Having A Transfer Case Gives You True 4-Wheel Drive

Two-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, and 4-wheel drive vehicles all operate differently. Obviously, this is most prevalent when it comes to the transmission. One component that is exclusive to the true 4-wheel drive vehicle is the transfer case.

While the 2-wheel drive vehicle has just the transmission and one differential and the all-wheel drive vehicle has a front, rear, and center differential, the 4-wheel drive vehicle has 2 differentials and a transfer case. When the driver switches from 2-wheel drive to 4-wheel drive, the transfer case engages and power is then sent to both the front differential and the rear differential which then distributes it to the wheels. This is what give you true 4-wheel drive.

If you have any other questions or concerns about your transfer case or your transmission in general, then feel free to contact one of the service experts here at Kyners Auto Sales.
