Understand Front-Wheel and Rear-Wheel Drive

We provide this blog to expand your automotive knowledge. It can improve your next car-buying decision. Today, let's compare front-wheel and rear-wheel drive systems.

As the name indicates, front-wheel drive systems convey horsepower to the ground through cars' front wheels. Rear-wheel drive systems do it via back wheels. Manufacturers and cost-conscious consumers like front-wheel drive systems because they have fewer parts and lower price tags. Also, compared to RWD, FWD systems produce superior winter traction. Meanwhile, RWD systems handle immaculately on dry pavement. Notably, front-wheel drive systems weigh less, so you can squeeze more miles out of a gallon of gasoline. Still, rear-wheel systems feature denser, sturdier parts that typically lead to fewer drive-system repairs than front-wheel setups.
