What Do Ford's AWD and 4WD Systems Have to Offer?

If you're looking for a reliable vehicle with great capabilities in a variety of driving conditions, then be sure to check out the all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive Ford models we have available. Here at Balise Ford of Cape Cod we have a variety of vehicles available that are equipped with Ford's excellent AWD and 4WD, which help provide amazing performance through all kinds of weather and on all kinds of roads.

The Ford Intelligent 4WD and AWD systems allow you to easily adapt to changing road conditions so you can enjoy a safe and exciting ride at all times. These systems monitor the road conditions to determine how much traction each wheel has and needs. Then they send torque to the wheels that need the most  so the vehicle can always maintain traction and the driver can enjoy a safe, controlled drive along with excellent handling and performance at all times.

Some of the vehicles with the Intelligent 4WD system also come with the Terrain Management System. This system allows you to adjust the driving dynamics at any time to match the current terrain. So if you're caught in a snowstorm on your way home or you're transitioning from road to trail, you can shift the settings right away to make sure you're ready for anything that comes your way.

Another great Ford system is the Control Trac 4WD system. This is the system can really take on just about anything. It's a great option for seriously adventurous drivers because it provides the capabilities you need to get through rough terrain and conditions. It uses 4WD when you needs extra control, then it can switch back to 2WD when you're back on a dry road; that way, you can go just about anywhere.

If any of these systems sound like something you want to have in your next vehicle, be sure to check out the following models:

  • What's the difference between AWD and 4WD?

    These two systems function differently, but the most important thing to know is that AWD is active at all times and provides increased traction in all conditions, while 4WD is only engaged when needed and can provide better traction in more extreme conditions.
  • Why should I choose a 4WD or AWD vehicle instead of a 2WD one?

    While many drivers get along fine with a 2WD vehicle, AWD and 4WD models offer additional control. This means that in bad weather or on rough roads, a 4WD or AWD vehicle will provide better performance than a 2WD vehicle, often leading to a safer drive.
  • What makes Ford's AWD and 4WD systems better?

    Unlike other AWD and 4WD systems, Ford's systems react to the conditions around them in real time. They monitor the road conditions along with the traction of each wheel, then adjust power accordingly to prevent slippage and provide a safe ride and great performance.
