Which Should I Choose: All-Wheel-Drive or Four-Wheel-Drive?

If you are considering the purchase of a new or used vehicle you might want to consider getting a car that can provide traction on all four wheels. These types of vehicles come in two configurations, four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive.

Four-wheel-drive vehicles are the most widely known type as they have been available for quite some time. Four-wheel-drive is found in pickups and larger off-road SUVs. They use lower gear ratios and a split differential to make the concept work. These vehicles are primarily used for off-road and rough terrain driving purposes.

All-wheel-drive vehicles are designed to run on paved road surfaces. Sedans, crossover vehicles, and high-performance vehicles are designed with all-wheel-drive capabilities. These vehicles have the power that is distributed to each wheel according to the road conditions at that wheel site. Consequently, the all-wheel-drive systems provide a steady and powerful driving experience in good and bad weather conditions. It does well in rainy, snowy, and icy conditions.
