Does it have adaptive suspension and a terrain response system?

It has promise as a zombie apocalypse light armored vehicle.
Has adaptive air suspension. Scroll through the images half way down this page, each one has captions for different features. Not shown on that page, the rear side panels (top part) fold up for side storage and the front opens up for front storage.


This video isn't the fastest version

TLDR; Tesla truck is heavy.
I watched the video but there are a bunch of VW Touareg videos doing the same thing to pickup trucks. I think weight has something to do with it but the AWD drive system is probably the reason it's able to do that.

It's just about getting the power down by the best means possible. Even those tug of wars don't mean much, a good AWD system will be able to gain the advantage and get the other truck to break it's traction first. Once the wheels are spinning there is no chance for the other truck to make up the difference especially if it's just RWD.

Stealth ready too..
That would be great! Though zombies are not known for their technical skill.

I always ask about off-road capability. I can no longer walk into remote fishing or hunting spots. I require a vehicle that can take me where my legs no longer can.

Which is the better buy overall?

1. 2017 VW Tiguan - Wolfsburg Edition - AWD - 45000 miles - $ 13750
2. 2018 VW Tiguan - 2.0T SE - FWD - 42000 miles - $ 17093
If you are in Ohio or anywhere that gets snow, don't even look for a SUV that is front wheel drive. No one will want it when you go to sell it.

I am in Cleveland and my friend has a Tiguan which he likes and after sitting on it, i am a fan too. I am looking for an SUV under 18k and these 2 caught my eye. So thought I would check it out. So the FWD is a strict NO, correct?

The AWD will just be better in the winter and the resale value will be higher. I'm always looking at cars online and the ones that aren't AWD but had the option to have it, are the ones that seem to stay on the market the longest. I once talked to a Lexus dealer a couple years after they started offering most of their lineup with AWD and he said they don't order cars for the lot that aren't AWD. If you want a non-AWD, they make you special order it.

Are they certified pre-owned?
