With a new Mitsubishi that has AWD, you’ll find multiple drive modes as well as other benefits. So learn more about the Mitsubishi AWD system with our team at Springfield Mitsubishi near Philadelphia today.



Mitsubishi AWD Drive Modes

Along with Mitsubishi AWD, you’ll find drive modes to fit your driving style in Delaware County. No matter where you’re headed, you can find a drive mode to suit your needs. Here’s a quick overview of the available drive modes:

Eco Mode

When driving in Eco mode, you maximize your model’s mileage by saving the AWD system for when you need it most on your Morton, PA trips. In Eco mode, the torque is directed to the front wheels, unless the vehicle happens to hit an extra-slippery patch of road. Once your vehicle hits a slippery patch, the system reverts to all-wheel drive, sending power to the rear wheels for better stability.

Auto Mode

What does Auto mode do? Auto mode is a lot like Eco mode, it automatically adjusts to match the road conditions as you’re cruising through.

Lock Mode

Lock mode feeds more torque to the rear wheels in order to boost the all-terrain capabilities with maximum traction. However, it’s not recommended for use every day. Lock Mode is best when you’re off-roading or getting unstuck.
