Hi fellow Sugarloafers, beware of a 4 door white sedan (age unknown - probably 2005 or so) driving very fast thru the streets of Sugarloaf. He just came down our street going way too fast to get a license plate #. Now I hear him screeching around neighboring streets.

What gutter said... AWD's are also a little worse in gas mileage but do excellent up here in the snow, if it's not too deep. But 4wd's tend to give "certain" people that false sense of security, Rock could surely elaborate. There's pros and cons of both.

I believe the main difference is that an AWD vehicle divides is power between the front and rear. When you have a 4 WD vehicle you get 100% to both sets when activated. AWD vehicles are also much lower to the ground. Not as much ground clearance.

The difference is a 4WD needs an action like pushing a button or pulling a lever. AWD usually means its in all the time. Like a Subaru. No need to push any buttons or pull levers

Nothing's as good as 4WD, but AWD's do great in the majority of our conditions of up here, providing you have a good mud/snow rated tire. You don't need to chain up an AWD unless it's an R-3 restriction in which everyone needs to have chains, 4wd included. But in standard R-2 conditions your AWD will do just fine!

Are AWD just as good as 4WD? Does anyone have a dodge Durango and how does it do on the mountain ?
