What does FWD stand for? What’s the difference between 4WD and RWD? There are a lot of things to consider when looking at a new car. The myriad acronyms and specific terms can get overwhelming. That’s why Serra Mazda is here to break down the differences between the types of drivetrains. It’s an important part of the vehicle and an essential part to consider since it will impact when, where and how you can drive.
Front-Wheel Drive (FWD): With this drivetrain, you can expect stability, predictability and dependability. The majority of weight is concentrated in the front, which increases traction.
Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD): This has been the standard for most cars. The engine power is concentrated on the two rear wheels. It can be tricky in winter conditions, although some may have extra stability control that can help on slippery roads.
All-Wheel Drive (AWD): This is a fairly advanced system that gives all four wheels an equal amount of power thanks to fluid-filled gears. It will give you a seamless driving experience and is extremely helpful on wet or icy roads.
Four-Wheel Drive (4WD): 4WD is going to offer the most robust style of driving and rugged capabilities. It’s fairly similar to AWD but offers extra features that let you tackle everything from rocks to mud. This type of drivetrain is best if you’re a fan of off-roading or plan to drive in every type of weather.
No matter which drivetrain speaks to you, Serra Mazda Birmingham has it. We are proud to be part of the Mazda brand and love sharing the capabilities of our vehicles.
