Even Distribution to Rear Wheels
With Dynamic Torque Control AWD, torque gets distributed evenly to both rear wheels and can engage at any speed. If there is wheelslip left or right, the stability and traction control systems operate simultaneously to stop the slipping of a particular wheel. When the AWD system is not in use the coupler is disengaged, so the vehicle normally operates in front-wheel drive; however, the engine continually turns the driveshaft, which affects fuel efficiency since this adds additional drag.
