I have a Ford Escape 4X4 this is a full time awd. How do they perform on the beach at Hatteras? I have many years of experience of driving on the beach but always with a regular 4X4 with 4 wheel high and 4wheel low. I know some of these electronic awd' do not do well in the sand. If you use an Escape on the beach I'd like to hear from you. I don't want to buy a permit and find that the Escape does not perform well.
