Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™
The Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ adds in a rear differential to vehicles with front-wheel drive. The rear differential is engaged when traction is lost via a multi-plate clutch system. This distributes torque to all four wheels, instead of just two. “Intelligent Control’ removes the lag drivers can experience with traditional all-wheel drive systems when the rear wheels are engaged. Instead of mechanical means, the Intelligent Control System uses an electric motor on the transmission to deliver power.
