The 2018 Land Cruiser has a full-time 4WD system. Toyota offers the 2018 Highlander with an innovative AWD system. This system is also available in its hybrid version.
Is Toyota AWD full time?
Between Toyotas three All-Wheel Drive (AWD) systems and two 4-Wheel Drive (4WD) systems, things can get a bit confusing. While Toyota trucks utilize what is known as “part-time 4WD”, Land Cruiser and 4Runner Limited models run on what we call “full-time 4WD”.
How do I know if my Toyota Highlander is AWD?
Look underneath your vehicle while it is turned off for the axle shaft. The shaft simply looks like a large bar going from the front to rear axle. If you see an axle shaft running from the front to rear axles, you have an all-wheel drive vehicle.
