2022 Chrysler 300 All-Wheel Drive Technology With Front-Axle Disconnect

Nov 25,2022

The 2022 Chrysler 300 is available with all-wheel drive and a front-axle disconnect. The system offers the best of both worlds, providing power and torque distribution to the rear wheels when needed. This allows for better fuel efficiency in normal driving conditions but also allows for more traction when needed in off-road situations. The system's control unit is integrated into the vehicle's electronic control module. It monitors multiple vehicle sensors, including the steering angle sensor, throttle position sensor, and brake pedal switch input, to determine how much torque needs to be sent to each axle at any given moment. The 2022 Chrysler 300 front-axle disconnect feature allows the driver to remove power from the front axle when it's not needed, such as in flowing traffic, during highway cruising, or while towing a trailer. This reduces parasitic losses in the drivetrain by eliminating the need for an open differential between the front wheels and axles. When the car is in rear-wheel drive mode, only half of the powertrain components are engaged. The other half remains inactive until instant torque demand arises, at which point it can engage within milliseconds to provide added torque at the rear axle.
