HID lights and cheaper.

Going to have to look at these a bit closer when I replace the Triton.

Wonder how hard ($$$) to cut into a ute

Wow, paddle shift.

I wonder if they fixed the steering rate or the anchor point locations.
Or improved engine noise, or gave the auto 400nm, or..

Sorry, but I just did a test drive this morning and was a little disappointed.

Yeah I think the 3000 kg towing capacity and option of the MMCS on the XLS makes it a bit more attractive.

Paddle shift on a 4x4 just isnt right... Is designed for performance cars not 4x4's.

My quick opinion-
Would not select the MMCS as an option, its a very sensible deletion as a standard fitment, perhaps MM has taken note of negative comments re the Challenger version--though reverse camera is good, dont need paddle shift either, not impressed with them on other cars I have driven, (Alfa 147, Statesman and Golf GTI) HID lights and power passenger seat would be allright as would the choice of beige leather, price reduction is attractive though and the 3000kg upgrade could attract a few buyers.

I think your right, the MMCS being an option on the XLS is a smart move. The 3000kg towing limit is a great move athough it might overshadow the Pajs towing ability. As for the paddles I am going to reserve my judgement until I get into one and try it.
Overall I think it is a good upgrade package.

I think it would really struggle with anything near 3000k
