All-Wheel Drive or Four-Wheel Drive: Which One is Best for You

A huge chunk of all vehicles driven in the United States feature either four-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive capabilities. But what are the differences?

Differentiation between AWD and 4WD, as the pair are most commonly referred to, is difficult. In AWD vehicles, their drivetrain utilizes three differentials. 4WD vehicles drivetrains only have two differentials, although a transfer case allows the drive to determine which wheels receive the most power.

Drivers that frequently engage in off-road scenarios should consider purchasing a vehicle with 4WD capabilities. 4WD is typically for drivers that intend to go off-roading, or just need to get through difficult spots. AWD often features sensors that inform the vehicle of when to delegate power to wheels.
