INTELLIGENT ALL-WHEEL DRIVE

Power Where You Need It

Intelligent AWD instantly adapts to changing conditions. Wheelspin, throttle, and speed are monitored and up to 50% of the available power can be sent to the rear wheels for better traction. When AWD isn’t needed, the front wheels get 100% of the power for more responsive road performance.
