Chrysler 300C (Dodge Charger SXT AWD)
Up to 2008 - Magna Steyr MS140 transfer box with Full time all wheel drive, 38/62 torque split front to rear.
From 2009 and on - Automatic AWD using a Borg-Warner 44-40 transfer box and front axle disconnect for MPG.
The front axle will connect under a list of conditions but this does not yet send power to the front, it only prepares for power to be applied. Those conditions are:
- Any recent wheel spin
- Wipers active
- Outside temperatures below 40F
- Traction control set to partial off.
- Transmission in Auto Stick/paddle shifter mode.
The rear axle is always directly coupled to the transmission output in all modes all the time.
Once the front axle disconnect is engaged torque is applied to the front axle only when a rear tire slips via a computer controlled clutch that engages the front driveline.
