We often get the question, what is better, Four-Wheel or All-Wheel Drive in extreme weather? And with winter right around the corner, we thought we would try and find out what ideas were out there. We found this article from Weather.com that tries to put that question to rest.
“Four-wheel and all-wheel-drive (AWD) can be somewhat confusing terms. It’s as if AWD vehicles have some number of wheels other than four, but that’s obviously not the case. Particularly with new technology constantly emerging, the difference can turn into marketing semantics from different manufacturers to an extent. Nonetheless, the industry as a whole recognizes some general characteristics of each type.” – Mark Wagnon
