What’s the Difference Between AWD and FWD?

When shopping for a new Toyota car, it helps to know about the different features found on each model. This is why it’s helpful to know the difference between all-wheel drive (AWD) and front-wheel drive (FWD), so you can know what to look for in a new car.

Here at Bob Smith Toyota, we have a great selection of new Toyota cars with each type of drivetrain, so shop our inventory to find the model that suits you best.  

AWD vs. FWD: Explained

When shopping for a new Toyota, you may come across several types of features found on each car, including the drivetrain or “driveline.” Some common ones you’ll see are AWD and FWD.

Most vehicles start with FWD, which means that power is only sent to the two front wheels of the vehicle. This is typically the best drivetrain for everyday practicality and efficiency, which is why it is offered as a standard drivetrain on most vehicles, especially sedans.  

Another common drivetrain to find on vehicles is AWD. With this drivetrain, power is distributed between the four wheels based on the need for torque and grip. As you can imagine, this drivetrain is well-suited for off-roading and all-weather driving.
