It does not allow more torque to be applied to the driveshaft.
Or yes, it does. That is the definition of "mechanical advantage". Brush up your high school physics.
Some pictures and write up here.
The rest of your post is just as clueless, sorry. Have even done any offroading?
P.S. Any automatic will have about half of a crawl ratio in most cars - for the reason of torque multiplication.
And, yes, you may need both feet with automatic as well: example. Also explain why automatics do not always give you more control, as you assert. Read up - not as good as some actual experience, but helps nevertheless.

Is it possible to take the CRV on the beach without it getting stuck. It has 4 wheel drive, but I am assuming that is meant for slippery conditions, not beach driving. or am I wrong?
Anyone take there truck on the beach?

Just yesterday in Gearhart Oregon( between Seaside and Astoria). The CRV handles ok as long as you stay out of the deep sand as it is not made for that. It is better than a car but not a beachcomber not as good as my Forester.

I have (2) 07- CRV 4wd - Other poster is correct (It is not made for deep soft sand.) I go to the outer banks (Hatteras,NC) often, and always had a True 4x4. Have taken my CRV out a few times for play and it did ok. Did get stuck once in very deep soft sand,(yes my air pressure was lowered to 19) plus had (4) adults.Asking alot out of a small engine. With low ground clearance and small hsp it is not made for real sand. I love it for regular driving and am very pleased with it so far.
