what is the difference between 4WD and AWD?
4wd is designed to go offroad. awd is designed for improved traction in poor weather and/or on surfaces like sand and gravel roads.
4 wheel is just that all four pulling, all wheel differentiates front to rear with 60% at front
It's all a lot of hardware that we love to tug along...which double the moving parts = double the failure...the whole thing is kinda silly....yes for drivin' on snow or ice...usable....deceptive if you've driven one....because the rate at which you can increase the speed is a different can of worms than the rate at which YOU CAN STOP...and crash into things...(it's alright...was just a snowbank)....with a sportscar under it~
