What Is Nissan Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive & How Does It Work?

Available Nissan Intelligent AWD helps you stay in control at all times by sending power to the wheels that need it most to help maintain optimal traction. This system can respond to slippery conditions in less time than it takes for you to blink your eyes, so you can trust that it always has your back. No matter what the roads look like or how quickly the conditions change, the Intelligent AWD system is ready to respond and keep you in control.

FAQs About AWD vs. 4WD

  • Should I Choose AWD or 4WD?: Both systems offer increased traction and control in a variety of conditions, but they do have their differences. All-wheel drive always stays active and provides increased control in all conditions, while 4WD engages only when you need it and provides increased control for more extreme driving conditions. Both have the capability to send power to all four vehicle wheels, though, in comparison to FWD or RWD.
  • Why Buy a 4WD or AWD Vehicle vs. a FWD or RWD Vehicle?: Some drivers are fine with 2WD vehicles, especially if they live in warmer climates. But for New England drivers here in Middlebury like you who have to take on snowy winters, AWD and 4WD vehicles are a more optimal choice. They provide better traction and control than 2WD models and can help keep your car from slipping on rough or patchy roads so you can enjoy a safer ride.
