Whether you’re traveling in harsh weather conditions or just want the assurance that your vehicle is keeping you safe and secure whatever the road throws your way, it’s important to have an All-Wheel Drive system that has your back. That’s exactly what you’ll find on the Mercedes-Benz family of vehicles, and today we’ll show you the benefits of Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive!
How does 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive work?
Mercedes-Benz has built itself an amazing All-Wheel Drive system, available on nearly every model and trim offered by the brand. 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive works in tandem with your vehicle’s 7-speed transmission, providing power to your front axles through a transfer case located in the transmission itself. To shift power between the front and rear axles that need it, a centrally-located limited-slip differential is also included.
4MATIC All-Wheel Drive features
True to Mercedes-Benz’s status as a leader on the cutting edge of technology, the 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive system is built to give you a more integrated and intuitive experience than most others can replicate. It’s able to direct your Mercedes-Benz vehicle’s torque output to your wheels through its center differential, which helps to provide excellent balance and handling whatever the road has in store for you.
Thanks to 4MATIC Electronic Traction System (pioneered by Mercedes-Benz itself), if you start to lose control on the road your Mercedes vehicle has it covered. It can allocate extra power and torque to the wheels that help with gripping, helping you to get back straight in no time!
