Front wheel drives are cheaper to build and much lighter,due to extra parts that go into building a rear wheel drive car.Four cylinder engines can deliver more power through the shorter drive axles as opposed to a longer drive shaft to the rear wheels.They are more stable and more fuel efficient.Since the government set standards on the fuel mileage of passenger cars,every ounce of weight taken off of a vehicle is important.
All cars can be turned into a non front drive car.
front wheel they can be change to rear wheel theu can be changed but mostly front wheel drive
An electric fan is needed on front-wheel drive cars
You mean, what cars don`t come with front wheel drive. Most to-day are FWD.
The Chevy camaro is not front wheel drive but rear wheel drive as most sports cars.
You can. However, you have to buy the correct type. Rims made for real wheel drives typically do not fit front wheel drive cars. You have to find rims made for front wheel drive cars. Some stores simply do not carry them.
Either a transverse engine for front wheel drive cars (and the occasional rear engine, rear wheel drive car), or a longitudinal engine for front/mid-engine, rear wheel drive cars.
All Chevrolet Celebrity cars are FWD (front wheel drive).

If they are the same size, of course.
it is on the transmission of a rear wheel drive car and on the front wheel assembly of a front weel drive car. It may also be mounted on the transmission on front-wheel drive cars.
All 1976-1979 Cadillac Sevilles were rear wheel drive. Front wheel drive wasn't used on these cars.
It's not impossible, but it is extremely impractical.
Economy and other smaller cars are more commonly front wheel drive. Light/medium duty trucks, luxury cars, SUVs, et. al. are more commonly rear wheel drive.
No, not feasibly. Front wheel drive cars typically have a transverse engine (as opposed to a longitudinal engine found in rear wheel drive cars) and a transmission with a different output location that that found on a rear wheel drive car... I won't say such a conversion is impossible, but it's highly impractical.
rear, as far as i know BMW has never made a front wheel drive car but they do also make all wheel drive cars
You said it right there, they are transversely mounted. The engine is made to bolt up to a front wheel drive transmission and all accesories are driven differently.
Front wheel drive cars are better in snow.
Honda s2000 chevrolet corvette morgar +4
They are front wheel drive!
No. BMW makes rear-wheel-drive cars, because they handle better.
The power is being routed to either the front or the rears. I believe that the front wheel drive is more commuter car friendly and the rear wheel drive leans a little toward sporty/performance based cars.
To get a car to move the power from the engine has to be transferred to at least two of the cars wheels on the same axle. If these two wheels are at the front then the car is a front wheel drive, if the two wheels are at the back then it is a rear wheel drive. Some modern cars however now have mechanisms that deliver power to all four of the wheels at once, this is a four wheel or all wheel drive.
Cardan shafts are used differently in different vehicles, varying greatly in cars with distinct configurations for front-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and the previously mentioned front-engine rear-wheel drive.
