Default AWD for the box?

Found this while searching for new wallpaper:

Its obviously using the 2AZFE as an optional motor and they will offer it with an AWD drivetrain. Think itd be possible and not TOO expensive to convert to AWD? lol

I would dig an AWD system if I still lived in the mountains of Colorado...but, here on the coast of Cali I have no need. I would have never gotten the box if I was still driving in the snow.
I want a turbo first...

awd with toyota is always gonna be auto, not worth the hack job swap, but unless you are using the awd for stability on roadways and not racing go for it, when will toyota make a awd 6 speed(manual).....
