Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD
Toyota’s sophisticated Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD system can be found on higher-level trims of the new Highlander as well as the RAV4 compact crossover. While this system utilizes the single-speed transfer case at the front, it also features two dog clutches on the driveline to the rear wheels. These connections are either fully locked or fully open. When all-wheel drive is not needed, the driveline is completely disconnected, which is much more efficient than the previously-described system.
