The all wheel drive mountaineer is "Full-time" so there are no interior controls. If the exterior badge that says AWD is missing then you must look under the vehicle. Easiest is to look inboard of the from brakes and see if there is an axle shaft with a boot that that looks like a black rubber accordian. this is the cover for the CV axle joint and tells you that there is power to the front axle. That's all you need to know.
