How to Determine Which Drivetrain is Best for You

When you’re in the midst of a new car search, it’s important to know what kind of ride quality would best serve your needs. Whether you’re looking for a city commuter, a sporty driver, or something with a bit more off-road performance, our staff at Valone Ford Lincoln Inc is determined to guide you towards the best drivetrain for your needs.

  • Front Wheel Drive: With front wheel drive, the power from the engine of your vehicle is delivered to the front wheels. As a result, the fuel economy tends to be better and it can be easier to maintain traction in snow, but the ride quality might come off as poor to true enthusiasts.
  • Rear Wheel Drive: With rear wheel drive, your vehicle is likely to have a better weight balance. This is what makes more sports cars feel like a more thrilling ride, since the weight of the car is distributed evenly, and the front wheels are free to navigate. However, most rear wheel drive models tend to perform worse in lackluster weather conditions due to a lower traction.
  • Four Wheel Drive: Four wheel drive gives its drivers the option to deliver power to all 4 wheels, or to operate in rear wheel drive to conserve gas. In 4X4, you can experience a more powerful ride across various terrain or road conditions, but it comes with the cost of being a rear wheel drive vehicle with an optional drive mode.
  • All-Wheel Drive: All-wheel drive powers both the front and rear wheels, rather than primarily in rear wheel drive. This allows for a greater display of traction, especially if you choose a model with continuous AWD. Some vehicles offer automatic AWD, which means that they operate in two-wheel drive until traction control is needed.

With plenty of options in our new inventory, there is no better time than the present to determine the best drivetrain for your needs. Plan your visit to explore the options in person with our staff at 10312 Route 60 in Fredonia, NY today!
