Vs t5/t6 4motion, Haldex.







Three 4x4 bus generations, t3, t4, t5. Nothing  compares to a dual locker and "gelande" t3.

t5 has not front locker, nor "gelande", and uses a Haldex center differential instead of a Syncro vct.
The final result is obvious. 

Plus:

 Haldex t5 Denies...


Look at: 01:00 

No Gelande, (and front locker), no climb!

Many wondered: "why the t6 California, (Haldex),  is not imported to the U.S.A.?"

The answer is a very strange one. (In fact, I am wondering if ever, up to now, a such an answer is/was needed in a similar question).

Because the current model, three generations after, cannot compete to the legend!

Here are some facts:


"Once upon a time there was a VW car for the military and for the civilian service much better than
the Iltis and many other specialized army 4x4.

This car became a legend in the U.S.A., because it was extremely better on the road vs their 4x4, an impressive quality for the absolutely specialized 4x4 country.

On/off road superiority is a very difficult task.

Somewhere in the deep space, in the deep future a t series vw may be competitive to this.

And his, male for sure, name, as Tom Hanks called, "a spaceship Enterprise" , is Vanagon Syncro".

When you go to a VW dealer in order to buy something for your beloved Syncro, they say that there is not such a thing as a t3 Syncro model.

And they are right since the official name of the 1979 VW bus, (2wd), or  of the 1985 Syncro, (4wd), model is: t25.

But all the Syncronauts we know:


t25=t3



That is why t5/t6 cannot compete to the, highest, 4wd, named Syncro, with Gelande, dual lockers, auto central differential locking without hydraulics, (and maintenance), 50/50 weight ratio, symmetrical, (Mirage), transmission, Direct Drive rear differential, (no clutch), with unlimited, off road, load capabilities, Soft Start front differential, (never breaks), auto correction/auto regulation suspension, huge stealth stabilization spoiler, riding on the air feeling, (rear engine, forward control), i4/i5/v6/v8/w12 cheap engine modification, high snorkel, (~1.80 m), lowest IIHS of the 90's death rate, limited electronics and many others.


We have to accept it:  

in the year 2200 the t25 will be, (again), available, (?). 
(Counting 10 years for the introduction of a new t model as up to now).

2020=t7
2030=t8
2040=t9
2050=t10
2060=t11
2070=t12
2080=t13
2090=t14
2100=t15
2110=t16
2120=t17
2130=t18
2140=t19
2150=t20
2160=t21
2170=t22
2180=t23
2190=t24
2200=t25

The t3(=t25) Syncro is a 30 years old car, back to the future, from the next century, year 2200.

(Please don't worry. A 2018 Haldex t6 is readily available if you cannot wait for a t24 or a t25 from the next century).

t25: Really appreciated in California.

More comparisons in terms of dimensions, especially. 
(I have done my best for the poor picture quality).
