One important feature that is often overlooked when purchasing a vehicle is whether you would like an SUV with four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. While the two features are similar and not everyone knows the difference between the two, the two features enable your Land Rover to go about a particular task but go about it in very different ways. Four wheel drive sends power to each wheel individually for power and traction. These systems are typically found on vehicles intended for off-roading and handling uneven terrain. Four wheel drive does not need to be on at all times and can be engaged when needed. All -wheel drive is recent technology and much more prevalent in cars. All-wheel drive is on at all times and is monitored by an internal computer system. When driving on the highway, the system will keep most of the power in the back of the vehicle and if conditions decline, the system will automatically send the traction to all four wheels to prevent slippage. The driver doesn't need to do a thing to maintain control. You can see a variety of vehicles at our Florida Land Rover dealership  that has either all-wheel or four-wheel drive.

The two technologies are useful in different road conditions. Depending on what you're intending to do with your vehicle from Land Rover Orlando, you may want to consider the advantages of both. Four-wheel drive provides more traction and control to the drive. It is heavy and doesn't work as well on highway conditions.  The 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport has four wheel drive and is, therefore, ideal for any and all of your adventures. All-wheel drive is ideal for many sports vehicles and adds a margin of safety as it automatically adjusts almost instantaneously depending on the road conditions. All-wheel drive is great for wet conditions like snow, ice, or other slick conditions, but if you're looking to climb over large rocks, you're better off with four-wheel drive.
