AWD vs. 4WD: Fuel economy

Many of the four-wheel-drive vehicles have automatic 4-wheel drive. This means that no longer does a driver have to get out of their vehicle in order to lock the hubs for 4-wheel drive to be engaged. Instead, this can be accomplished with the push of a button.

Most all-wheel drive vehicles are automatic four-wheel drive, and that means that they are all-wheel drive full time. Having the added safety and security of full-time all-wheel drive may be alluring to some customers. For those customers who are worried about fuel efficiency, it may not be the option for them. Not having the capability to turn off all-wheel drive means that fuel economy will decline because all four wheels are drive wheels and use more fuel to operate. A four-wheel drive vehicle has the option of turning 4WD on or off, thus increasing fuel economy. Visit Don's Auto Clinic to find out more!
