While you may have heard the two terms used interchangeably, there are a number of key differences between how all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive systems operate. AWD vehicles are equipped with a drivetrain that usually includes a front, rear, and center differential that directs power to all four wheels of a vehicle. On the other hand, 4WD models are usually equipped with a front and rear differential to send power to all four wheels. Although systems can certainly vary by manufacturer, a good way to remember the difference between them is that AWD is often always active while 4WD requires the driver to select when all four wheels are being powered.
