What is Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® in Northbrook, IL?
Have you ever wondered how your Mercedes-Benz sedan, coupe, wagon, or SUV is able to deliver the exemplary performance it’s known for? One major component is the coveted 4MATIC® all-wheel-drive system. But what exactly is Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC®? The experts at Autohaus on Edens in Northbrook, IL have put together this comprehensive overview so you can find out!
What Does 4MATIC® Include?
With 4MATIC®, you’ll get much more than just an all-wheel-drive system. It was designed to fully integrate with the advanced safety and driving assistance systems of a Mercedes-Benz vehicle. For example, the 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4ETS®) helps send power to gripping wheels if other wheels slip. It can also detect the onset of wheelspin using the same wheel-speed sensors as the Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) and rapidly pulse the brake at the slipping wheel. This then sends torque back to the gripping wheel and applies the engine’s power to the road.
The transfer case is integrated within the automatic transmission and feeds power to the front axles, and a limited-slip center differential delivers balanced power between the front and rear axles. 4MATIC® also continually monitors the speed of each wheel to know it’s turning at the proper speed for every driving situation. 4MATIC® has mixed-friction surfaces covered as well. It uses a combination of individual brakes and reduction of excess engine output to help send the optimal amount of torque to each wheel, whether you’re driving through a puddle, over a patch of ice, or down a gravel road.
Is 4MATIC® Right For Me?
The 4MATIC® all-wheel-drive system is a fantastic option for drivers who want to get the absolute best performance out of their Mercedes-Benz sedan, coupe, wagon, or SUV. It enhances handling to provide you with an incredibly smooth and nimble ride.
