Ford all-wheel drive

Ford is a great choice if you are searching for a safe, practical, and reliable car for your next set of wheels. However, you can also choose to get a Ford with special features to make your rides even better. One option to consider as you are narrowing your search for a car is drivetrain. While it might seem like a minor consideration, getting the right drivetrain is important to make sure you get a car with the safety, handling, and efficiency that you need. A Ford vehicle with an all-wheel drive transmission system is a good consideration if you do a lot of off-road driving or require a car that you can rely on to confidently get through snow or sleet and tackle wet roads.

Why is All-Wheel Drive Important?

All-wheel drive is a drivetrain system that gives your Ford a wide range of advantages. AWD is a versatile transmission system that provides benefits in all seasons. However, AWD vehicles are especially suitable for driving in colder climates. The AWD system is made to keep a watch on all four of a vehicle's wheels to stop wheel slipping and, therefore, accidents before they happen. AWD may be offered as a constant drivetrain, or it may be a part-time system that works on demand along with another drivetrain such as rear-wheel, four-wheel, or front-wheel drive. AWD will provide steady power and a smooth ride to cars on dry pavement. It also adjusts power to wheels individually or a set of wheels to help maintain stability and control. If a wheel starts to slide, the system diverts power to the other wheels instead.

How Does All-Wheel Drive Work on a Ford?

Ford uses a unique type of all-wheel drive system called Ford Intelligent AWD. Ford's responsive and intuitive AWD system uses sensors to monitor many pieces of information and collect data as you're driving around. The system monitors the accelerator pedal, brakes, steering wheel angle, and wheel speed to determine if and when power needs to be shifted to either the front or back wheels. If the car detects bad weather conditions, it will send torque to the back wheels.
