When to Pick Up a 4WD or AWD Vehicle

There are several differences between two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive powertrains. They’re often abbreviated to 2WD, 4WD, and AWD powertrains.

2WD drive vehicles are intended for paved roadway use only. While it’s possible to drive on dirt roads too, it's not a system that's designed for harsh terrain.

Most car experts consider AWD vehicles to be better for sporadic or intermittent use when you need enhanced traction-boosting capabilities. Thanks to advanced computers that are often found in modern vehicles and switches on automatically when conditions get tough. Most 4WD vehicles have options to switch between various gears at your command and are better for frequent use.
