Range Rover Sport Introduces Torque-Vectoring
The all new Range Rover Sport will be the flagship vehicle for the new torque vectoring feature. Offering smoother and timely turns on the road, torque vectoring makes it easier for drivers to control the vehicle especially on challenging courses. Torque vectoring requires the use of the brakes as it manipulates axle behavior.
Importantly, this new feature distributes torque across the front and rear axles by braking individual wheels. Now drivers will feel a greater sense of the control especially on slippery surfaces. With the winter season fast approaching, Torque vectoring is one of those features necessary to ensure smooth driving on the icy roads.
Torque Vectoring works along with the Dynamic Locking Differential feature. They comprise the vehicle’s dynamic control system. These features are indicative of the hard work by the automakers to guarantee top-class driving and comfort in the new Range Rover Sport. Land Rover describes Torque Vectoring as an additional steering wheel and in fact, it is. This feature controls handling and helps in preventing understeer by braking specific wheels.
Understeering can be scary so the benefit of torque vectoring is to lessen this occurrence. Anything is mentioned in the winter season and sometimes smooth roads can be a challenge because they are no clear impediments to stop or break the flow of the vehicle. Torque Vectoring is also designed to match the road surfaces so for roads covered in snow, the effect is backed off by fifteen per cent to make it easier for driver to handle the Range Rover Sport.
