Built on the proprietary Direct Shift architecture, this gearbox is properly synced with the Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD system. Four modes, including Snow and Sport, are available from the Drive Mode Select interface. Both Toyota SUVs also have additional settings from the Multi-Terrain Select module, including the Rock & Dirt.
