So, What’s a Drivetrain?
Something many of us too often ask ourselves when we’re out on the road is, “Can my car handle this type of driving/area?”
Well, that all depends.
Most of the time, we really don’t know the answer to the question, so we assume that it probably can withstand a few bumps here, and there. However, what ends up happening is that we do a lot more damage to our vehicle than intended. When this happens, we ultimately pay the price in terms of no longer having a working part, or having to pull a pretty penny out of our savings account. We believe it’s time we learned how, or what, our car can really handle. A vehicle’s drivetrain is a good indicator of what kind of terrain it can navigate. “What are the different types,” you ask?
First of all, we aren’t going to explain everything in this one post. Instead, we’re going to break this up into separate sections so that we can place more information into each segment. For this post, we’re going to label the types of handling that you can find in all vehicles. However, that’s not to say that each of these are present in each individual car. Rather, there are certain cars that come a specific, or number of handles.
So let’s kick this off by labeling the types of drivetrains you’ll encounter when purchasing a new or used vehicle:
- Front-Wheel Drive
- Rear-Wheel Drive
- All-Wheel Drive
- Four-Wheel Drive
Be sure to check in next week as we go through what exactly these types of drives bring to you, and your vehicle! Until then, check out other auto car tips and tricks on our blog, or schedule a maintenance appointment at your local Ed Payne Rio Grande Valley car dealership.
