All-Wheel Drive Technology for Every Lifestyle

No two drivers have the same needs and interests, so Toyota has designed several different AWD systems for their vehicles. Take a moment to explore the systems you'll find in the vehicles listed above:

  • Dynamic Torque Control All-Wheel Drive is optional across all trim levels of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and the 2019 Toyota Highlander.
  • If you choose either the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid or the 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, you'll receive Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive with Intelligence as a standard feature.
  • All-Wheel Drive with Active Torque Control is available on the 2019 Toyota Sienna, in the LE trim level and up! At the time of this writing, the Sienna remains the only AWD vehicle in its class.

AWD vs. 4WD: What's the Difference?

If you really want a vehicle that can take you anywhere, you'll want to consider the advantages of all-wheel drive vs. four-wheel drive. Although these two types of drivetrains have a lot in common, drivers who spend a lot of time off the beaten path tend to prefer the performance of 4WD systems. Where AWD is always 'active,' adjusting your traction whenever necessary, 4WD is generally a button-activated setting that can be turned on when you're crossing difficult terrain out past Lincolnwood.

The following Toyota trucks and SUVs can be equipped with 4WD:

  • Toyota Land Cruiser
  • Toyota 4Runner
  • Toyota Sequoia
  • Toyota Tacoma
  • Toyota Tundra
