Given information:

While discussing AWD systems:

Technician A says that some systems are electronically controlled and use an electromagnetic clutch to engage and disengage the drive axles.

Technician B says that some cars do not use a transfer case, but they are equipped with a third differential unit.

AWD system is capable of transmitting torque to all the wheels of the vehicle. All wheel drive cars do not offer two speed ratios as in case of 4WD. Passenger cars and smaller SUVs are common all wheel drive vehicle. AWD installed vehicle offer good handling and it offers a smooth drive in all weathers.

They transmit equal and constant power to both front and rear axle. It increases the load capacity of a vehicle. They are not suggested for off-roading, but it can be used on all other surfaces like dry and snow surface...
