Best AWD SUVs | CarMax

If you’re in the market for a vehicle that will give you added confidence behind the wheel, an all-wheel drive vehicle can be a great choice. Specifically, all- wheel drive SUVs are designed to utilize front, center, and rear differentials that allow a vehicle to be powered by all four wheels at once, rather than relying on the front or rear sets of wheels alone. An all-wheel drive SUV can also be ideal for those who like to do a little off-roading here and there, as the added traction and control helps you power over just about any terrain.
