New Ford models are fitted with some of the most advanced technologies available, at a competitive price.
What is Torque Vectoring Control?
This innovative feature is a new, updated version of traction control. It combats wheel spin, to give you grip and purchase on the road. It is seamless and automatic, so it is impossible to tell when the system is at work. It gives you ultimate control, without reducing engine power or restricting the power delivered to the wheels. This avoids the frustration often associated with traction control, which strangles the engine in order to bring the car under control.
Ford Torque Vectoring Control is designed to give you ultimate control on any road surface, with no compromise to power or performance. It is both a safety feature and a means to enhance the car’s performance. Keen drivers especially will welcome the added surge of acceleration you get in cars fitted with Torque Vectoring Control, compared to traction control.
How it works
Torque Vectoring Control uses the same sensors as traction control to detect when a wheel is about to spin. It then applies gentle braking pressure to bring the speed of the wheel back to what it should be. It kicks in automatically, usually when you are driving sportily, and nips wheel spin in the bud. This reduces the chance of understeer which enhances the car’s handling abilities, and it can also prevent tyre wear.
