What is AWC?

Mitsubishi’s AWC system is a suite of technologies that give equipped Mitsubishi models maximum traction, safety and performance.

How do you use it? 

AWC is automatically controlled by a series of clutches that direct torque power to the axles and wheels when needed. It has three settings.

  • 2WD

  • 4WD AUTO

  • 4WD LOCK

Each setting is unique to a driving terrain. 2WD maximizes fuel-efficiency by only powering two wheels on normal, dry road conditions. 4WD AUTO is designed for performance driving and predictable handling. 4WD LOCK is great for driving in the snow and rain.

What is the difference between AWC and AWD? 

Not much. All-Wheel Drive is a general term to describe systems that allow vehicles to have power in both axles and all wheels. AWC is Mitsubishi’s premium version of AWD. It is finely tuned for performance driving and ideal for driving on rough terrain.
