The truth behind the badge
We see all-wheel drive (AWD) badges on cars, crossovers, and SUVs all of the time. But what does that badge mean? The answer, as it turns out, varies by automaker and even by model. We've rounded up a few of the more common AWD configurations and a few of our favorite uncommon setups to help you figure out the truth behind the badge.
Consider this more of a primer than an all-inclusive roundup, as we've mostly steered clear of the world of 4x4, 4WD, manual drive select, and locking center differentials that populate the world of off-roading and truck transmissions.
