When it comes to the northeastern driving elements we face throughout the year, Hagerstown and Winchester, VA drivers, know just how crucial it is to have an optimized grip of the road. For the commuters in Waynesboro, Chambersburg, PA, and Frederick, MD who are looking for enhanced traction and control for their daily work commute or weekend driving adventures will surely find their vehicle match with one of the many Nissan models that include All-Wheel Drive at the Hamilton Nissan dealership. But if you're wondering what the difference is between All-Wheel-Drive and Four-Wheel-Drive, here's a brief rundown.

All-Wheel-Drive is an available option for compact sedans, crossovers, and SUVs that allow drivers to maintain firm traction on the roads by automatically responding to each wheel's need for grip by sending individual power to each tire when loose terrain or a slippery surface is detected. It increases control throughout your commute especially during periods of severe weather.

An All-Mode Four-Wheel-Drive is switchable from Two-Wheel Drive and is more common in Nissan SUVs and Truck models. When needed for the off-road elements, just engage the 4x4 to gain more traction for the rugged terrain you come across. Typically used when driving trails or loose surfaces.

What Nissan Cars are All-Wheel Drive?

Depending on the trim level, many of our models have the All-Wheel-Drive feature. You will find All-Wheel-Drive in models like the Nissan Juke, Murano, GT-R, Armada, Rogue, and the Rogue Select.

Which Nissan Cars have 4x4?

Many SUV and truck models like the Nissan Pathfinder, Frontier, Titan, and Titan XD have 4x4 capabilities. Great for the adventurous driver or the everyday worker looking for more power and traction to take on their towing needs.
