AWD vs 4WD vs 4×4: These days SUV vehicles are very much liked. SUV means sports utility vehicle. That is, a vehicle that can go smoothly even on difficult roads. But to make the difficult roads easier, many features are given in the vehicle. One of these features is 4×4. But nowadays you are also hearing words like AWD (All Wheel Drive) and 4WD (4 Wheel Drive) for vehicles. In such a situation, many people remain confused as to what is the difference between them. Here we are going to tell you this difference. 

What is the difference between AWD and 4WD?
The terms all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive can be confusing as both mean the same thing – driving all four wheels. However, there is a difference in the way they work. Actually, AWD or All Wheel Drive is used to drive all the four wheels of the vehicle (simultaneously thrust). Whereas in 4WD, the driver chooses to drive the vehicle running on the 2WD (Two Wheel Drive) system to drive all the four wheels simultaneously through a mechanical system.

What is the difference between 4WD and 4X4?
In fact, 4WD vehicles are also commonly known as 4X4. The 4WD vehicle can move smoothly on off-road driving conditions and on steep hills and low traction roads. The 4WD system is offered in large SUVs and trucks to provide better off-roading. Mahindra Thar is a good example of an upcoming car with 4×4. Whereas the recently introduced Maruti Grand Vitara has been given the feature of all wheel drive.
