A 4×4 is a car with a drivetrain that allows all four wheels to get power from the engine at the same time. That extra strength can come in handy during different driving conditions, like off-roading or slippery weather.
Some newer cars come with an automatic four-wheel drive feature that turns on when necessary, while others require the driver to select four-wheel drive mode themselves.
The Powertrain of a four-wheel drive system works by distributing energy from the engine to the front and rear axles through a transfer case. The specifics depend on what type of vehicle you have. To put it simply, each axle has its own differential. This allows the wheels to rotate at varying speeds. The front and rear axles are also connected by driveshafts in order to transmit power from the transfer case- which is located between the passengers seat and engine- all the way back to those big beautiful wheels of yours.
