AWD vs FWD
Most vehicles have a front-wheel drive system, which means that the engine’s power goes directly to the front wheels. Vehicles with FWD tend to have more room and better fuel economy, but they also struggle to gain traction and control in slippery and off-road conditions. In vehicles with all-wheel drive, the power from the engine is dispersed amongst all four wheels, so if one wheel has trouble gaining traction, others care still able to. Vehicles with FWD are much more likely to get stuck than vehicles with AWD.
There are many perks of driving a vehicle with AWD, like higher resale value, ability to drive through various conditions and off-road driving capabilities. Vehicles with AWD have quicker acceleration, provide more control and have better towing abilities than vehicles with FWD. If you tend to do more off-road driving and would benefit from increased control, consider investing in an AWD vehicle.
