How Do Honda Pilot AWD Models Perform?

Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4™) AWD senses the amount of torque required by each of your wheel axles on a millisecond by millisecond basis and continuously adjusts distribution accordingly.Engine torque will always be directed to the wheels most in need of traction, and advanced engineering lets the clutch activate separately for variable torque distribution to each rear wheel independently. It’s that intelligent performance that delivers peace of mind in both low-traction and dry conditions while maximizing sure-footedness if you ever leave the heat of Odessa and head somewhere home to ice and snow.
