So many of us know we want 4X4 (Four-Wheel Drive) but don’t really know what it is or how it works exactly! Well, today I’m going to do my best to explain it! Most trucks and SUV’s come with 4WD these days, which is a great feature! So having a vehicle with 4WD means that the vehicle’s engine and transmission is capable of driving all four wheels at one time. This is great for traction while driving off-road in difficult conditions like mud, snow, sand or a mixture of slick conditions, however; it won’t do much for the driver on ice. The vehicle is basically redirecting power from the transmission to both the rear and the front wheels at the same time. Almost all 4X4-enabled vehicles require drivers to shift into four-wheel drive manually with a lever and small gearing shifter mounted next to the main gear shift, or in luxury off-road vehicles, there’s a button or buttons to push. Usually, vehicles with a 4X4 system only use two-wheel drive to get around in town or on dry pavement – until the going gets tough!! So if 4WD drives sounds and seems appealing to you stop in at Woody’s Automotive Group and check out our huge selections of Ram Trucks and SUV’s!!!
