Drivetrain Status in EVIC

I just noticed today that there was another "Panel" to the right of the 4WD drive status. I was flipping through displays and thinking, this particular display was rather useless. It's the one that typically shows "Auto 4WD" mode. Then I noticed it had two "Dots" indicating there was another screen. So I clicked the right Arrow.

It shows your 4WD Status. Well maybe. When you turn the wheel it animates the Wheels turning. Ok, that's cool.

But will it display what the "Auto" mode is thinking. Like if a wheel is slipping will that Wheel Glow?

Just curious. Be cool if you knew what wheels were slipping and what the System was deciding to rectify it.

Re: Drivetrain Status in EVIC

The MDX had a real time graph showing the percentage of power to each wheel.

Although awd, not 4wd, it is a cool system. On turns it gives extra power to the outer rear wheel. This is based on torque, nothing has to be slipping.

Almost went in the ditch in my TL watching which wheel was getting the power when accelerating through a turn. Lol. Was a fun car. Could even drift it!

I do wish the Jeep had that feature. It may be even useful lol.
