Was reading an online article from the Automotive Industries trade journal, about the Titan vs the F150. In the article it stated that the Titan has two variations of a transfer case, one a conventional part time, and the other that engages the front axle only upon demand. Was anyone else aware that these two variants are available? I thought the Titan only has a conventional part time transfer case that splits the torque 50/50 to the rear and front.

Anyone know if the above is true, that there are two versions of the transfer case for the Titan???

okay outahere is my theory, not sure its right, but i believe the second version,if one, will be on the infinity model which has a lot of that hi tech engineering. if there was one im sure thats where it would be on the infinty platform suv. which also will have variable valve timing and titanium valves to sustain the 6700rpm redline. something the titan and armada lost because of cost issues. :cheers:

Titan only comes with one type of transfer case. Armada has a different unit and haven't heard about the QX-56

I did read that variable valve timing (VVT) will be coming to the Titan V8, to improve mileage, emissions, and torque.

what you maybe thinking of is if the titan came with locking hubs you would be able to keep the front axle from spinning where as automatic hubs you are allways in 4wd just the front axle moves at a slower speed

I've read a couple of reviews on the Infinity version of the Armada, and yes it will have an optional full time transfer case. Lots of other cool kind of high tech stuff, one of which was a rear-ward facing camera that displays on the GPS console.
