How Does All-Wheel Drive Compare to Four-Wheel Drive?

So you are out shopping for your next vehicle and see that the model you like is available in All-Wheel Drive (AWD) or Four-Wheel Drive (4WD). What does this mean and what are its benefits? We lay this out below to help drivers in Mineral Wells get the truck or SUV you deserve.

An SUV or truck equipped with AWD means that the vehicle will have a drivetrain that will deliver power to all four of the wheels instead of the standard two wheels found in Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) vehicles. The popular 4WD systems deliver power to all four wheels as well, but this system typically refers to a drivetrain available in trucks instead of sedans and crossovers. One of the major benefits of both AWD and 4WD vehicles is that they have improved traction in slippery, rough and uneven terrain. This makes them ideal for drivers who frequently travel on dirt roads or go off-roading.

Another benefit is better acceleration during wet or icy conditions. If you are looking for a 4WD or AWD vehicle, then come into Ram Country Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Mineral Wells, TX. We have a large stock of available truck and SUV models to choose from. Our team will also be glad to explain the differences between the 4WD and AWD models and the standard ones.
