Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4™) AWD

The Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ AWD system gives drivers a unique advantage by sensing the amount of torque you need in each of your wheel axles and adjusting accordingly. This can help enhance driving in both low-traction or dry conditions by:

  • Allowing variable front-to-rear distribution of engine torque to send power to the wheels in need of traction.
  • This system also allows the clutches to activate separately allowing for variable amounts of torque to be distributed to each rear wheel independently.

This design allows the system to precisely meet traction needs and enhance stability in conditions such as ice and snow.
