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

Deciding on what you are looking for in a vehicle is a practical way to determine whether a front-wheel-drive (FWD) or a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) vehicle is the right choice for you. Each option offers benefits, and they each have their limitations.

FWD is an economical choice. That’s an important factor to consider if you are planning on putting a large number of miles on it, or you simply want to save money. Because it’s designed with the engine and drivetrain in the front, production is more streamlined. That savings is passed on to the consumer. It also involves fewer parts, which creates a lighter and more fuel-efficient vehicle. Although it is the better handling of the two in the rain or snow, RWD is a more performance-based style. RWD is going to provide you with better overall handling. Additionally, RWD is the more durable choice.
