With many consumers demanding all-wheel drive on their vehicles, Toyota has decided to introduce this system throughout its lineup. Now, the Camry and Avalon sedans will offer Dynamic Torque Control AWD to provide drivers with a better grip on the road.
The Dynamic Torque Control AWD system works to provide the best traction possible in inclement and slippery weather. It minimizes AWD’s gas-guzzling tendencies by essentially becoming front-wheel drive when the enhanced traction isn’t needed. Then, once the system detects that you need better grip, the AWD will re-engage in an instant. It’s the same system used in the newest Toyota RAV4.
This system will be available on the Camry LE, XLE, SE, and XSE trim levels, along with the Avalon Limited trim.
Originally, these sedans weren’t designed with AWD models in mind, but the engineering team at Toyota Motor North America Research and Development in Saline, Michigan decided to develop these models with the market demand in mind. This is the first all-wheel-drive Camry since 1991 and the first-ever all-wheel-drive Avalon.
AWD Camry and Avalon models will only be available in North America. While they won’t be ready for the current cold months, they’ll arrive at Downtown Toyota and other dealerships in plenty of time for next winter.
