Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive a rear-wheel drive vehicle? The feeling is much different than a front-wheel drive. With FWD vehicles, all the power goes to the front wheels, which means your car pulls forward. With RWD vehicles, the power shifts from the transmission to the rear differential, which pushes your car forward. The difference is the horsepower and acceleration. You can jump ahead quickly in a Dodge Challenge with RWD, for example.

RWD vehicles also handle better when the road conditions are poor in comparison to FWD. However, the best for iced roads or rainy streets is an all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle. These cars shift power to all wheels for better handling and control. For those who travel on long commutes and need fuel efficiency, front-wheel drive is still the best option, unless you need towing power, in which case rear-wheel drive is the better way to go.
