There is a misconception among people that if their vehicle is front wheel drive or maybe all wheel drive, they don’t possess differentials. This is not true because you can find front and rear differentials on all the wheels. This means that every car and truck on the road has some sort of differential. Some vehicles are built where the differential is built into the trans-axle while some builds separate the components that connects the transmission output to the drive wheels.
When turning a corner, the vehicle's wheels on the outside of the turn, drive farther and rotate faster than the wheels on the inside. What allows the drive wheels to turn at different speeds while still supplying torque to the wheels is the differential. To accomplish this, the differential uses a combination of gears that can rotate in relation to one another while still transmitting power. It may sound a bit complicated, but the differential is an important part of what enables your car or truck to drive around a curve without having the tires skip and slide along the road.
