Front, Rear and All-Wheel Drive Systems

Vehicles today are available with front, rear or all-wheel drives. Each system generally describes which wheels receive the power to propel the vehicle. The modern front wheel or FWD are particularly favored in bad weather due to the fact they provide more traction where pulling power is needed. The system contains fewer parts and is less expensive to manufacture. However, they are also more easily damaged. Rear-wheel or RWD offers vehicle stability. However, in bad weather, vehicles have little traction.

All-wheel or AWD combine both FWD and RWD technology. But, the system is more expensive and weighs more, which reduces gas mileage. Repairing AWD systems is also easily costlier. The type of vehicle drivetrain you choose depends on many factors. At Sheboygan Auto, we can provide all the information you need to make an educated decision when in the market for a new vehicle.
