All-Wheel Drive vs. All-Wheel Control

What Is Mitsubishi All-Wheel Control?

The basic understanding of all-wheel drive (AWD) is that it’s a drivetrain that equally transfers power to the front and rear wheels all the time. As defined by Edmunds, AWD 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.

There are many reasons why to choose a Mitsubishi vehicle, but its All-Wheel Control (AWC) system takes AWD to another level. 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. This drivetrain consists of Active Center Differential (ACD), Active Stability Control (ASC), and a new sport anti-lock brake system.

The AWC system was originally introduced in 2001 with the Mitsubishi Evolution VII. Since then, the AWC has continued to evolve into what is now known as S-AWC (Super All-Wheel Control), an intuitive drivetrain that is available on every Mitsubishi SUV model with the exception of the Outlander Sport, which has standard AWC.
