Is Front-Wheel or Rear-Wheel Drive Best for Your Needs?

Today's cars are made much differently than those earlier models. Back then, Rear-wheel drive was the only way that manufacturers built drivetrains, but it's completely changed now. RWD is actually used more for power, so vehicles that have a need for turbo speed such as American muscle cars will tend to have RWD.

Front-wheel drive developed out of a need for fuel-efficient commuter vehicles, which is why most sedans and compact cars have FWD. In some cases, they may have AWD, which is better for power and dealing with icy road conditions. Newer models are coming out with transitioning drivetrains under xDrive, which is a way to combine fuel efficiency with power by changing the drivetrain setup on the fly.
