The 2022 Chrysler 300 boasts electric power steering (EPS) as a standard feature. The EPS feature is designed to reduce the effort required by the driver to turn the steering wheel while also improving vehicle handling and performance. Unlike hydraulic power steering systems, which use hydraulic fluid to transmit torque from the steering gearbox to the wheels, 2022 Chrysler 300 EPS systems use electronic signals to control electric motors that turn the wheels directly. The elimination of hydraulic fluid results in a lighter mechanism that is also more efficient than a traditional system. The electric motor is controlled by an electronic controller, which is controlled by sensors such as road speed and steering angle. The controller sends signals to the motor to adjust how much torque gets applied through each wheel. This torque can be increased or decreased depending on how hard you turn your wheels when driving straight ahead or turning left or right at a corner. This also helps you save money on fuel costs because less energy will be used in moving the car around. The EPS system does not require any maintenance from the driver and lasts longer than a traditional hydraulic system as fewer moving parts are involved, meaning less wear and tear on other components.
