Why Is All-Wheel Drive Important?

An all-wheel drive gives you more confidence for driving on slippery or rough roads. Engineered to improve safety in inclement weather, this type of drivetrain responds to variable driving conditions in real-time. You can drive through rain and snow with more reassurance with a conventional AWD system. When running on an AWD, most pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles get good traction on off-road trails. High-performance sports cars, such as coupes and some sedans, are equipped with custom AWD systems for optimum handling on curved roads. These types of premium vehicles typically have excellent cornering skills thanks to enhanced traction in all four wheels.

How Does All-Wheel Drive Work on a Nissan?

A typical all-wheel drive on a Nissan car works by shifting power away from the front wheels to the rear wheels. Monitoring a handful of parameters relating to traction, multiple sensors activate the transfer of torque between the front and rear axles. Most Nissan models are available with the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system that generates 50/50 torque ratios for superb all-weather performance. The Intelligent AWD only engages the front wheels when you're driving on a dry road with suitable traction. Nissan pickup trucks and SUVs are available with more advanced 4x4 drive systems with full-time, part-time, and shift-on-the-fly options. Driver-activated modes give you more control of the drivetrain settings for these types of versatile vehicles. Limited-slip differentials, Torsen-type differentials, and active transfer cases are some important components that boost the mechanics of AWD systems on Nissan cars. Fine-tuned for the track, the Nissan GT-R sports car is available with the Attesa E-TS AWD for superb handling at fast speeds.
