Yes that's what all time all wheel drive means. It is al tied up in one drive train.

Depends on what you consider all wheel drive. Our cars still have the same drivetrain characteristics going in reverse as they do forward, however by no means does each of our wheels maintain a strict 25% torque load at all times.

Not sure if I remember this right. The manual tranny is normally 50:50 front rear. The auto is 90:10 front to rear in higher gears unless it's slipping then it will transfer up to 50% to the rear. Unless you are in first or reverse then it's set at 50:50 torque split.

Do I have that right?
