IIRC, all the new JGC AWD systems are fully electronic, a la xdrive, with nothing "mechanical".

What about this RR. Note: I know nothing about RR's:

Edit: Two years older but with fewer miles. https://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/c...235556315.html

We seem to have quite a few of these down here (along with lots of other high-end cars).

Those are both RR Sports. I'm only interested in the full-sized. Similar blocky looks but very different drives. The southern one that is a touch old but looks good is this one:

They may be electronic, but they control mechanical clutches that form the center diff. Also different trims of JGC have different awd. Quadra drive II vs. Quadra trac II. I think QDII is better (and I'm sure most rental/lease spec JGC's don't have the rear diff).

Nope, I'm pretty certain it's all brake based now. Where's Lup when you need him.

Edit: looks like there is a way to get a rear ELSD via QDII.

I wonder if Seth MacFarlane has seen that vid. That could easily be made into an extended scene in Family Guy.
