Toyota all-wheel drive (AWD) provides power from the engine to all four wheels, giving Miami drivers versatility and enhanced safety on the road.

About Toyota AWD with Dynamic Torque Control

Like many other all-wheel drive systems, Toyota AWD is able to send power to the front wheels as well as the back wheels via a rear differential. On Toyota models, this includes the ability to send up to 100% of power to the front wheels at any time and up to 50% of power to the rear wheels when it’s needed.

In addition to this standard mechanical setup, the Toyota AWD system also comes with Dynamic Torque Control, which is able to send specific amounts of power to the front or rear wheels to maximize performance and efficiency by reading a variety of conditions through a state-of-the-art sensor system. The parameters read by this system include:

  • Vehicle speed
  • Steering maneuvers
  • Throttle
  • Yaw rate
  • Road conditions
