Learn About How Honda Real Time AWD™ Works

2021 Honda CR-V
Many common all-wheel-drive systems found in vehicles you see on the road in Watford City or Dickinson engage all wheels at the same time. Others engage just the rear wheels and engage the front wheels as needed. The Honda approach to AWD offers an altogether different kind of experience for New Town drivers like you in need of extra traction. Learn more about what Honda Real Time AWD™ is and how it works below. Then contact us if you still have questions!

How Does Honda AWD Work? Here’s What to Know

Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control is added to Honda front-wheel-drive vehicles with a rear differential to give them truly rugged AWD capability. What’s the benefit of this? When you lose grip or traction over Watford City roads, this system engages the rear differential with a multi-plate clutch system. Once your Honda is driving with the rear wheels are engaged too, it means that you’re operating with AWD!

How does Honda AWD work compared to regular AWD? In most other AWD systems, you’ll probably notice a lag before the system kicks in. With the Honda Real Time AWD™ and Intelligent Control System, however, the power transition is nearly-instantaneous! And, what’s more, when it comes time for your Honda Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System to disengage, it does so just as quickly and seamlessly (and efficiently)!
