    Does anyone have a real data the shows the distance rwd vs. awd can get? I’ve heard some say that the rwd has more range is that true?

    This is a pretty good comparison, but your actual mileage will vary significantly on local conditions. But I think this allows you to compare the different versions reasonably well:

    One quibble is that I would expect the range of RWD and AWD to get closer at higher speeds as aerodynamic loss becomes a higher percentage of the energy use.
