The Benefits of All-Wheel Drive | Gainesville FL | Alachua, Starke, Ocala & Lake City

You've chosen the brand of vehicle that you're interested in. You've selected whether or not you want a sedan, versus an SUV, van or pickup truck. You even know which trim level you want, complete with technology features and convenience options. But have you considered the drivetrain you'd like to have?

Not every driver fully understands the differences between front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. Each of these options offers a unique style of driving. Plus, not every type of drivetrain is offered on every type of vehicle. That being said, it's important to consider every option available to you.

Below you'll find a summary of the main benefits that all-wheel drive vehicles provide to their owners. Be sure to check them out and let us know if you have questions.

  • Increased Traction

  • Whether you're driving on the road, off the road or through inclement weather, having power sent to all four wheel means better maneuverability.

  • Increased Resale Value

  • While there are probably exceptions, vehicles that sport all-wheel drive typically sell for more than their front-wheel drive counterparts.

  • Increased Acceleration

  • If you're in it to win it (or simply enjoy the added agility when maneuvering amid traffic), having ability to quickly speed up can be very valuable.

  • Increased Confidence

  • More or less a culmination of the last three points, just knowing that you're safer on the road, have better resale value and can drive with increased precision combine to make all-wheel drive a choice worth considering.
