Super Handling All-Wheel Drive

Races are won in the curve. Now curves have met their match. The torque-vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system was designed not just for tricky weather, but also for superior handling on any road.

Was Won



SUPER HANDLING ALL-WHEEL DRIVE ? ?

Races are won in the curves. Now curves have met their match. The available torquevectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD®) system was designed not just for tricky weather, but also for superior handling on practically any road.

SUPER HANDLING ALL-WHEEL DRIVE ™ † (SH-AWD ® )

By continuously directing engine power to match driver input, weight distribution, available traction, and other conditions, the available SH-AWD system provides seamless power transitions and supreme control. And the new lightweight SH-AWD system in the TLX uses torque vectoring to add or subtract rotational momentum with a surgically precise nudge. The result
is enhanced performance that simply can't be matched by front, rear, or conventional all-wheeldrive systems, whether out on the track, or simply turning onto your street.

Joining forces with SH-AWD, Agile Handling Assist † actively applies braking to any of the four wheels independently. This helps the TLX pivot through every corner more accurately, aiding vehicle stability, maneuverability and control.
  
 
The available SH-AWD® system continuously determines the optimal level of power distribution between the front and rear wheels, as well as between the rear wheels, based on an analysis of wheel speed, steering angle, lateral G-force, and yaw rate (the rate at which the TLX rotates clockwise or counterclockwise).
