How Front-Wheel Drive and Rear-Wheel Drive Differ

A transmission system is important for a vehicle's overall performance, and each vehicle comes with a front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive transmission system. By knowing the difference between the two, you can gain an idea of how your transmission influences the acceleration, traction, and handling of your vehicle.

Basically, vehicles with front-wheel drive are powered through pull from the front tires, and rear-wheel vehicles are powered through push from the rear tires. Because the engine, steering, and other components are housed in one unit and placed in the front of the vehicle, front-wheel drive is cheaper to manufacture, which is why it is found in more vehicles than rear-wheel drive. Rear-wheel drive provides drivers with better traction for off-road capabilities. However, front-wheel drive is known to perform better in adverse weather condition.
