Of course, that’s pretty spendy.

The military always has surplus trucks and tactical vehicles of all sorts up for auction:

As someone who has owned both a new Ford and a new-ish German car in the last 8 years, the Teutonic car is much nicer in every way but waaaaaay less reliable and more expensive to fix. German cars from all 3 major automakers have had well-known reliability issues over the past 10-15 years. American cars have actually gotten better as far as reliability goes.

It looks like junk. Trust ford engineering over mercedes engineering? I don't think so. Until Tesla releases a 4x4 van (come on Elon!) I'm holding onto my 4x4 sprinter dirtbagmobile, stealing girlfriends and causing fits of jealousy wherever I climb.

I'm sure there's plenty of "girls" interested in your van, however the "women" are turning away.

Wow. The Tradinator knows what the women's deepest desires!

I don't think that the Ford comes with 4 Low. Apples to oranges.

Good point. AWD and 4WD are different, so I think you’re right on this. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
