The name differential comes from the root word different. Different speeds or rotation rates need for left and right wheels. In rear or front-wheel drive vehicles, one differential is required. In four or all-wheel drive vehicles two differentials are needed.
The locking differential is popular on off-road vehicles and performance cars. It acts to simulate having a fixed axle for power delivery. Lastly, we have the torque-vectoring differential. It is also called the active differential. It is the most complex and expensive. Found in some high-end rear-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicles.
