The Benefits of All-Wheel Drive | Charleston WV | Near Marmet, South Charleston and Rand

When it comes to purchasing a vehicle, there's much more to consider than just bodystyle and available technology features. Depending on what you're seeking, you may also have to consider what type of engine you'd like, as well as transmission type and even drivetrain.

Popular options like pickup trucks, SUVs and sportier vehicles offer a range of options that include front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. However, if you aren't familiar with these options or haven't considered what your personal needs are, you may not know what the best choice for you is.

Below you'll find a summary of the main benefits that all-wheel drive vehicles provide to their owners. Be sure to check them out and let us know if you have questions.

  • Increased Traction

  • Whether you're driving on the road, off the road or through inclement weather, having power sent to all four wheel means better maneuverability.

  • Increased Resale Value

  • While there are probably exceptions, vehicles that sport all-wheel drive typically sell for more than their front-wheel drive counterparts.

  • Increased Acceleration

  • If you're in it to win it (or simply enjoy the added agility when maneuvering amid traffic), having ability to quickly speed up can be very valuable.

  • Increased Confidence

  • More or less a culmination of the last three points, just knowing that you're safer on the road, have better resale value and can drive with increased precision combine to make all-wheel drive a choice worth considering.
