BorgWarner has announced it is supplying its Torque-on-Demand transfer case with vehicle dynamic control (VDC) technology for the 2017 and 2018 Dodge Challenger GT.
Dodge claims it is the first American muscle coupe with all-wheel drive and the transfer case helps provide enhanced vehicle dynamics for driving in any weather or season.
The case employs electro-magnetic actuation to automatically transition between rear wheel drive (RWD) and AWD on demand without driver input. The VDC technology uses sensor inputs including yaw rate, lateral acceleration and steering wheel angle to redistribute the driveline torque to the wheels. When AWD is not needed, the front axle automatically disconnects to improve fuel economy.
