Why Buy a Car with Rear-Wheel Drive?
Shopping for a new vehicle can be tough process. This is especially true when you’re not quite sure what to look for. At Ed Payne Motors, we’re here to help. Our previous post discussed the different types of driving systems you’ll find throughout our various Rio Grande Valley car dealership locations. Today, we’ll dive a little deeper into what a rear-wheel drive system can do, and whether or not it may be a wise choice for your next vehicle purchase.
In a vehicle with rear-wheel drive, the vehicle is driven by — you guessed it — the rear wheels! This type of drive system is commonly found throughout our extensive range of trucks, as it can accommodate higher engine outputs and higher vehicle weights. With better balance, and thus, better handling, RWD is ideal for drivers who crave power and performance in their vehicles. In fact, the vast majority of luxury sports cars run on a rear wheel drive system. While this type of system may not be ideal for certain weather conditions, such as in heavy snow, the South Texas climate is perfect for exploring what RWD can do.
Some other benefits of RWD include:
- Increased traction with acceleration
- Improved cornering response
- Superior braking performance
- Rugged durability
