How Does Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive Work?

So, how does the Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive system work? This improved drivetrain works to seamlessly allocate power to the wheels on your vehicle that needs that power the most when driving on uneven surfaces. So, when you’re driving around Portland backed by Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® AWD, you’ll have better control and traction during heavy weather such as rain, sleet, or snow so you can get to your destination safely. Another advantage is that it contributes to your vehicle’s overall fuel efficiency and offers support in several other areas including:

  • Braking, acceleration, and steering all depend on the force sent to your car’s tires. By expanding the power distribution from the front or rear wheels to all four, it maximizes the force that can be sent to the road.
  • When you’re headed into a corner, the outside wheels take a longer path than the inside ones. That causes them to rotate at different speeds. The 4MATIC® system monitors wheel spin and makes sure it’s running as it should.
  • Loose dirt, patches of ice, and sudden rain can change a road surface quickly. Luckily, the 4MATIC® AWD system monitors conditions and adjusts brakes and engine output to match. It works with an electronic traction system to maintain control.
  • In high performance driving situations, being able to send different amounts of torque to each wheel maximizes your handling. Luckily, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive does just that.
