Know the Difference between Front and Rear Wheel Drive Vehicles before Your Next Purchase

Have you ever wondered about the differences between a front wheel and a rear wheel drive vehicle? Perhaps, you’re even trying to decide on which type to purchase!

A front wheel drive vehicle has a lower cost to manufacture and a combined drivetrain that includes the engine and axle, which is considered easier to install on an assembly line at the factory. With the drivetrain in the front, there is usually a benefit to getting the traction desired in rain and snow.

A rear wheel drive vehicle has a solid axle design, which is considered durable enough to sustain any damage that could happen, such as hitting a pothole or a curb at high impact. Many police cruisers and sports cars are rear wheel drive.
