Have you ever looked at your car’s drivetrain and wondered whether it could handle towing a small trailer? Your drivetrain handles the shift in power from your transmission to your wheels. With front-wheel drive configurations, the power shifts to your front wheels, which is the easiest and most fuel-efficient setup. However, FWD vehicles work best for commuter vehicles and sedans that do not require additional horsepower, power handling, or towing capacity. For those needs, you would want a rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).

Rear-wheel drive vehicles shift power from the transmission to the driveshaft to the rear differential, delivering necessary power for acceleration, agile handling, and towing. You can haul a small trailer with a powerful transmission. However, most sports cars are made with RWD today, and powerful SUVs and trucks have mostly switched to all-wheel drive.

Want to see what it’s like to drive an RWD or AWD vehicle? You can feel the power when you push on the pedal in a muscle car or even a luxury sedan. We’ve got plenty of options to show you at Preferred Preowned North. Stop by in Colorado Springs to take a test drive today.
