How Does Toyota AWD and 4WD Work?

Toyota's all-wheel drive system was designed with a coupler in the rear differential that can push torque dynamically between the wheels. This system is able to monitor factors such as vehicle speed, steering speed and angle, throttle angle, and yaw rate, allowing the drivetrain to change the direction of power at a split-second's notice. This provides a proactive method of maintaining proper grip on the roads.

Four-wheel drive is similar, however, it's designed to offer maximum power and traction. 4WD isn't automatic; it is able to be turned on when necessary to send power to all four wheels. On the downside, 4WD is harder on your tires, can be worse for your fuel economy, and you must carefully watch your speed when it's engaged.
