Ford all-wheel drive

Buying a new car necessitates making decisions. One choice you'll have to make is what kind of drivetrain you want with your vehicle. You may be familiar with the names of the different drivetrains, but how do they compare, and which one is right for you? If you do a lot of driving in winter weather, you'll probably appreciate having all-wheel drive on your car. All-wheel drive is also ideal for performance and fuel economy. All-wheel drive is available for many Ford vehicles, including trucks, SUVs, and sedans, which you can try out today at our dealership by browsing our new and used inventory.

Why is All-Wheel Drive Important?

Ford owners appreciate having all-wheel drive for a number of reasons. To start, all-wheel drive provides your Ford with additional safety throughout the year. All-wheel drive will give your Ford the ability to brake faster and more easily. It can also aid performance by allowing your Ford to accelerate faster on demand. Because of its performance benefits, AWD is a common choice for sports cars. It can also make taking turns more enjoyable and safer. In the winter, AWD helps a Ford maintain optimal traction on the road. AWD reinforces the tires' grip on the road to keep the wheels from slipping. The drivetrain also maximizes a vehicle's fuel economy by providing constant power to all four wheels. When extra torque and power are not required, all-wheel drive provides the front wheels with slightly more power to ensure a smooth ride and optimal fuel efficiency. If the wheels start to lose traction, AWD responds by sending more torque to the back wheels, which helps the car stay in control and avoids having the wheels slip and skid.

How Does All-Wheel Drive Work on a Ford?

Ford vehicles are outfitted with a special type of AWD system created by Ford called Intelligent AWD. With Intelligent AWD, your Ford will have sensors attached to its wheels that monitor wheel speed and behavior, along with other behaviors in your car, such as the accelerator pedal angle and the angle of the steering wheel. Intelligent AWD also monitors wheel rotation and wheel speed to ensure the wheels are turning at a constant speed. If the sensors determine that a wheel's speed is off or the wheel doesn't have as much traction as it should, the system responds by sending power to the other wheels.
