Tag: super all wheel control

A great feature to have on your vehicle in Minnesota is all-wheel drive. This drivetrain gives the car greater stability on slick winter roads and dirt paths. If you are considering a new Mitsubishi from Don Robinson, like the Outlander SUV, you need to check out S-AWC.

Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control system has an advanced function that continually manages driving and braking forces of all four wheels. The Outlander is the most popular Mitsubishi model equipped with S-AWC. In its setup, the Outlander uses Active Yaw Control (AYC) to regulate torque between the left and right wheels.

The Outlander S-AWC system comes with four driving modes. AWC ECO sends torque mainly to the front wheels to enhance fuel economy but will automatically switch to 4WD if you encounter slippery roads. NORMAL mode sends torque to any wheel as needed. When driving in wintery conditions, the SNOW mode can help optimize traction. The fourth mode, LOCK, keeps the system operating in 4WD for better all-terrain performance at all times.

If you choose the Outlander PHEV, it comes standard with S-AWC; however, its system is different than the standard Outlander. It is equipped with a Twin Motor 4WD system along with AYC. It comes with two driving modes: NORMAL and 4WD LOCK.
