Different Types of Drivetrains

Many people often mistake the drivetrain of a vehicle for the powertrain. In fact, the drivetrain makes up part of the powertrain, which consists of the drivetrain and the engine. The drivetrain is the part of the car that distributes power between the wheels. The type of drivetrain you choose for your car will help determine the driving experience of your car.

  • Front-wheel drive (FWD). This is the most common drivetrain for vehicles and is the optimal drivetrain for efficient driving and long-term reliability. This drivetrain only sends torque to the front wheels of the car.
  • Rear-wheel drive (RWD). Cars with rear-wheel drive tend to be geared towards performance. Rear-wheel drive cars only send power to the rear wheels, resulting in thrilling acceleration and cornering.
  • Four-wheel drive (4WD). This drivetrain sends power to all four wheels evenly at all times, which results in superior control and traction for off-road driving and low-grip surfaces like snow and mud.
  • All-wheel drive (AWD). Vehicles with all-wheel drive also send power to all four wheels, but the power distribution varies depending on the current driving needs. You can choose Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC), an advanced all-wheel drivetrain with predictive technology, on Mitsubishi vehicles like the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander.
