The Difference Between Front-Wheel Drive and Rear-Wheel Drive

The most obvious difference between front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive is what wheels are responsible for powering the vehicle down the road. Front-wheel drive vehicles are powered and pulled along the road by the front wheels while rear-wheel drive are pushed by the back wheels.

Vehicles manufactured using front-wheel drive are cheaper to make, and therefore cheaper for the buyer. If you are looking for an economical vehicle to take on long commutes to work, front-wheel drive is the answer. Front-wheel drive vehicles are easier to handle when road conditions are slippery, giving drivers more control.

Many SUVs and luxury sedans use rear-wheel drive technology because it is more powerful, offering faster speeds and more overall power for the vehicle. Rear-wheel drive was once the standard, and has now declined in use for the more affordable front-wheel drive.
