1 Answer


An easy way to tell is to look at the back under the vehicle. If you have a drive axle connected to those wheels and the front wheels you have AWD. If not you have the standard FWD. Another way to tell is to look under the food and if the engine is running the length of the vehicle you have AWD. If it is parallel to your front bumper (short ways) you have FWD. I hope this helps.
