The basic understanding of all-wheel drive (AWD) is that it is a drivetrain that equally transfers power to the front and rear wheels all the time. As defined by Edmunds, All-wheel drive: A drivetrain that employs a front, rear and center differential to provide power to all four wheels of a vehicle. An example of a part-time AWD system would be a vehicle that has a rear-wheel or front-wheel drivetrain, but transfers equal amounts of torque to all four wheels. This is extremely important when seasonal conditions such as rain, snow, or mud are detected.
Mitsubishi’s takes AWD to another level with its all-wheel control (AWC). The focus isn’t on the torque between all four wheels but the control over all four wheels. All-Wheel Control continually monitors the road and intelligently transfers power to the wheels with the most traction to improve handling in the most challenging conditions, including driving on snow or ice. Active Center Differential (ACD), Active Stability Control (ASC), and a new sport anti-lock Brake system are components of AWC offered by Mitsubishi.
The AWC system was originally introduced in 2001 with the Mitsubishi Evolution VII. Since then, the all-wheel control system has continued to develop into S-AWC (Super All-Wheel Control).
AWC is part of a suite of safety features Mitsubishi is constantly improving. Knowing safety is always top of mind, many models include additional features such as Multi-view Camera System, Adaptive Cruise Control and more. Each model and trim level offer different features.
