How The Ford F-150 Raptor Gives You The Best of 4WD And AWD In One Package

Yes, there is the actual difference between all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. It is not just marketing jargon automakers use to describe a same thing.

Basically, AWD works when there’s the drivetrain that uses the front, rear and center differential, whereas 4WD has th drivetrain that has just two differentials and the transfer case that provides equal power to the all four wheels.

Think Subaru Forester vs. Jeep Wrangler. And Ford managed to accomplish some brilliant engineering when it came to its new F-150 Raptor. Well, the off-road animal employs both AWD and 4WD, as well as the RWD. Really?

Is this even possible? Of course, thanks to the state-of-the-art transfer case, for starters. Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained fame really does, uh, and explain things best here. He’s the trained engineer, after all.

But what is evidently clear about the F-150 Raptor is its ability to meet the many driving conditions owners will require. Towing?

Clearly not the problem, and nor is rock crawling, sand dune hopping, snow, even boring dry, flat pavement. Hey, with the total of 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque on hand, chances are Raptor owners will want to take the full advantage of that power.

But they should also be aware of that clever driveshaft. It is what makes all of those hardcore adventures, on- and off-road, possible.
