Acura AWD System

Why do so many Siouxland drivers depend on the Acura AWD system in Sioux Falls, SD? Acura’s AWD system—better known as Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®)—is a revolutionary drivetrain that functions differently than other, traditional all-wheel drive systems. How is it superior? Continue reading as the staff at Vern Eide Acura explains why Acura AWD SUVs and AWD cars make for some of the safest (and entertaining) vehicles to drive.

Why Does South Dakota Choose Acura AWD Vehicles?

Inspired by the NSX supercar, this drivetrain is all about enhancing performance, whether you’re driving on slick roads or dry pavement. Acura’s SH-AWD continuously shifts engine torque from the front to the rear wheels (and side to side in back), depending on many different factors, including the vehicle’s weight distribution, available traction, and the driver’s input.


Living in the Midwest, we all know the weather can change at the drop of a dime. Snow one day and sunny the next is all too common from Sioux Falls, SD, to Sioux City, IA. And while the extra grip provided by SH-AWD can be a lifesaver during icy road conditions, Acura’s AWD system can also increase fuel efficiency during highway cruising and even boost the MDX towing capacity from 3,500 lbs. to 5,000 lbs. when properly equipped.

Other Standard Equipment to Enhance Acura AWD

While available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ is a gamechanger when it comes to performance, all new Acura vehicles also come standard equipped with a Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, Vehicle Stability Assist® (VSA®) with Traction Control, the AcuraWatch™ safety suite, and an Integrated Dynamics System (IDS). The IDS system allows the Sioux Empire to personalize their experience behind the wheel with unique driving modes ranging from Sport to Snow. (Acura’s Type S models provide even more driving modes.)
