what is the meaning of 4x 4 or 4:4 in cars
By Paramdeep Singh 10 October 2009

4X4 means that the power is transmitted to all the 4 wheels of the car rather than the front 2 wheels of a normal car. hence they are useful off-roaders...

Answer by Abhishek 10 October 2009

4x4 means 4 wheels are powered by 4 wheels
4x2 means 4 wheels are powered by 2 wheels
16x4 means 16 wheels are powered by 4 wheels (for trucks/trailers)

Where powered means all of them get engine power to move and are not free wheeling.
