Is Forester AWD or 4WD?

The Subaru Forester is available with either all-wheel drive (AWD) or front-wheel drive (FWD). 

All-wheel drive is a type of drivetrain that sends power to all four wheels of the vehicle, which can improve traction and stability on slippery or uneven surfaces. 

Front-wheel drive is a type of drivetrain that sends power only to the front wheels of the vehicle.   

The Forester is available with both AWD and FWD, depending on the model and trim level. 

The base model Forester is available with FWD, while the higher trim levels are available with either AWD or FWD. 

The Forester's AWD system is designed to automatically adjust the distribution of power between the front and  ...

rear wheels as needed, providing improved traction and stability in a variety of driving conditions.   

It is important to note that all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive (4WD) are not the same thing. 

Four-wheel drive is a type of drivetrain that allows the driver to manually switch between two-wheel drive (2WD) and 4WD. 

Four-wheel drive is generally more capable off-road than all-wheel drive, but it is also less fuel efficient and may be less comfortable to drive on pavement.   

All-wheel drive (AWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) are both types of drivetrains that can improve traction and stability on slippery or uneven surfaces.
