This is a really interesting video and educational as well. Why? Well, so many cars these days are all wheel drive, but what does that really mean? How AWD is your modern all wheel drive car? Jason Cammisa is going to tell you about the different systems, their effect on handling, and why what you think you are getting, you might not actually be getting. For instance, the idea of being able to send “all the power to one wheel” is a real misnomer in about every modern system out there, no matter what the salesman at the dealer tells you.
There are three major styles of AWD systems on the market today and all of them act differently and cause the vehicles they are in to act differently as well. That’s whether you are stuck in the mud or trying to haul ass around corners. The technology here and physics are cool.
This is a plainly spoken video that we think you will dig. Not rocket science but also not really well known stuff to most new car buyers. If you are going shopping for a car and think you need AWD for your conditions, make sure you watch this and understand exactly what you are spending your money on.
