Chevy AWD cars and 4WD vehicles combine leading power and capability with added on-road and off-road prowess. Chevrolet’s lineup includes lots of options to fit the bill.


AWD vs. 4WD: What’s the Difference?

The terms AWD and 4WD are often used interchangeably, but:

  • AWD systems use a front, rear, and center differential to send power to all four wheels.
  • 4WD vehicles have a drivetrain that employs two differentials and a transfer case to distribute power to all four wheels.

Chevy AWD cars are great for those who might do some light off-roading but never head too far off the beaten path. They get excellent traction through poor weather conditions, and they enjoy better mileage than 4WD vehicles. If you need to go into the backcountry or across any other challenging terrain, a Chevy 4WD car is what you need.
