Automatic all wheel drive. Normally rear wheel drive vehicle. Power is progressively transferred via multi-plate hydraulic transfer clutch to front wheels when slipping occurs. Torque distribution in this case is 65% to 35% rear to front. ABS sensors are used to detect wheelspin. If more traction is necessary, computer locks another clutch in rear axle. If brake pedal pressed, all clutches disengage to allow the ABS to work properly. On takeoff/acceleration the front axle normally engages, proactively, regardless whether wheel slip is detected or not.
