What is front-wheel drive vs. rear-wheel drive?

Knowing the difference between front- and rear-wheel drive and how they will affect your driving experience helps you narrow your car choices and focus on the ones that best fit your lifestyle.

Wheels transmit the power of cars' engines to the road and steer the car. In rear-wheel drive. power goes to the rear wheels and in front-wheel drive, power goes to the front wheels.

With better front-back balance and more precise steering, rear-wheel drive appeals to performance enthusiasts and helps balance weight in SUVs and pickups. It is also better for towing trailers. Front-wheel drive provides better traction in bad weather, improved fuel economy, and a more spacious vehicle interior.

At Chilson Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT, we offer a wide selection of front-, rear-, and all-wheel drive vehicles and help you find one best for your driving needs.
