Comparing Front and Rear Wheel Drive, AWD & 4WD, Part 1

Comparing Front and Rear Wheel Drive, AWD & 4WDTo help our customers understand the differences Key Transmission and Gears in Englewood offers this helpful guide, Comparing Front and Rear Wheel Drive, AWD & 4WD, Part 1. There are a number of things the average driver probably doesn’t know, so for this 2-part series, we start with an explanation of how each of the drive types functions. We hope this will be helpful in choosing the right drive type for your needs the next time you buy a new car.

Before we begin discussing the drive types, it will be helpful for you to understand the function of a car part called the differential. Think about two wheels on an axle. Every time those two wheels are not going in a straight line, one must travel a longer distance than the other. Thus the one that has to go farther has to rotate faster than the other. That is where the differential comes into play. It is a device with gears that allows for one wheel to go quicker than the other and keep the car moving evenly.

Rear Wheel Drive

Rear wheel drive has been the drive type of choice for many years. This kind of drive is simple, easy to manufacture and provides a robust and reliable function. The setup is comprised of an engine in the front of the car with the transmission and a drive shaft transferring power to the rear wheel axle and thus the rear wheels. Though the power comes from the back, the front wheels handle the steering, effectively dividing the labor.

The advantages of rear wheel drive are, it is strong and durable, and therefore this drive type is used in almost all trucks (with the exception of some light-duty models) and also luxury and racing car models. As a car accelerates, weight transfers to the rear wheels as a natural byproduct of acceleration. Driving from the heavier-weighted rear wheels offers better and faster acceleration. Hence, all true sports cars and racing models come with rear wheel drive.

Front Wheel Drive

Front wheel drive, logically enough, keeps everything at the front of the car. The engine, transmission, drive gears, and differential are all there together at the front of the car. This type is popular in modern sedans in the middle to lower price ranges for two fundamental reasons, fuel economy and space efficiency.

Front wheel drive cars can be made lighter and afford more room inside the car without the addition of the drive shaft and other parts needed for rear wheel drive. All minivans are front wheel drive for this reason. Though front wheel drive can never compete with the performance capabilities of rear wheel drive, it does do a better job in slippery conditions, making it a popular choice for drivers that live in snowy areas like Colorado.

From all of us here at Key Transmission and Gears, we hope this guide, Comparing Front and Rear Wheel Drive, AWD & 4WD, Part 1, has helped you understand some key differences. Watch for our next article to find out the advantages and disadvantages of AWD and 4WD. And as always feel free to bring your car to our experts here in Englewood if you need help with any drive type.

Hauling, Transmission Damage and More

Hauling, Transmission Damage and MoreToday, Key Transmission and Gears in Englewood offers a few quick pointers on hauling, transmission damage and more. If you operate a tow vehicle on a regular basis, whether for work or for fun, you want it to last. Keep these pointers in mind as you hit the road, and you’ll have a pleasant journey. 

Overworked Engine

This is the number one mistake made by people towing. Pay close attention during hot weather, to all of your pressure gauges, temperate gauges, and exhaust gas temperature gauges. If temperatures reach a critical point, it will cause a meltdown of the engine system, and that can only spell trouble.

Take it easy to prevent transmission damage. Arriving at your destination a bit later will spare you from a blown transmission and big repair bill to get you back on the road.

Loading

For safety reasons and transmission longevity reasons, be sure to load your trailer correctly. This is going to make a bigger difference than you realize. You want the majority of the cargo weight in front, near the tongue. Then disperse weight all the way to the back.

Need for Speed

This seems like an obvious one, but accidents caused by racing down the highway while pulling a trailer happen daily. Of course, you want to get to your destination, but at what cost? Take it slow and steady like the turtle and get there safely.

Tire Pressure

This is a pretty basic yet often overlooked safety measure while towing a trailer. Make sure that your tire pressure is correct. Not only will the trailer or camper roll more efficiently, but this will reduce the risk of a blowout and make your driving experience smoother.

Ball Mounts

Each of the three ball mount sizes is rated for various weights, so be sure to use the correct size for your towing job. If you plan to make several tow trips with different tow loads, go ahead and change out the ball mounts for the specific job.

Brakes

The brakes on your towing vehicle are critical and need regular servicing. Don’t neglect to maintain the brakes on your vehicle and trailer or you can guarantee some issues out on the road.

Lube Components

Axles, pivot joints, and tongue jack all need lubrication to work smoothly. Anywhere that steel meets steel or rubber requires some lubrication. Making sure the components are greased is going to go a long way in contributing to a safe towing journey.

Distribution Bars

The distribution bar is going to help you have a better connection between truck and trailer eliminating a lot of the bouncing that may usually go along with towing. Keep as much steering control as possible ensuring the distribution bar is parallel to the trailer frame.

Now that you have more information on hauling, transmission damage and more, you will be able to keep things operating effectively for longer. And if your transmission needs thorough, high-quality repair work or maintenance services, come on by and see us at Key Transmission and Gears in Englewood.
