The Benefits of All-Wheel Drive in Huntington, WV

The time to purchase a vehicle has arrived, which means you have a variety of choices to make. Should you buy new or used? Do you want a sedan, SUV or pickup truck? What sort of transmission are you considering? And that's not to mention available technology and convenience features. Needless to say, it can feel overwhelming.

That being said, though, another choice fewer people think of immediately revolves around drivetrain options. Depending on the bodystyle and brand you're considering, you may find options that include front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. One thing to consider is that each option offers a different driving and ownership experience, so it's important to consider what you're looking for before you decide.

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.
