Do You Need a Vehicle with Front or Rear Wheel Drive?

Knowing a little bit about the pros and cons of the front and rear wheel drive vehicles can make the task of picking out the vehicle that is right for you so much easier. Which choice is best for you will depend a lot on your driving habits and conditions as well as your budget.

Rear wheel drive vehicles are made for speed and superior handling. Police cars, race cars, and sport style cars are usually rear wheel drive. These vehicles are designed to take a lot of heavy-duty driving without suffering any serious damage. But because they are made for speed and not traction, rear wheel drive vehicles are not the best for getting you through inclement weather conditions.

Front wheel drive vehicles cost less because they are cheaper and easier to build. They also tend to get better gas mileage than rear wheel drive vehicles. They are also more dependable when you are driving on wet or snowy roads. Front wheel drive vehicles do not handle as well at higher speeds, however, due to being more nose heavy.
