Get the Right Nissan Drivetrain System for Your Next Adventure

When you're wondering what your next car should be, you may only be focusing on the brand, features, price, color, or fuel economy. You may not even think about which drivetrain your car should have. At Performance Nissan, located a short drive from Parsippany, you'll have more than one drivetrain among the Nissan line of sedans, SUVs, and trucks in Butler, NJ.

If you live down the road in Totowa and you're unsure which drivetrain you should get, your team of Nissan experts will highlight your three options: all-wheel, four-wheel and two-wheel drive. Before you investigate new Nissan inventory, read up on the differences between these three drivetrains.

  • Two-Wheel Drive: Choosing two-wheel drive, or 4x2, means selecting the most common operating system. You'll either have front-wheel or rear-wheel drive. The purpose is to send all the power to two of the four wheels. Most passenger vehicles (sedans and crossovers) have front-wheel drive because it's better for hills. If it's a pickup truck or performance car, it will use rear-wheel drive because of the improved steering and towing thanks to equal weight distribution.
  • All-Wheel Drive: If you live in an area of West Milford that suffers from a variety of seasonal road conditions, you may want to consider investing in a Nissan model that uses all-wheel drive. This system is more advanced than two-wheel drive because it actively sends extra power to whatever wheel is in need. Having the option to deliver power to all four wheels at once will increase your Nissan's traction, on-road grip, and overall stability. It will even help you accomplish light off-roading.
  • Four-Wheel Drive: Do you have rough terrain in your driving forecast near Wayne, NJ? Then there's no better drivetrain to have than four-wheel drive, or 4x4. This system allows drivers to switch between two-wheel and four-wheel drive when roads demand it. It will help adapt the balance of power between your rear and front wheels automatically. The most common body style to use four-wheel drive is Nissan trucks for an effective harmony of off-roading and efficiency.

At Performance Nissan, you will have three excellent options for how your Nissan car, truck, or SUV will successfully adapt to New Jersey roads. If you know which drivetrain matches your style of driving, shop for a Nissan with that specific drivetrain installed, and then plan a test drive at Performance Nissan, serving Oak Ridge, NJ.
