Get the Real Deal on All-Wheel-Drive and Four-Wheel-Drive

Not everyone is up-to-speed on the definitions of all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive. Lots of people think that you are talking about the same thing, but it is not true. There are similarities in that both power up all four wheels to increase traction for driving on difficult surfaces.

Four-wheel-drive is more familiar to most people because it has been in the public eye longer. It uses a split differential and a lower gear ratio to achieve its place in the system. Pickup trucks and over-sized SUVs used for off-road activities are the vehicles that use this method.

All-wheel-drive is the system that is used on paved roadways for a smooth, yet powerful driving experience in difficult conditions. This method directs an even amount of power to all the four wheels of a vehicle with accommodations for differing road conditions per wheel. Sedans, high-performance vehicles, and crossovers are the vehicles that use all-wheel-drive.
