With the weather starting to deteriorate and driving conditions becoming more challenging in some areas, four-wheel drive (4×4) vehicles are coming into their own for many businesses across the country.
A 4×4 pickup’s extra traction gives it more grip on the road, holding the surface easily, and this gives the vehicle greater stability. This higher level of traction enables 4×4 pickups to tackle difficult driving conditions more easily and to reach places that might otherwise be inaccessible in a standard vehicle. The additional power sent to each wheel allows it to continue at pace on slippery or icy conditions, up or down steep slopes, through mud, sand or snow, and over rocky ground. Their rugged tyres also allow extra grip and can cope better with uneven surfaces.
The stability of 4×4 pickups on the road also give the driver more control of the vehicle (for both on and off road driving), and their elevated height provides better visibility over the road in front, which makes it easier to spot any dangers and obstacles ahead. The weight of the pickup also gives passengers added safety protection if any accidents do occur.
