13. What sort of drivetrain do you prefer? The drivetrain delivers power to the wheels. We have listed all the packages available on over 100 of the best SUVs.
  • When it's an option, adding 4WD or AWD usually adds around $2,000 to the sticker price.
  • All-wheel drive sends power to all four wheels all the time. If one wheel starts to slip, the other three can help out. Maximum forward traction during acceleration and in snow, mud, sand, loose surfaces conditions and over moderate off-road terrain.
  • Front wheel drive vehicles are essentially pulled down the road. FWD provides better traction while climbing hills because the engine's weight is over the front wheels. FWD eliminates the driveline hump on the cabin floor.
  • Rear-wheel drive vehicles are essentially pushed down the road. Since the front wheels don't have to do both jobs of steering and powering the wheels, better handling can be achieved.
  • Four-wheel drive also known as Four by Four, 4WD or 4X4 comes in part-time and full-time systems. Part-time operates in two-wheel drive mode until the driver or a computer puts all four wheels to work. Power is split between all four wheels, giving maximum traction on steep hills, over rocks or through snowbanks.
    Check any, all or none
    All-wheel-drive standard (even on the base price models)
