After comparing my Lionel 6-11210 Vision Line Challenger to the 1931250 new Vision Line Challenger #3977, I see no reason the articulated sound, un-sync drivers can't be added to the new Challengers.
I don't understand why Lionel chose to manufacture the new Challengers the way they did. It is not the first time they made a Vision Line Challenger.

You do realize none of the scale Lionel Challengers (nor any other of their scale articulated steamers) actually go in and out of sync with the front and rear engines, that it's electronic wizardry? Same with scale MTH and Sunset/3rd rail that I know of. Much prefer the artificial 4 chuffs going to 8 chuffs then back to 4 chuffs articulated chuffing than having it fixed at 4 chuffs.
