Best Mileage 2014 AWD & 4WD Vehicles

While All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) is essential when inclement weather and rough roads are the norm, it takes its toll on fuel economy. Take two identical vehicles – car, truck, SUV or crossover – one with AWD and one with RWD or FWD. The AWD version will get less miles per gallon (MPG) due to the added weight and friction losses inherent in the drivetrain. The good news is that auto manufacturers are working feverishly to make AWD vehicles more efficient.

A6_TDI-2014-white Today’s powerful turbodiesel engines – as in the chart topping 328d xDrive and splendid Audi A6 TDI (shown at right) – have changed the game. Traditional 4×4 trucks are great for off-roading, but when it comes to getting great mileage, AWD sedans, wagons and crossovers take the cake.
