The World’s Most Advanced Four-Wheel Drive System
Mitsubishi Motors has been a world leader in 4-wheel drive engineering since 1936 when the Mitsubishi PX33 was first introduced.
In the modern era we have refined and perfected our All-Wheel Control (AWC) system, by building vehicles with proven engineering innovations that have conquered off-road rally and endurance racing competitions the world over. These winning technologies have been transitioned into every AWC-equipped Mitsubishi Motors vehicle. The end result is that your Mitsubishi will provide you with industry-leading stability and traction for every driving situation that Alberta roads can throw at you, and for every season.
AWC – Control You Require
Mitsubishi Motors’ AWC system utilizes an entire suite of advanced and innovative technologies to give you a superior driving experience that you require for both safety and performance across a wide variety of driving and road conditions.
Electronically Controlled Coupling
When wheel slippage is detected, the system directs torque between the front and rear axles as required, to enhance overall traction on slick surfaces. This is especially useful when accelerating from a stop on slippery surfaces, or climbing a hill covered in ice or snow.
Active Stability Control
When the system detects a difference between the intended and actual direction of the vehicle, it automatically reduces engine power and applies brakes independently on the wheels with less traction. This reduces the chance of understeer or oversteer in tough cornering situations, enhancing safety and helping your vehicle stay on its path.
Combined with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, the system prevents the wheels from locking up under heavy braking, or while braking on slippery road surfaces. This allows the wheels to continue turning while stopping in an emergency, keeping you in control at all times.
Driver Selectable Modes
You are always in control with AWC, including the ability to choose how engaged the system is. There are 3 settings available (depending on the model and trim) to optimize your preference for fuel economy and 4-Wheel Drive capability without compromising safety. Available on the RVR and Outlander.
S-AWC – The “S” Stands for Super
Super All-Wheel Control is additional torque vectoring technologies to provide even more predictive handling. When you desire more control, capability, and confidence – S-AWC is there in every situation.
Active Front Differential
Found exclusively on Outlander GT S-AWC, the Active Front Differential limits the differential speed between the right and left front wheels with an electronically controlled clutch when oversteer or understeer is detected, helping you hug the corners exactly how you want to.
Active Yaw Control
This highly advanced system uses real-time data from the steering wheel angle, yaw rate, driving torque, braking pressure and wheel speed to detect excessive rotational force on any given wheel. It applies ABS systems as required to the four wheels to quickly manage wheel speed and maximize traction, providing an enhanced, sporty feel in tight corners, and improved safety when braking or accelerating in slippery or snow-covered turns.
Driver Selectable Modes
Super AWC wouldn’t be super without up to 4 driver selectable modes (depending on the model and trim) to maximize 4-Wheel Drive performance, including specific selections for snow or gravel. Available on the Eclipse Cross, Outlander GT S-AWC, and Outlander PHEV.
