The Actual Difference Between Four-Wheel-Drive and All-Wheel-Drive

The terms of four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive get confused sometimes by people who are not used to conversing about their similarities and differences. They both do cause all four wheels of a vehicle to engage in command to gain additional traction on the driving surface.

However, there are differences as to function that bear discussion. Four-wheel-drive is well known as it has been around longer. With this function, a split differential is used along with a lower gear ration to achieve the result. It is mostly found in pickup trucks and larger off-road SUVs. These types of vehicles are mostly used off-road and in rougher terrain.

The all-wheel-drive systems supply an even amount of power to each wheel, with allowance for road conditions at each station. Designed to be run on paved road surfaces, the all-wheel-drive systems provide a smooth and comfortable ride. This system is found in sedans, high-performance cars, and crossover vehicles.
