Default What type of 4x4 in Scorpio?

If going for 4x2, the Innova is a better bet because its more reliable than both safari and Scorpio.
If going for 4x4, then safari makes more sense as it comes with a LSD, which can be a boon in tricky situations
The 4X4 is made to order - about 2 months waiting period for delivery.
And AFAIK, LSD is standard on Scorpio too.

I doubt, coz I once saw a video of a scorpio 4x4 with one wheel spinning. You have a scorpio 4x4 right?
Could you check in the manual. It will be clearly specified.

Hmm, any more details about the 4x4 system of scorpio Anshuman?
What exactly is automatically locking hub?

Obvious explanation would be it engages and disengages as you switch in and out of 4WD. You don't have to get down in muck to do that manually. But you still have to move backward or forward I suppose.

I have owned several vehicles with auto locking hubs that do not have any manual option. These are common in N.America on small 4x4 pickup trucks. Works good. No Back and Forward necessary.

Ok, this means that the front two wheels will always spin together.
So that means unless you have 3 wheels out of action, the SUV will move ahead, right?

Sounds logical.
Strangely, M&M do not mention the kind of diffs used - neither in the Manual, nor on the website.
For engaging 4WD, there is no need to stop - it is possible on the fly. And there is no need to depress the clutch either, for engaging/disengaging 4WD HIGH.
For 4WD LOW, vehicle should be brought to a standstill AND the clutch pedal should be depressed.

To dis-engage the 'automatic' front hubs, the car needs to be reversed for about one metre distance.

Seeing a wheel spinning on a 4WD does not convey anything about the circumstances - was the wheel on the other side (which you could not see) also spinning? Was the vehicle in 4WD mode at that point?

The Manual does not say anything about the differentials at all! Nor does the website.

It was a youtube video with front wheel spinning. It was an older model maybe?
I wonder why companies in India are so tight lipped about what kind of 4x4 sits in their cars.
Arka has given the exact information.
Was Scorpio 4x4 always with this kind of config?

Actually the video has a white scorpio and you can just see the right side.
The front wheel is spinning, and you can't see the other side.
