The vehicles generally have key systems that play an off role. It is very important to understand them. In order to get true off-road experience with SUV cars, it is important to explore the latest SUVs.

Here is a brief lesson on how to drive better off-road

4X4 high:  there is huge utilization of all-purpose four-wheel-drive mode in most cases. As against 2 wheel drive, there is generally engagement of all four wheels and potencies by the powertrain.

4X4 low:  when we engage lower gear ratio, four-wheel drive mode delivers high torque to the wheels. It also lowers down the maximum speed. It is helpful in slower off-road, rock crawling.

Differential locking: it is popularly known as “diff lock”. It is basically the speed at which the wheel runs. In the 4X4 standard mode, the wheel spins at a different speed in order to compensate patchy terrain. When there is a lock-in differential, all the wheels move at the same speed.

Approach angle: It is the maximum incline angle that a vehicle can climb or descend without any contact of any part of the body with the driving surface.

Wheelbase: there should be a distance  from the center of a truck’s front wheel to the center of the rear wheel

Wheel travel: it is the maximum distance in which a wheel can move up and down. The more they travel, the more capable is the suspension system and better on and off-road traction.
