Which Ford Vehicles Have AWD?

Which Ford Vehicles Have AWD?

Whether you’re planning a trip off the beaten path or another brutal Illinois winter is on the way, now might be the right time to consider upgrading your ride to one that’s equipped with All-Wheel Drive, or AWD. As it happens, Ford offers a wide range of AWD vehicles that will suit any lifestyle, and we have them on our lot at Gillespie Ford! Keep reading for more information about how AWD works and what you can do to begin enjoying its enhanced capability today.

What is AWD?

Simply put, AWD is a drivetrain, or a method by which your engine’s power is distributed. Most vehicles move with throttle only applied to two wheels, either those in front or in back, but AWD can directly turn all four at once. The first type of AWD, part-time, will save fuel by defaulting to two-wheel-drive most of the time, but will engage all four at once when needed. The second type is full-time, which sends power to each of your four wheels at all times. The point of AWD is the increased traction and control it provides — by detecting which wheels have the most grip at any given time and boosting their individual power, the AWD system ensures that you’ll be tackling tough terrain and tricky pavement conditions with ease!

AWD-Equipped Ford Vehicles

It’s commonly thought that AWD is mainly for SUVs, but Ford offers this boost in capability in multiple vehicle classes! For instance, the Ford Fusion is a mid-size sedan, but can be equipped with AWD for enhanced performance when you’re commuting in the middle of a snowstorm. As you can imagine, such a high-powered drivetrain sure does come in handy on the worksite, which is why the F-150 pickup truck also features optional AWD. And if you’re heading out on the open road for a family camping excursion or mountain biking adventure, you’ll want to be well-equipped for any off-roading that becomes necessary. In that case, definitely consider the premiere capability and robust capacity of the AWD Ford Expedition, an SUV that will certainly get the job done. For similar performance with a bit smaller cabin, give the Ford Escape compact SUV a try!

Browsing Our AWD Inventory

The inventory page of our website makes it easy for you to delve into the AWD vehicle you’re interested in! First, choose the “New” or “Pre-Owned” tab at the top of our site depending on which type of car you’re considering. Then, you can choose your model directly or browse our entire selection. If you opt for the latter, have a look at the left-hand side of your screen and try out our “Narrow Your Search” tool, which has filters you can use to dial in your ideal set of wheels. For instance, you can opt to see only vehicles that feature AWD by selecting that option under “Drivetrain.”

Which Ford vehicles have AWD? Now you know! And you can put that newfound information to good use at Gillespie Ford, since we stock a wide selection of AWD Fords that are ready to get the job done no matter where the road takes you. Have a look at our business hours and plan your visit today!

Frank S. was hands down one of the best salesmen I have ever worked with. He was friendly and honest. There were no lengthy negotiations. We agreed on a price quickly and we were out the door. After an unpleasant experience at a different dealership earlier in the day, my faith was restored with the wonderful service I received from Frank and the rest of the staff at Gillespie.

Great Service

Justin the sales rep and Nate the manager were so awesome to work with! They made the process as painless as possible, walked through each step with us and made sure I walked away with a car I loved and a great price. Overall everyone at the dealership was so kind and wanted to make sure we were satisfied with the visit. I even got a call a couple of days after I got the car just to make sure everything was going well so far! Amazing customer service, highly recommend

I came into this dealership with no idea what I wanted for a car or even if I’d be able to get approved for one. But I got to leave with a beautiful 2020 Ford Fusion. I highly recommended Justin! He was amazing and so professional and he knew the right car for me to test drive and I fell in love instantly! Thank you so much for getting me my dream car!!
