2015 Highlander

Asked by May 30, 2015 at 07:05 AM about the 2015 Toyota Highlander Limited

Question type: Car Customization

I am looking at a 2015 2FWD highlander that the dealer tells me goes to AWD when the
computer senses it needs to. I live in the Northeast. Does this perform as good as a AWD
in snow and rain?

Yes, the SUV runs in FWD mode to save on gas, and when wheel slippage is detected via the ABS system, it automatically puts the power to the wheel that is spinning, so no driver input. Excellent system in wet and snowy weather.

Hey Tom I think you meant to say that it puts power to the wheels that are not slipping.

You say it is AWD then you ask is it as good as AWD- yes it IS AWD- but this is a misnomer because not all 4 wheels are "driving"- unless a vehicle has locking differentials, only one wheel on the front and one wheel on the rear will "drive"- so, it will not be "magic" in snow and ice- better than one wheel, tho- and of course, those 4 small tire traction patches are the same as any car under braking-
