Should I get an all-wheel drive vehicle?

If there's one thing the drivers of central New York state cities like Syracuse and Liverpool can tell you, it's that weather can get rough. When the snow's coming down, the last thing you want to be worrying about is whether or not your car will stay on the road. When you drive home in a car equipped with all-wheel drive, you have the extra tool you need to hit the road with peace of mind.

What is All-Wheel Drive and How Does it Work?


All-Wheel Drive (AWD) is designed to provide more traction in those moments when you need it. Onboard computers monitor your vehicle's wheels along with the road. If they detect that your vehicle's struggling, your all-wheel-drive system will direct extra power to the affected wheels.

This extra power will boost your vehicle's traction and performance, giving you the extra jolt of muscle you need to power through whatever harsh conditions you're dealing with. When winter comes around, a set of snow tires helps. A set of snow tires backed up by a high-quality all-wheel drive system? It can make all the difference when you're navigating the weather-stricken roads of Clay and North Syracuse.

The best part? It's not hard to find a good car that delivers all-wheel driveability. Many vehicles, including a wide array of different makes and models, offer all-wheel drive as an optional upgrade. That means you can enjoy the benefits of your favorite car coupled to the benefits of AWD.
