Why Do You Need Four-Wheel Drive?

Four-wheel drive is superior to two-wheel drive when it comes to certain driving conditions. There are also several different types of four-wheel drive.

Four-High drive (4H) allows you to drive at the regular speeds. Use this setting when you are driving on roads or highways that might be a little difficult. It allows you to drive at regular speeds but does give you some added traction when you need it.

Four-Low (4L) needs to be used when you are driving on, or through some very difficult conditions. This might include snow, mud, deep water or sand or any other serious conditions. You use this at a lower speed, such as below 40 mph. It is designed for ultimate traction.

Automatic Four-Wheel Drive (AWD) is a setting that lets the driver adjust between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive as it is needed. It allows the car to sense and adjust by itself automatically in variable conditions. This might happen if there is patchy snow and ice on the road since traction is inconsistent and the needs will vary.
