How does Ford’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system work?

Features and functions of Ford Intelligent All-Wheel Drive 

In areas with as rugged and varied landscapes as Edmonton, your adventures aren’t just relegated to the pavement – in fact, even when they are, there are conditions like snow, rain and sleet to combat as you drive. That’s why Ford’s Intelligent AWD system is such a welcome addition to the line, as it’s able to give you control over every situation you come across. Come with Sherwood Ford today as we show you the features and functions of Ford Intelligent All-Wheel Drive! 

Ford Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and Four-Wheel Drive operation 

Ford takes the “Intelligent” component of its all-wheel drive system very seriously, as it uses sensors to monitor changing road conditions and change your speed, torque and throttle response accordingly. This system can react in mere milliseconds after you might start to slip or lose grip, and always gives traction to the wheel or axle that needs it most.

Of course, if you need assistance in harsher environments, give Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive (4WD) a try; this offers torque response and power shifting on rocks, grass and snow, making it much better equipped for off-roading than All-Wheel Drive. Even so you can’t go wrong with either!  

Which Ford models have Intelligent AWD or 4WD?  

Each of the following Ford vehicles are outfitted with Intelligent All-Wheel and Four-Wheel Drive, either standard or as an available feature. Best yet, most of them are available at Sherwood Ford!
