Does Every 4WD Vehicle Need a Transfer Case?

Very few things are as invigorating as shifting into four-wheel drive and pulling off the road for an outdoor adventure. 4WD and AWD vehicles are incredibly powerful pieces of machinery, and most of them rely on a complex mechanical device known as a transfer case.

Drivers are often surprised to hear that there are actually two different types of 4WD vehicles. Part-time 4WD vehicles have a switch or button that allows you to shift from 2WD to 4WD. That shift is carried out in a transfer case located near the drive shaft of the vehicle. Full-time 4WD and AWD vehicles don’t have transfer cases because they are constantly sending power to each of the tires.
