Finding the Right Drivetrain System That Fits Your Vehicle Needs

At O’Brien Mitsubishi of Normal, we offer three different types of drivetrains on our Mitsubishi vehicles, all of which offer something different for various situations and conditions. Depending on your lifestyle and your day-to-day, you might need your car to perform in a certain way, which is why we’re here to explain the differences between drivetrains.

Your options for drivetrains include front-wheel drive (FWD), rear-wheel drive (RWD), and all-wheel drive (AWD). Most of our smaller vehicles like the Mitsubishi Mirage and Mitsubishi I-MIEV come with standard FWD. This means that the engine only supplies power to the front wheels. Since these vehicles aren’t very heavy and you probably won’t find yourself racing them or going off-road in them, this is really a very convenient drivetrain to have on your vehicle. This type of drivetrain became widely produced on vehicles to specifically help people drive better in the snow.

Rear-wheel drive, on the other hand, is used on some of our bigger and more powerful vehicles such as our Mitsubishi Outlander and Lancer. This type of drivetrain is designed to only supply power to the rear-wheels. It is sometimes often referred to as a more fun way to drive as you can do things like burnouts, fishtails, and doughnuts (not recommended). All-wheel drive is another available option we offer on most of our Mitsubishi Outlander and Mitsubishi Lancer vehicles. A more modern drivetrain and sophisticated drivetrain, AWD allows all four wheels to receive power from the engine at once. This is a great way to conquer the road with confidence in bad weather or conquer sketchy terrain if you are going off-road for some reason.

Now, there is another drivetrain that often gets confused with AWD, and that is 4WD or often referred to as 4X4. The two drivetrains are quite similar, the one big difference is that the 4WD has to be engaged by the driver for it to work or you will only be driving in 2WD. Another big difference between the two is that most AWD systems use sensors to determine which wheels can receive more power for better traction whereas the 4WD always sends equal power to all the wheels all the time. A big perk about 4WD systems are that they are much more heavy-duty, in turn, making them great for towing and hauling big time weight.

Come see us at our dealership and let our fine sales staff explain more in-depth about what drivetrains we offer on what vehicles and what might be the best choice for you. O’Brien Mitsubishi of Normal serves the Bloomington, Peoria, Pekin, IL area and we look forward to serving you!
