Out of curiosity...was the issue of whether or not AWD was better than 4WD settled? I have had 2WD for years and have been from Florida to Wyoming and parts east and west. For years, a good friend has strongly discouraged me from ever getting 4WD due to my penchant for finding "squiggly gray lines" on a map that turn out to be BLM roads. He says if I had a 4WD it would just take longer...and be more expensive to get me out once I got stuck.

However...when he got stuck on wet grass in his own yard in a 4WD... I didn't say a word. Seriously. Too busy laughing. 4WD sounds good these days.

Meh. Wait till they come out with a motor on each wheel and they can do this. [emoticon].

The price and build sheets of 2020 Silverados are either 2WD or 4WD, no AWD option meaning they have 1 transfer case not 3 as on AWD cars.

There are two different 4WD options.
-- 4hi, 4lo, and 2wd
-- 4hi, 4lo, AWD and 2wd

This thread has gotten confusing.
AWD generally means All Wheel Drive. There have been several posts on here about the A setting meaning Automatic 4 Wheel Drive. They are very different things.

I think that this last post should read that the last option is:
4hi, 4lo, Automatic 4hi and 2wd.
