Explanation of Solution

Given information:

What results from having different axle ratio on the front and rear of a 4WD vehicle when it is operating in 4WD?

  1. Poor handling on dry surface.
  2. Driveline windup.
  3. Mechanical damage to the driveline.
  4. All of the above.

4WD system is capable of transmitting torque to all the wheels of the vehicle. All wheel drive cars do not offer two speed ratios as in case of 4WD. Passenger cars and smaller SUVs are common all-wheel drive vehicle. AWD is installed in vehicle to offer good handling and it offers a smooth drive in all weathers. It helps in increasing the vehicle traction and ability of handling. The vehicle only touches the road surface. The equal distribution of load on four wheels will increase the vehicle handling and prolong the life of tires. 4WD offers different axle ratio on the axles when it is operating in 4WD mode...
