EcoTrac®

the POWER to drive performance

Disconnecting All-Wheel Drive System

EcoTrac® is a first-to-market technology that offers the convenience and fuel economy of a FWD vehicle with the safety and power of an AWD system. It can sense the change in environment or driving conditions and allows the vehicle to use its primary drive system, the front wheels, when AWD is not needed. Unlike other AWD systems, EcoTrac® disconnects at the power transfer unit (PTU), causing the driveshaft to completely stop spinning when the system is disconnected. Less spinning means less fuel consumption and fewer emissions.

Features

  • Industry-first disconnecting AWD system
  • AAM-developed vehicle controls
  • AAM smart actuator
  • Optional 2-speed disconnecting PTU
  • Optional 2-speed RDM with electronic locking capability

Benefits

  • Improved vehicle fuel economy
  • Improved vehicle handling
  • Off-road capability
