* What’s the Difference Between Toyota AWD and 4WD? *
At its core, the difference between all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive is when the system is running:
All-wheel drive is always on, but tends to push the power primarily toward the front wheels as long as conditions are adequate; when rear wheels or one specific wheel needs extra support, the system can route torque to any one or two wheels, or all four wheels as necessary.
Four-wheel drive usually needs to be turned on, and otherwise drives and feels like a front-wheel or rear-wheel-drive vehicle. 4WD most often sends equal power to all four wheels, which makes it ideal for off-road driving or travel in deep snow, isn’t ideal for driving on pavement.
