Powertrain covers special component that brings power to the wheels such as engine, transmission, and differentials. This would also include the driveshaft as well as velocity joints. Components that wear out aren't included in fluids, battery, and clutch for manual transmission. Bumper-to-bumper warranty usually covers things such as air-conditioning, audio, and electronics system. This type of warranty is considered comprehensive and doesn't last for very long. The biggest difference is the powertrain covers the powertrain while the bumper-to-bumper addresses many other important features.
