What is FWD vs. RWD: A Short Drivetrain Guide

April 4th, 2018 by

Vehicles actually come in three different types of drivetrains, including FWD or front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive (RWD), or all-wheel drive (AWD). You have probably heard these terms before, but what do they mean for you when you're on the road?

Mostly this depends on the weather, unless you are into racing. In a RWD, you get better handling according to most car owners. The rear wheels provide the power to push the car forward, while the front wheels steer the direction.

With FWD, you get better handling for snowy and ice conditions. They are much more fuel-efficient, and have more room inside of them than a rear-wheel drive vehicle, for the most part. There are also AWD vehicles that handle the best in icy road conditions. Some manufacturers provide a combination of all three; this includes Dodge.
