What is the difference between AWD vs. 4×4? 

Modern automobiles are more reliable and higher performing than ever before. That also means modern cars, trucks and SUVs are also more complex than ever before. There is a lot to know and one of the most confusing concepts facing buyers is understanding all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive. So, what is the difference between AWD vs. 4×4? On the surface, these systems perform similar functions, but each one is designed for different purposes. It is pretty easy to get in the weeds of engineering terms when explaining how these things work. Our team found a couple of videos that do a good job making the information as accessible as possible. If you have any questions about the capabilities of any vehicle available at any vehicle at any of our locations, please make an appointment with your nearest Third Coast Auto Group product expert today.
