What About 4-Wheel Drive and All-Wheel-Drive?


The contrast between all-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-drive is largely based on the type of vehicle that is being driven and the terrain that it is being driven over. The all-wheel-drive vehicles are usually sedans, crossovers, and high-performance cars. The 4-wheel-drive vehicles are typically pickup trucks and large sized SUVs.

The all-wheel-drive vehicles stay mainly on paved or well-maintained roads, but they are needed in bad weather. Their mechanical status is that a constant flow of power is sent to each wheel, but it can vary based on the condition of the pavement that the tire encounters.

The 4-wheel-drive vehicles use a lower gear ratio and a locking differential system that will gain traction over rough features and off-road situations.

The ability of your vehicle to have four-wheel power is a very good safety feature, especially in snow and ice. The two extra wheels gripping the roadway or surface of the ground adds much more stability and control to the vehicle.
