Here at Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we have many great new models for sale and with our comprehensive new model inventory, we know that you can find the vehicle that’s perfect for you.

We also know that there’s a lot that goes into finding that perfect new vehicle. You have to determine everything from the style and color to the powertrain and the safety features. It’s a lot to consider and we understand that it can be a daunting task. Luckily, as your Baxley, GA car dealership, we’re here to help however we can.

One thing to consider when picking out that next vehicle, whether you buy new or go with a pre-owned option is the drivetrain. Many of our vehicles like a new 2017 RAM model or the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee boast all-wheel or four-wheel drive while other models may only offer front- or rear-wheel drive. Knowing what kind of drivetrain your potential next vehicle has is an important factor.

Rear-wheel drive vehicles typically feature better acceleration and handling since the power is coming from the back and the vehicle is being pushed, not pulled. However, there are benefits to front-wheel drive vehicles as well. Here, you get better traction on the road and when conditions are less than ideal your vehicle will be better equipped to handle them. As for four-wheel drive. This is best for off-roading, which is why many trucks and off-road SUVs employ it. Four-wheel drive sends the engine’s power to all four wheels, however, unlike all-wheel drive, all four wheels turn at the same speed. This method is great for rough terrain but not for smooth roads where you make a lot of turns. However, most modern four-wheel drive systems allow you to toggle them off and on.

To truly experience the differences in the drivetrain and find the right one for you, head on down to our dealership today located at 1859 Golden Isles West.
