Most cars are not going to be four wheel or all wheel drive. Trucks are a great example of this. Most trucks are what is considered rear wheel drive. This means that when the engine is engaged, the rear wheels are going to be the wheels that spin and propel the truck forward. The reason for this is that trucks tend to be front heavy and putting the power in the back helps to balance things out.
Smaller cars tend not to be rear wheel drive. Rear wheel drive cars tend to be a bit slippery when it comes to driving in the snow and may require extra weight in the back or the boot.
