4Matic Question

Hello - new member here with quick question. My wife just got a 2008 E350. How can I tell if it is AWD or not? It has ESP on it, that's pretty much all I know about it. Is there a way to decode the VIN to find out? Thanks, and look forward to learning from here.

Is it having 4-Matic badge on the trunk?
If not, you can turn the front wheels all the way on side and see if you have CV Joints boots there.
