Toyota Dynamic Torque Control All-Wheel Drive Performance Feature

When you are looking at a new vehicle, performance and safety are often towards the top of any car buyer’s list and factor heavily into your decision. If you are searching for improved performance and enhanced safety, the Toyota Dynamic Torque Control All-Wheel Drive performance feature will augment all of the above, especially when facing winter conditions. We all know that Connecticut winters can be harsh and unforgiving, so when the snow starts to pile up it is important that you have a vehicle that can handle the unpredictable weather and road conditions. The 2015 Toyota RAV4 equipped with Dynamic Torque Control AWD at Gale Toyota will easily surpass your performance and safety expectations in the depths of winter.

Designed and built to enhance performance in any condition, full-time AWD systems hold an advantage over four-wheel drive systems, in that they function without any input from the driver. The Toyota Dynamic Torque Control AWD system continuously and automatically monitors the torque transfer between front and rear axles to improve traction. Working in tandem with Vehicle Stability Control and electric steering, Dynamic Torque Control will thoroughly enrich performance, handling, safety and your overall driving experience.

Torque distribution ratios can range from 100:0 to 50:50 depending on the level of traction and while in normal driving situations your Toyota Highlander will revert back to front-wheel drive to improve fuel economy ratings. When accelerating, the Dynamic Torque Control All-Wheel Drive performance feature will activate AWD to prevent slippage and increase your vehicle’s overall traction and performance. The Toyota AWD system also offers a Sport mode, so you can optimize the ride of your new Toyota model. By switching into Sport mode, you can transfer torque to the rear wheels and reduce the pressure on the front wheels. If understeer is detected, Sport mode will direct even more torque to the rear wheels to increase traction and keep you safe.

In Connecticut, it isn’t a matter of “if” the snow comes it is only a matter of “when”. Toyota models equipped with the Dynamic Torque Control AWD also feature an AWD Lock setting ideal for winter driving. When the snow starts to pile up and poor traction and handling become issues, you can use the Lock setting to fix the torque distribution at 50:50 between the front and rear axles at speeds under 25 mph to maximize your traction. When you pass the 25 mph mark the system reverts back to Auto mode.

Increase the performance, handling and safety of your new Toyota when you opt for the Toyota Dynamic Torque Control All-Wheel Drive performance feature. Whether you are facing dangerous winter weather and road conditions or you simply want to improve your acceleration and handling, Dynamic Torque Control AWD with significantly improve your overall driving experience.
