I recently purchased an AWD PP and was curious if the PP is in NORMAL mode, is the vehicle in front wheel drive or AWD ? A video I watched on youtube confused me on the issue
just got back from a day up riding with my buddies, there was only about 3” of fresh snow on the pass but it did just fine, minus a couple times hydroplaning but we’ve been hit with some serious rain this weekThe Passport is always in AWD mode, how it distributes power to the wheels depends upon where the traction is needed. It's a good system. From your dash menus you can select AWD torque mode and it will show which wheels are providing power. Most of the time it will be the front wheels.
I always keep my AWD torque monitor on, it's really interesting to watch how the system distributes power. Even entering a smooth, paved highway if the on ramp has any kind of hard curve you'll see the system driving both left wheels and only the front right.just got back from a day up riding with my buddies, there was only about 3” of fresh snow on the pass but it did just fine, minus a couple times hydroplaning but we’ve been hit with some serious rain this week
Seems like you are pushing a button to retard your engine, then you "hate the throttleWent to Stevens Friday for some boarding and I can honestly say I hate the throttle response when the PP is in SNOW mode, it feels like the throttle throw is shortened making me feel like I have to move my seat forward, also to accelerate/pass someone I feel like I have to push way too hard to get throttle resphones
I went the rest of the season leaving it in normal mode, worked great.When I’m on torque mode my wheels show delivering power evenly to all 4 tires. It never shows just the front ones receiving power. When I step on the gas all 4 tires have bars on the torque system.
