Demystify the Differences Between All-Wheel-Drive and Four-Wheel-Drive

Some people have difficulty distinguishing between four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive systems. Both of them to provide power to all of the wheels of a vehicle for the purpose of providing extra traction. But that is where the similarity ends. Both are similar but have different functions.

The four-wheel-drive systems use a split differential and lower gear ratios to get the job done. They are found in pickup trucks and oversized off-road SUVs. For off-road and difficult and rugged terrain driving, the four-wheel-drive application is perfect.

The all-wheel-drive configuration uses a shared power application that is sent evenly to each wheel. This provides the traction on paved road surfaces with a slight boost to wheels that experience difficult road conditions. Sedans, crossover vehicles, and high-performance vehicles are primary users of the all-wheel-drive system.
