Love this information, which leaves me even more exited to see what the system will be like in comparison to other well put together AWD systems.
The best part about the new system however is its potential scalability. Joe Bakaj, Ford of Europe's VP had this to say, "If you look at the thread of the presentation and what we've used these fast Fords for in the past, a lot of mainstream technologies that we use today came from these vehicles, and I can see this as one of those technologies of the future."The official details of what Ford calls the Focus's Rear-Drive Unit are almost identical to those of the rear axle "Active Driveline" that Land Rover recently introduced on higher-performance versions of the Range Rover Evoque. Both use twin electronically controlled clutches on the rear axle to send torque to the back wheels, and both are claimed to be capable of the same neat side-to-side torque-vectoring trick.
