Chevrolet Captiva Owners Manual: Drive Systems

All-Wheel Drive

Vehicles with this feature always send engine power to all four wheels. It is fully automatic, and adjusts itself as needed for road conditions.

When using a compact spare tire on an AWD vehicle, the system automatically detects the compact spare and disables AWD. To restore AWD operation and prevent excessive wear on the system, replace the compact spare with a full-size tire as soon as possible.

See Compact Spare Tire on page 10-65.

2014 Chevrolet Captiva's All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system is a standout feature that enhances the vehicle's traction and stability in various driving conditions. Unlike manual four-wheel drive systems, the AWD system in the Captiva operates automatically, continuously monitoring road conditions and wheel slippage to adjust power distribution to all four wheels as needed. This automatic operation is particularly beneficial for drivers who want enhanced traction without the need to engage or disengage a four-wheel drive mode manually.

One of the key advantages of the Captiva's AWD system is its dynamic adjustments based on real-time data. By analyzing inputs from wheel speed sensors and traction control systems, the AWD system can respond quickly to changing road surfaces. For instance, if a wheel starts to slip on a slippery surface, the system can transfer more power to the wheels with better grip, helping to maintain control and stability.

The AWD system's capabilities make the 2014 Captiva well-suited for a range of driving scenarios, including adverse weather conditions like rain, snow, and icy roads. It provides drivers with added confidence and peace of mind, especially when navigating challenging road surfaces. While the Captiva's AWD system may not be designed for extreme off-road adventures, it offers sufficient off-road capability for light off-road driving and rough terrain. Overall, the AWD system in the 2014 Chevrolet Captiva enhances the vehicle's versatility and performance, making it a reliable choice for drivers seeking traction, stability, and control in diverse driving environments.
