Do You Know the Difference Between Front-Wheel and Rear-Wheel Drive?

Your vehicle is a complex piece of machinery that is comprised of numerous components, such as a transmission system. A vehicle's transmission system is either front-wheel or rear-wheel drive, and knowing the difference can help you keep your car running properly.

Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive models differ in how and where power is distributed to the wheels of the vehicle. A vehicle with a rear-wheel drive transmission system is powered from the rear wheels pushing it forward, which occurs when energy is transferred from the engine to the rear wheels via the drive shaft. A front-wheel drive transmission system uses the front wheels to pull the vehicle forward. Many prefer rear-wheel drive because of its off-road capabilities, but front-wheel drive is more cost effective.
