Best Answer

a 4 wheel drive vehicle has the options of engaging 2 or 4 wheel drive when you need 4 wheel drive.for example to get out of mud .

all wheel drive means that all wheels constantly have power to them.there are no options except tha they work all the time. all wheel drive is usually on highway cars not off road cars, and all wheel drive basically helps with traction and braking in inclement weather. so pretty much if ya are stuck in mud in all wheel drive, that's pretty much where you are going to stay until you are towed

What is the difference between all wheel drive and front wheel drive?

To get a car to move the power from the engine has to be transferred to at least two of the cars wheels on the same axle. If these two wheels are at the front then the car is a front wheel drive, if the two wheels are at the back then it is a rear wheel drive. Some modern cars however now have mechanisms that deliver power to all four of the wheels at once, this is a four wheel or all wheel drive.

What is the difference between four wheel drive and all wheel drive?

As it turns out, "all-wheel drive" refers to vehicles that have permanently engaged or automatically engaging four-wheel-drive capability. "Four-wheel drive" implies the vehicle has manually engaging, temporary four-wheel drive. Your confusion is justified -- the auto industry, in their infinite wisdom, created these seemingly interchangeable terms. The major difference is that most "true" four-wheel-drive vehicles also have a "transfer case" that can provide both a "high range" and a "low range" gear ratio from the engine to the wheels. High is used for slippery conditions on the road, while low is exclusively for off-road use.
