Four Powertrain Lineup

Available All-Wheel Drive with AWD Disconnect

Designed to help save fuel, available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Disconnect lets you disconnect the rear driveline when the system detects AWD is not needed. This allows only the front wheels to propel the vehicle, therefore reducing drag and the overall energy demands of the drivetrain.
