What is the Difference Between a Front-Wheel and Rear-Wheel-Drive Vehicle?

There are many considerations in choosing your next vehicle. It needn’t be an overwhelming task, however, if you narrow your decision down to three important components. Think about the majority of the road conditions on which you’ll be driving, the typical mileage you plan to drive, and your basic requirements in a vehicle. A front-while-drive (FWD) and a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) vehicle each has specific benefits and limitations.

A FWD, for instance, is the most economical choice. Its design of the engine and drivetrain in the front of the vehicle creates the smoother production. That saves on the initial purchase price. Since it requires fewer parts, it’s also lighter and more fuel efficient. Additionally, a FWD handles much more effectively on slick road conditions. A RWD, though, provides more efficient handling in general, and it’s the choice to make if you’re seeking a high-performance vehicle. An added benefit with RWD is its suspension. You won’t need to worry so much about costly repairs if you knock into a curb, for instance, as you do with a FWD.
