How do you use 4 wheel drive in a Toyota Highlander?

I’m going on a ski trip with some friends, and I’m a little nervous about driving in the snow. My mom said that I’ll have more control if I turn on four-wheel drive in my car, but I don’t know how! What’s the best way to use 4WD in a Toyota Highlander?

Four-wheel drive is a great feature for winter driving, as it helps you gain traction and power in icy conditions. Plus, it’s easy to activate!
Follow these steps to use four-wheel drive in your Toyota Highlander:
  • Step 1: Turn on your car.
  • Step 2: Press the button labeled 4WD on your gear shift.
  • Step 3: Your car should switch to four-wheel drive.
To turn off four-wheel drive in your Toyota Highlander, just hit the same button again. Remember, four-wheel drive is convenient for handling tough terrain, but it also burns gas much faster than you normally would. So, make sure you have plenty of fuel and try to only use four-wheel drive when you need more control.
