Basic Guide to AWD vs. 4WD


Your car handles differently given its surroundings and how it's built. Some cars come with a little extra to help you navigate anything the roads might throw your way. That's where all-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive come in.

What is AWD?

All-wheel drive is an automatic system in your car that powers all four wheels at once. It's on all the time and allows you to smoothly accelerate and handle your car in difficult situations such as rain and snow.

What is 4WD?

Four-wheel drive is a manual system in your car that uses a transfer case to power your wheels. It allows the driver to manually shift it on when it's time for use, such as situations where you've gone off on a dirt road, or have gone through rougher terrain.
