Massapequa Park, New York (PRWEB) February 20, 2014
Given all the snow our area has received this winter Lexus of Massapequa, one of the Queens Lexus dealers, thought it might be a good time to discuss some of the differences between All-Weather Drive and Four-Wheel Drive.
FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE (Lexus GX/ Lexus LX)
4WD is only activated when the driver engages it, through the flip of a switch or secondary lever. Once engaged, power goes from the transmission to the transfer case where it is split between the front and rear axles. These systems have a front and rear differential as well as a dedicated transfer case.
Note: In Lexus 4WD models the 4WD system is on all the time (full-time). They are constantly providing traction to all 4 wheels and do not need driver intervention in bad weather, unless using 4LO.
ALL-WEATHER DRIVE (Lexus IS/Lexus GS/Lexus LS/Lexus RX)
These systems operate differently depending on manufacturer. In most cases AWD is on all the time, no need for driver intervention. There is a front and rear differential and a center differential (or other power-splitting device). There are sensors and a computer (ECU) that determine which wheel(s) need power at any given time.
