Torque On DemandNext
Manualy lockable in low gear ratio (2:48:1).
100% of driving force is transferred to rear wheels) on normal paved road. When the system detects a slip in the rear wheels, a proper percentage of driving force is transferred to front wheels.
On normal road surface In vehicle with existing part time transfer case, when a driver turns
the steering wheel to park in the 4WD mode, the vehicle may halt sensation of tight corner
braking phenomena. However, in vehicle with TOD system, this phenomena does not occur
and the driving force is properly and automatically distributed.
On paved road with high speed Driving at high speed on roads such as highway mainly uses
rear wheels as driving wheel. At this moment, some of torques is also distributed to front
wheels so that the vehicle could maintain safe ground grab capacity against side winds and
rain. Distribution ratio: 15% for front wheels and 85% for rear wheels.
When turning on the road with low friction rate During cornering on roads such as unpaved,
snowy, icy and muddy, ground grab capacity is increased by distributing required torque
and, at the same time, comfortable steering operation is maintained by controlling the
ground grab capacity at high level.
Distribution ratio: 30 % for front wheels and 70 % for rear wheels.
When climbing or starting off on the road with low friction rate In order to secure the
maximum ground grab capacity and driving force during climbing or starting off on the roads
such as unpaved, snowy and icy road, the system controls the driving force to distribute
properly in full 4WD mode. Distribution ratio: 50 % for front wheels and 50 % for rear wheels.
