Yeah, do people in other countries get cooler stuff in their Subes? Mechanically or otherwise, what sets foreign XTs apart from the American ones, besides the name?

I heard a rumor that European turbo XT's were available with FT4WD Dual Range transmissions. Also, the turbo was carried on until the end of XT production in Europe.

They had more power and just about all of them had factory oil coolers.

Hmmm, I wonder how this was accomplished...was anything within the engine different or were the engine "accessories" more capable? Also, I wonder if anything in the interior was obviously different.

The XTs in europe had 136 hp without cat and 120 hp with cat. They were also available with a Full Time 4WD Dual Range transmission with diff lock.

We only had the XT Turbo, no XT N/A or XT6. The early XTs had the push button 4WD, but from 1987 to 1989 they had the FT4WD Dual Range and also a Full Time 4WD Automatik Transmission.

We do have them here, they just arn't called XTs. Most of them i have seen in nz are called Vortex, altough i have seen the occasional Alcyone.
