How You Can Tell the Difference Between 4-Wheel-Drive and All-Wheel-Drive

In many instances, people get the terminology between 4-wheel-drive and all-wheel drive mixed up. 4-wheel-drive has been around longer, and people usually think that it is all just the same thing, but that is not really true. Each definition has a different use and is used in different vehicles.

4-wheel-drive vehicles are usually larger off-road SUVs and pickup trucks. The system uses a lower gear ratio and a split differential in its protocol. It is mainly used for off-road conditions and rougher terrain. All-wheel-drive vehicles are sedans, crossovers, and high-performance cars for the most part. With the all-wheel-drive setup, a steady flow of power is sent to each wheel individually, with extra power sent as needed by a unique torque system. Used primarily for paved roads, the all-wheel-drive system is ideal for stormy rain situations, snow, and ice.
