Let me explain. 4WD is what is typically on trucks and SUVs and is in some ways less sophisticated than AWD. It sends power equally everywhere regardless of conditions. A lot of 4WD trucks and SUVs that are used off road will have front and rear differentials that lock up so power is distrubuted equally to all 4 wheels. This is desireable in low traction situations, but in reality most SUVs never see this (or ever leave the pavement)
The only thing I would add to this is that many SUV's and trucks also have a 4Auto (or some similar name) setting that does not send power equally to all wheels, but rather redistributes on demand, much like AWD vehicles. I know Ford and GM has these features, at least. These vehicles also typically have a 4Hi setting that does what tsy states.

Sorry for not getting back sooner. We own a 4WD.

Anyone with one of these who has noticed a picture quality issue? The one on my 06 Pilot does not have a clear picture, it looks like a tv with a loose antenna cable. It was not like this before and the lense is clean. Any ideas?

I will post a short review of the vehicles I'm going to be checking out at the Phialdelphia Auto Show on 1/29/2012. I like being able to toy with all the stuff, look under the hood and basically become a vehicle proctologist without having a sales person breathing over me. After the Auto Show, if the vehicle survives the "Cut List" I then do a road test at a local dealer. I have about 15-20 vehicles on a list as a replacement for "The Beast" (my '06 Honda Pilot EX-OR) and plan on cutting the list down to about 5 after the Auto Show. So these 5 will be the vehicles I will do the reviews on. I will post a "Why Cut" reasoning behind why each vehicle on my list got cut.
I will post a link to a photo album (will be public) on my facebook page after I get done uploading pictures.

How has your mileage been now that you have owned your vehicle for awhile?
I keep a track record of my gas mileage with "The Beast" and have been a constant 16-20mpg depending on where I go. Best I have ever gotten was 26mpg and the worst was 5mpg.
