What is FWD vs RWD: Auto Guide

Front-wheel drive vehicles are the most common. With a FWD, you are using the front drivetrain to pull the car forward. With rear-wheel drive, you push the car forward. Most sports cars have RWD because it offers more power. However, FWD is better for fuel efficiency. There are also all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive vehicles that use all four wheels and give a lot of power as well.

The best drivetrain depends on where you live. If you are in an area with icy roads and snow, then you may want to get an AWD. This is the best way to avoid slipping across the road. Different automakers have other drivetrains. Other automakers are taking suit and allowing drivers to change up their drivetrains for more power or fuel efficiency.
