Best car buying experience I’ve had
We just purchased a new F350 from Key West Ford, I’ve bought a lot of vehicles in the past and they were by far the best dealership I’ve dealt with. Our salesman Pete Olson went out of his way to make the experience hassle free. Can’t say enough. Thanks Pete, Wes, Gurj and Kelvin. Job well done.

What’s the Different Between AWD and 4WD?

(Posted on Dec 18, 2015 at 04:00PM by Michelle Bogle)
used ford cars trucks vancouver bcWhen purchasing a used vehicle, there are many factors to consider, like engine power, overall size, cargo capacity and standard features. But, there’s also drivetrains, including all-wheel drive (AWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD). Often used interchangeably, there are differences between the two, which can be confusing to car shoppers.

Let’s break it down, shall we?
Differences Between AWD and 4WD
AWD and 4WD operate in different ways:
AWD uses a front, rear and center differential to power all four wheels.
4WD uses two differentials and a transfer case to power all four wheels.
Vehicle Types
Different vehicles have different drivetrains:
AWD is found on cars and CUVs, like the Ford Fusion, Taurus, Flex and Edge
4WD is reserved for trucks and SUVs, like the Ford F-150, Escape and Explorer.
Benefits of AWD and 4WD
Better acceleration in wet, slippery conditions.
Improved traction and towing, especially on wet, steep or unpaved dirt roads.
Added resale value, especially in areas where the terrain requires 4WD or AWD.
Downsides of AWD and 4WD
Added costs when you factor in the price of the 4WD or AWD system. 
Lower fuel economy and increased fuel costs, especially with heavier loads.
Higher maintenance costs, as differentials on AWD/4WD vehicles need oil changes.
Doesn’t improve braking or handling – that’s what good quality tires are for!
A Smart Choice
For cities like Vancouver, which receives a lot of precipitation throughout the year, AWD or 4WD is definitely something to consider. If you plan on regularly driving on unpaved dirt roads as well, AWD or 4WD is a must.
