On the liftgate, it'll say 4x4 if it is. If it says nothing, then most likely it's 2WD. Another thing to remember is the base Laredo came with All Wheel Drive, but still had the "4x4" badge on the rear liftgate. The way to tell then is to look for the "Trail Rated" badge on the left fender. If it has one, then it's a real 4WD, not just AWD. The difference being AWD has no user controls, and no low range...It's just a simple "idiot-proof" system that's sort of like the Quadra-Trac system, but minus the low range mode.
