Knowing Your Driving Style Will Help You Decide on AWD or 4WD

When picking out your next vehicle, it is important to know what your needs for that vehicle will be before you make the purchase. Having that information will help you to decide if an AWD vehicle is better suited for you than a 4WD vehicle, or vice versa.

The key to this is understanding first that AWD and 4WD are similar, but still quite different. 4WD puts the control in the hands of the driver. This setup is most commonly found in trucks and SUV's, and lets the driver choose to operate in 2-wheel drive, 4-wheel drive, or 4WD LOW for those times when you need the maximum amount of traction available.

AWD operates in the same mode all of the time. In this case, the vehicle monitors all 4 wheels while driving, and reroutes power accordingly when slippage is detected to give maximum traction available at all times.So, if you think that you are ready to get your next AWD or 4WD vehicle, then come and see our experienced sales staff here at Land Rover El Paso and let us help you find the perfect one for you.
