They are better able to accelerate and maintain traction in snow and ice thanks to a drivetrain that provides power to all the wheels and not just the front wheels.

A major difference between four-wheel drive vehicles and all-wheel drive vehicles is that you need to manually shift the four-wheel drive vehicle into four-wheel drive mode. You can shift into four-wheel drive mode when it is snowy or when you are driving on rough terrain.
