Drivetrains transfer power from the engine to the wheels. Gears, transmissions, drive shafts, and differentials are used to transmit the power. Vehicles can be front-, rear-, four-, or all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive vehicles have become popular because they have superior traction on all types of road conditions.
