I have no record of a diesel 4x4 ST in the US. Elsewhere in the world (Australia?), might be. Or....asavage wrote:Starting with the pic: isn't that a 4WD ST? Not offered with a diesel in the US. Was it offered anywhere?
Hey ... it's Car & Driver magazine! I don't trust Consumer Reports either.asavage wrote:Comparing the 720/SD22 with a VW "pickup" is sure unfair. The VW has no frame and is considerably lighter than the 720. And it has a smaller displacement engine with ~15 fewer HP.
