Benefits of Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive

While many all-wheel drive systems are nothing more than an all-wheel drive mechanism added to a two-wheel drive vehicle, 4MATIC all-wheel drive is fully integrated with the drive system and most vehicle systems. That means when wheel slip occurs and traction is compromised, the many Mercedes-Benz active safety and driver assistance features work in cooperation with the all-wheel drive system.

Through 4MATIC all-wheel drive, torque is distributed to both front and rear wheels through a center differential in normal driving conditions. When those conditions change, 4MATIC instantly reacts by sending power to the wheels with the most grip to provide the best traction possible. As you continue to drive with 4MATIC AWD, you’ll quickly gain confidence behind the wheel, no matter what Chicago winters throw  your way.

How Does 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive Work?

A major component within 4MATIC all-wheel drive is the 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS). An innovation pioneered by Mercedes-Benz, 4-ETS is responsible for sending power to wheel with the best grip. 4-ETS utilizes the same wheel-speed sensors as the Antilock Braking System and Electronic Stability Program to detect wheel spin. When the system detects a slipping wheel, 4-ETS sends torque to the gripping wheels so the engine’s power is not wasted on wheels without traction. As the slipping wheels regain traction, torque will redistribute to those wheels.
