All-Wheel-Drive and Four-Wheel-Drive are Similar Enough to Get Confused

Many people are opting for a multiple-wheel drive vehicle, either a four-wheel-drive or an all-wheel-drive type. So, what is the difference between the two? Essentially there is a difference in function.

Four-wheel-drive vehicles use a split differential and a lower gear ratio to cause all four wheels to engage. This gives the vehicle better traction at the driving surface level. This method is mostly used in pickup trucks and larger off-road SUVs. Four-wheel-drive technology is used in off-road and rugged terrain driving experiences.

All-wheel-drive sends power to all four wheels of a vehicle with allowances for extra bursts depending on the condition of the roadway per wheel. This technology is designed for paved roads and offers a stable and powerful dependency for driving in all kinds of road conditions. Sedans, high-performance vehicles, and crossovers use this type of drivetrain.
