In Grand Theft Auto 4, the way a car's drivetrain and engine are set up can have a drastic effect on occasions such as police chases and enemy gang wars (escaping, for example). This section will break down the different drivetrains along with the cars so you don't need to.

Front Wheel Drive

Front wheel drive (FF) is when a car's engine power is channeled to the front wheels. FF cars cost alot less than others because of less moving parts. There are only a handful of FF cars in GTA 4.

Forklift

In addition, FF cars tend to have understeer, but great acceleration and good offroading capabilities.

Rear Wheel Drive

Rear wheel drive (FR) is when a car's engine power is sent to the rear wheels. FR cars are more expensive because they tend to have high horsepower and more moving parts. FR setups are used in drifting, oval racing, and drag racing. There are tons of FR cars in GTA 4.
