In the past, this technology was most significantly used in large trucks, Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV's), sports cars and other mean machines. With the passage of time, the AWD has penetrated into commercial everyday cars too.

As the name portrays, all-wheel drive technology is one which enables the engine to control all the axles of the automobile.

So, the power for self-propelling is distributed to all-wheels. This helps the vehicle move on difficult terrains and rough roads easily, obtain maximum stability on slippery and snowy surfaces, and provide traction.

Note that 'all-wheel drive' means all the wheels are power controlled by the engine, regardless of the number of wheels the vehicle has.

This concept applies to trucks which are used to carry tons of luggage and material. On the other hand, 'four-wheel drive' refers to only four wheels that are provided with power, which is most common in cars.
