How Does the 2020 Toyota Camry AWD System Work?

To combat winter weather and driving conditions in Maine, the 2020 Toyota Camry will employ an innovative and intelligent Dynamic Torque Control AWD system that made its debut in the Toyota RAV4 compact crossover. When all-wheel drive is not needed, the Dynamic Torque Control AWD system employs an electromagnetic coupling on the front and rear axles that will disengage from the differential to function in FWD and prioritize fuel economy. When faced with inclement weather or icy roads, a suite of sensors will monitor throttle input and traction and will divert up to 50 percent of torque to the rear wheels when the system feels the wheels slip or feels you lose traction. With this system in place, you will enjoy all-wheel drive performance in the winter and front-wheel drive fuel economy in the summer.
