Add to all of this the fact that the FX4 comes with its own decal features, and offers a GVWR of up to 3,855 kg (8,500 lb) and you can bet that you’ve got the presence that you’re after here, there and everywhere you go.

The FX4-designated models come with hill descent control, which, when activated, applies additional pressure to the brakes as needed. This means that you can get around at a controlled descent up to 32 kilometres per hour. The skid plates, mentioned earlier, cover up the fuel tank, transfer case, and front differentials, enabling you to navigate on uncertain terrain without concerning yourself with damage.
