How does Mitsubishi Outlander AWD system work?

Unlike many other SUVs and crossovers, the all-wheel control system in the all new Mitsubishi Outlander has three different modes, which let the driver choose the right power balance for front and rear wheels, depending on the road conditions.

Eco Mode

Driving the Outlander in Eco mode lets you maximize the vehicle’s petrol mileage by saving all-wheel drive only for when it’s needed most. In Eco mode, all the torque is directed to the front wheels, unless the vehicle happens to hit an extra-slippery patch of road.  As soon as the vehicle encounters slippery conditions, the system immediately reverts to all-wheel drive, sending power to the rear wheels for better traction and stability.

Auto Mode

Auto Mode keeps the Outlander in all-wheel drive mode, but like Eco Mode, it’ll automatically adjust to match the road conditions as you drive. 

Lock Mode

For when things really, really get tough. Lock mode feeds more torque to the rear wheels to boost all-terrain capabilities with maximum traction. This is not recommended for use during everyday driving! Lock Mode is best for actual off road driving, or for getting the Outlander unstuck from slippery and muddy conditions.
