A few years ago a mate got a Volvo XC90 for a weekend test drive. It has taken until now for me to find this video so here it is. Proof the XC90 is not a bad off-roader providing the going doesn’t get tough! I think it was in November 2003. I had a new Defender 90 as you can see and my brother had the Discovery. My brother did the editing so all credit to him then!

We continue the discussion of four strokes vs two strokes for off road, enduro style riding. This is part 3 of the series on this topic. Please go back and see our other videos for more information. More videos on this subject will follow soon.
The more that I’ve ridden and tested dirt bikes over the years, the more that one thing has been driven home for me. There is no wrong answer to this debate. Sure, the 2 strokes are more fun for me to ride most of the time. Having said that, the 4 strokes certainly have their advantages in certain situations like on a track (I don’t ride tracks, so it really doesn’t matter to me).
Most of the time in the past couple of years, I’ve had a 2 stroke and a 4 stroke sitting in my garage. The only time I really get tempted to ride my 4 strokes is when I’m heading out to the desert where the speeds are going to be higher and the whoops are going to be deep. If I know I’m heading to tight, technical singletrack… I’m going to take the 2 stroke for sure.
I’m a 2 stroke convert because I have ridden 4 strokes since I was a kid. Back in the day, as a child, the 2 strokes scared me since the power was pretty much all or nothing. The big bore 2 strokes are not like this at all. They have tons of low end and mid range power. They are great.

On this episode of Dirt Every Day presented by 4 Wheel Parts, Fred and Dave finally get the Mad Maxxis Off-Road Runner out to the desert to find out just how capable this one of a kind 4×4 is… and for some flat out fun. This car started out as a tired and rust ravaged 1973 Plymouth Road Runner and has been transformed into a 5.0 V8 Cummins Diesel powered four wheel drive off road monster! Dave Chappelle at Chappelle’s Kustoms designed and built the chassis and suspension parts on the Off-Road Runner in just over a month. Watch the build here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uoi95SBE2wM

Dacia Duster, a compact off-roader. The diesel versions of Dacia Duster emit from 135g of CO2/km in two-wheel drive form and from 145g of CO2/km for the 4×4 version. The 4×2 and 4×4 versions will be rolled out progressively from the end of March 2010 in Europe, Turkey, Africa and the Middle East.
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Nissan Xterra PRO-4X is a very off-road worthy traditional SUV. In other words it is not one of those new fangled crossovers. Instead it has a traditional body on frame design with a normally aspirated powerful V6 engine. And since we are testing the top of the line PRO-4X Xterra, we also get all of the good off-road bits like stiffer shocks and underbody protection. In another fun and informative TFLcar off-road review we take the 2013 Nissan Xterra PRO-4X up to the top of our off-road trail deep in t he Colorado Rocky Mountains. How does the 2013 Nissan Xterra PRO-4X do when the road turns rocky muddy and steep? Just watch this video to find out.

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander S-AWC – Off-Road Review. How does the Mitsubishi AWD system perform off road, in the snow, ice, mud, and gravel? The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander S-AWC shown features a 2.4L I4 gasoline engine producing 166 HP matched to a CVT transmission. Power can be sent to all four wheels through Mitsubishi’s Super-All Wheel Control. The front has an active differential with an electronically activated clutch-type limited slip differential, there’s an electronic center coupler to attach the rear axle, and the rear differential is open but takes advantage of clever braking for torque vectoring. Tested: Do the different AWD modes actually work?
Features include electronic power steering, automatic halogen headlights, fog lights, LED tail lights, 18 inch alloy wheels, one touch start/stop engine switch, hill start assist, and ABS with EBD and brake assist. This 2016 Outlander features the $5,250 SEL package adding navigation, collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, rain sensing wipers, remote power lift- gate, power glass sunroof, and a 710W Rockford Fosgate audio system with subwoofer.
MSRP As Tested: $33,095
