The Differences Between All-Wheel Drive and Four-Wheel Drive

November 29th, 2017 by

It used to be that only big trucks and large SUVs had four-wheel drive. But many vehicles these days, even some smaller cars, have either four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

Four-wheel drive is a function where all four wheels on your car move at the same time. This gives you better traction in mud, snow and off-road conditions. All-wheel drive is different in that a computer is used to engage each wheel individually. So you could have the front wheels going at one point, the back wheels going at another and all four at another point. It adjusts based on what you need at the moment.


The advantage of either four-wheel or all-wheel drive is better traction, which means better control of your vehicle in certain driving conditions.
