I have been looking for an AWD CR-V and reading up on them. Thank you to the forum members for helping with my education! I have come across 2 cars (both 2012) that have the AWD badging at the back, but when I put the VIN in the Honda Tech VIN Decoder they come up as 4WD. Maybe this is something obvious that I'm completely missing- - entirely possible, but I can't figure it out.

Thank you!

CRVs are AWD, not 4WD. We do not have selectable modes for 2WD/4WD/4Low etc that are typically found in trucks, bigger SUVs, and Jeeps.

In Gen2 (pre-2007) models, the tag on the rear glass said Real Time 4WD. Gen3 (2007 and up) it's AWD. They are marketing terms, not to be confused with actual 4WD. There are some good YouTube videos that explain the difference and how AWD works pretty well.
