What's the Difference Between All-Wheel Drive and 4-Wheel Drive?

All-wheel drive (AWD) versus 4-wheel drive (4WD). When purchasing a car, many people weigh this matchup to consider which would best suit their needs. First, you need to understand the difference between the two, and the pros and cons of each.

Both options offer better acceleration in slippery conditions. However, AWD has a front, rear, and center differential that gives power to all four wheels. On the other hand, 4WD has only two differentials and a transfer case that feeds power to the wheels. While both help with handling, towing, and resale value; they also normally have lower fuel economy, cost more, and need more routine maintenance.

If you don't travel on dirt or snow regularly, it's safe to assume neither of these is for you. Although, if you still can't decide, feel free to visit us at Diffee Lincoln. We will help choose the perfect option for you.
