4×4 Drivetrain Information

Four by four vehicles use two axles and can provide torque to all four wheels at the same time. This provides added traction when the driver needs it most. The 4×4 configuration comes in handy during winter months, when roads are covered in snow, ice and sleet, and they are also very beneficial when braving off-road terrain. While driving on the highway, in the city or through regular driving conditions, the two-wheel drive configuration is sufficient. The driver can engage four-wheel drive when they need added traction while driving through snow, ice, rocky surfaces, deep mud, sand, ruts and steep inclines and synclines.
