What are the Differences Between Drivetrain & Powertrain?

drivetrain powertrain BRAND

How are drivetrain and powertrain different? Basically, the drivetrain is what provides power to move the wheels and the powertrain consists of both the motor and the drivetrain.

Powertrain & Drivetrain

You might not know off the top of your head what the advantages are of comparing a drivetrain vs. powertrain however when you recognize the distinctions between both, it will provide you the edge when car purchasing, going to the technician, or when Alex Trebek asks you a Jeopardy question regarding automobile components that make cars move.

In other words, powertrains and drivetrains essentially do the exact same thing. They produce kinetic energy to make your car ‘go’. Now, chances are that you have never truly considered how crucial these moving components are. They’re the unrecognized heroes that get you from point A to point B and they each work in their very own distinct method.


What are the Drivetrain Components?

Often times the terms ‘drivetrain’ and ‘powertrain’ are used interchangeably however, contrary to popular belief, they are not the exact same. So exactly what is the difference between powertrain components and drivetrain components? The most significant difference is the way power is created and distributed to the car.

A drivetrain is not really a single part of your vehicle – it’s a team of drivetrain parts that interact with the engine to move the wheels and different parts of the vehicle to move it into motion. These parts often consist of the transmission, differential, driveshaft, axles, CV joints, and the wheels.


How Does A Drivetrain Work?

This is the order in which power is generated and provided by a drivetrain:

  • The engine will produce power to power a flywheel
  • That flywheel works with the transmission to regulate the quantity of power distributed to various other components of the drivetrain
  • The driveshaft spins to generate power to a differential
  • After that the differential supplies power from all those driveshaft components and boom … your wheels are in motion

What’s in A Powertrain?

If you understood the drivetrain fundamentals, the powertrain basics should be an easy concept to understand, due to the reality that there is just one defining variable that sets them apart. That variable is the engine. In a powertrain, the engine is a part of the many moving elements. If you remember from the paragraph above, the drivetrain works with the engine.

The powertrain encompasses every moving part that is critical to the car’s success. Its sole objective is transforming kinetic energy into propulsion movement. If one of these parts fail your car may experience some uncommon rattling, or shaking.

I got a flat tire on the way to work and MB Roadside assistance was able to tow my car to the dealership within 30 minutes of my calling. Got my tire fixed the same day and was on my way. Thank you David and Team!
