Take Your Pick - Four-Wheel-Drive or All-Wheel-Drive

Which is it - four-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive? More and more people are purchasing vehicles that have four wheels operating instead of just two for the purpose of providing more traction for their vehicle. However, many people get confused when they are confronted with the terms of four-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, thinking that both definitions relate to the same thing.

That is not altogether true as there are differences according to function. Four-wheel-drive vehicles use split differentials and a lower gear ration in order to achieve its four-wheel mastery. Pickup trucks and bigger sized off-road SUVs are the vehicles that use this technology. These vehicles are mainly used for off-road and more difficult terrain adventures.

All-wheel-drive vehicles provide a steady source of power to all of the wheels with the ability to accommodate changes in the conditions of the road individually. Sedans, crossovers, and high-performance vehicles utilize this method. The result is a steady and powerful ride that operates well in all kinds of difficult weather conditions.
