The engine type determines how much power the vehicle produces. There are two types of engines: gasoline-powered and diesel-powered.
Gasoline-powered vehicles use gasoline as fuel and produce less power than diesel-powered cars.
Diesel-powered vehicles use diesel fuel and produce more power than gasoline-powered vehicles.
A transmission is a device that connects the engine to the drive wheels.
There are three types of transmissions: automatic, manual, and semi-automatic.
Automatic transmissions allow the driver to change gears without using the clutch pedal.
Manual transmissions require the driver to press the clutch pedal to shift gears.
Semi-automatic transmissions have both an automatic and a manual mode.
