactly this. In fact the transit can transfer 100% of torque to the front wheels while I have heard the Sprinter ("real 4x4") can only transfer 60% or so.This is a naive question because I know nothing about mechanics and electronics:
Is it theoretically possible to transform a Ford Transit 2020 AWD into a real 4x4, this vehicle being able to go from one mode to another by flipping a lever and a switch? Thus, the driver could use it in AWD mode on paved roads, and in 4x4 mode on bad roads in dirt, sand, etc.
