Make an Informed Decision on Choosing AWD or 4WD

Off-road capable vehicles have long been fan favorites for Americans of all ages. Now they seem to be more popular than ever. But before you make a decision on which one to buy from our new Nissan inventory, make sure that you know the difference between all-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive.

All wheel drive is most common in cars and crossover vehicles. In this system, the vehicle stays in all-wheel drive mode all of the time. It uses electronic monitoring to monitor the traction of each wheel and will redirect power accordingly when slippage is detected.

4WD is most common in trucks and SUV's. This setup gives the driver the power to determine whether the vehicle operates in 2WD, 4WD, or 4WD LOW. Driving in 2WD will improve gas mileage, but with this setup you then have the option to send power to all four wheels when needed.

So, if you are ready to start looking for your next AWD or 4WD vehicle, come and see our experienced sales staff here at Keifer Nissan of Corvallis and explore all of your options today.
