What sets the Intelligent 4WD technology apart from other drivetrains is that it focuses more on extreme off-road situations and adventures. Some of these terrains may include mud, ruts, sand, snow, gravel, grass, and even dirt. The Intelligent 4WD transmits power and torque equally on all four wheels to increase the traction while driving. Another great advantage of 4WD is that you can control how much traction the vehicle uses with the flip of a switch. You can choose between a high or low 4WD setting, depending on the kind of roads you’re driving.
Whereas 4WD focuses on extreme off-road driving, the technology behind the Intelligent AWD is more geared towards everyday handling and traction on city roads and highways. The Intelligent AWD is always on because it’s the main drivetrain of the vehicle, which distributes power to both the front and rear axles before reaching each individual wheel. This is perfect for driving in the city because it’s versatile enough to be used for both the winter and the summer.
