Toyota Goes All-In on All-Wheel Drive

Dynamic Torque Control AWD
Perhaps the simplest of all the all-wheel-drive systems the automaker offers, Toyota uses Dynamic Torque Control AWD in the new Camry AWD, Avalon AWD and the lower trims of the RAV4. Toyota has been using the system for many years; it features a single-speed transfer case that drives the front wheels and also sends power down a driveshaft to the rear wheels. When AWD is needed, an electromagnetic coupler integrated into the rear differential engages to provide torque to the rear wheels.
