In general AWD, there are no electronic buttons or mechanical levers to engage from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive all 4 wheels are powered by the transmission/transaxle and/or transfer case usually beneficial on bad weather or roads with poor traction 4WD, there are either electronic buttons or mechanical lever to engage into 4 wheel drive usually has a selector for 4WD Low Range for handling tough or steep terrains With any auto manufacturer there is alway an exception: i.e. Jeep with Quadra Trac has three mechanical lever postion: 4WD HI, Neutral, 4WD LO i.e. some auto maker/s, not sure which, has a button to engage center differential
