Want to take your drive to new, remote areas? Can’t get there without a vehicle capable at driving off-road? Four-wheel drive (4WD) is a popular drivetrain among adventurers that want to conquer some of the most challenging terrains. Here at U.S. Auto Sales, we offer a large diversity of vehicles with 4WD, so you can easily find the right match with us.
What makes 4WD so special? This advanced drivetrain offers many advantages and benefits to drivers that wish to drive off-road. Primarily found in many SUVs and trucks, this unique drivetrain sends torque to all four wheels to help hold traction. 4WD is different in that power is diverted to each tire equally. This way, if one tire loses traction, the other tires will help keep the vehicle moving. Due to its incredible capabilities, many vehicles with 4WD can even cross shallow streams, climb over large rocks and logs, and travel on unstable ground such as mud and sand. A few popular brands that manufacture vehicles with 4WD include Jeep, Toyota, Ford, Chevrolet, Nissan, and Mitsubishi.
In addition, some models offer part-time 4WD while others have full-time 4WD. With part-time 4WD, drivers can choose when to engage 4WD. When 4WD isn’t active, the vehicle will drive as if it is front-wheel drive (FWD) in order to save fuel. Meanwhile, vehicles with full-time 4WD will have this drivetrain active all the time.
