Rear-wheel Drive and Front-wheel Drive: What's the Difference?

A transmission system is manufactured with front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. Although most car owners know if their vehicles come with front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive, they do not know the difference between the two transmission systems. If you want to know the difference between FWD and RWD, read further for more information.

Rear-wheel drive and front-wheel drive are different because of how they provide power to a vehicle. RWD provides better off-road capability because power is distributed to the rear wheel (from the engine) via the drive shaft. Front-wheel drive typically provides drivers with better handling in adverse weather conditions. FWD is more common than RWD because it is more cost-effective, and it is easier for automobile companies to manufacture vehicles with front-wheel drive.

It is important to have your transmission system serviced with routine inspections, so visit the service center at Capitol Chevrolet Montgomery to schedule an inspection.
