on a 2012 RX350, when you set the 4 x 4 in lock position is it truly in 4 wheel drive or is it in AWD on demand.

Asked by Mar 21, 2017 at 09:54 PM about the 2012 Lexus RX 350 AWD

Question type: General

I want to take the vehicle on access roads in Sedona AZ that lead to trails
which can have some large rocks. I tried driving this road with a Ford Edge
AWD and it didn't work.

The Lexus is an AWD which should not be confused with 4 wheel drive. If you want to run the trails get a real 4x4 such as a pick up or a Wrangler.

we have a 2015 lexus rx350 i traded a 2014 tacoma(way better than any jeep). tried to go through some snow bank that the tacoma would have laughed at, and got stuck and yes i was in 4x4 lock thes vehicles with all wheel drive best stay ON road and out of snow banks if u want real deal 4x4 check out TACOMA.
