My only fault with the drivetrain is the drive mode selector, which gives you access to a number of drive modes (Conserve, Normal, Normal Automatic 4 × 4, Excite, Deep Conditions, and Slippery), which return to a default Normal drive mode upon rebooting the lorry rather of leaving it in a mode like Normal 4 × 4, which will utilize the equipped all-wheel-drive system in an automatic mode.
