How do you know if an all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle or a 4-wheel drive (4WD) vehicle is right for you? What is the difference between an all-wheel drive vehicle or a 4-wheel drive vehicle? The professionals at the Zeck Ford car dealership in Purcell, Oklahoma are here to help figure out which vehicle and which drivetrain is best for you and your crew.

All-Wheel Drive Vehicles (AWD) for Sale

Vehicles with all-wheel-drive systems power both the front and the rear wheels all the time. There are actually two types of drivetrains that are called all-wheel drive; one type drives all the wheels continuously and the other type, also called “automatic AWD,” drives all the wheels only part time. Both part-time and full-time all-wheel drive systems operate with no input from the driver of the vehicle. In an all-wheel drive vehicle, all of the wheels get torque through a series of differentials, viscous couplings, and/or multiple clutches, which help distribute power to the wheels so that the car’s traction is optimized. In short: all-wheel drive helps your tires stick to the road.

If you are a driver that doesn’t want to have to make any decisions about engaging your vehicle’s drivetrain system, then an all-wheel drive vehicle is the best choice for you.

If you’re looking for a vehicle that is able to work well in a variety of conditions, from rain to snow to light off-roading, an all-wheel drive vehicle would probably be the correct vehicle choice for you. AWD vehicles come in a wide variety of vehicles giving you a broad range of choices for you to decide your dream vehicle with your Zeck Ford professional.

If an all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle is the right choice for you, talk to a Zeck Ford personal shopper about some of these Ford models on the lot right now:

Finding 4-Wheel Drive Vehicles (4WD) at a Car Dealership Near Me

Vehicles with four-wheel drive systems are most often trucks or large SUVs. Most people think of drivetrains that power all four of a vehicle’s wheels. Four-wheel drive vehicles are designed in the same way that all-wheel drive vehicles are designed in the sense that the system sends torque to all four of the vehicle’s wheels to increase traction when needed.

Four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicles, though, are different from all-wheel drive vehicles due to the simple fact that 4WD vehicles can generally handle more rugged terrain and tend to be more of a robust system than an AWD.

The high and low ranges of a 4WD system can be selected by the driver and is either an electronic switch or a floor-mounted mechanical lever. These ranges offer maximum traction in off-road environments and are useful for all weather conditions such as packed snow, ice, loose sand, or gravel. Of course, some 4WD systems are automatic; check the information that comes with your favorite Ford model for more information.

If you think a 4WD vehicle is what you’re looking for, talk to your Zeck Ford personal shopper about these Ford models that are currently on Zeck Ford’s lot:
