Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between AWD, 4WD, 2WD?

Really it is about which wheels move and provide power to move the vehicle. In a two wheel drive (2WD) system only two wheels power movement, either those on the front or the rear axel. In an All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system all four tires provide movement and the system is continually adjusting power between them. And 4WD - also known as 4X4 - systems also send power to all four wheels but traditionally distribute it equally and needed to be entered into 4X4 manually. Although modern 4X4 systems like Nissan Intelligent 4X4 adjusts automatically like an AWD system. [[1345]]
