i-VTM4 or SH-AWD? [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-28-2018 11:19

"Unlike most competing systems, i-VTM4 uses active torque vectoring to send up to 70 percent of engine torque to the rear axle and 100 percent of that torque to either the left or right rear wheels."

Is it me or this sentence describes how SH-AWD operates?

Unless they don't mean the torque split will be in curves.

Exactly the Pilot basically became SHAWD light, I do not believe it has the ability to distribute torque side to side over the rear axle but the description of Passport is SHAWD. Acura has now lost that advantage over Honda, another reason why the next generation products need to have a special power/drivetrain or else it's just Honda+ all over again.

It has the ability to fully vary the torque across the rear axle just like SH-AWD. The Ridgeline has it as well.

I've been impressed with my Ridgeline's performance on snow and mud. It's a pretty good AWD system.

iVTM-4 and the current version of SH-AWD use virtually the same hardware. The software allows the iVTM-4 system to send power to the outer wheel for torque vectoring, but less aggressively than SH-AWD. The older VTM-4 system's hardware could handle torque vectoring as well, but the function was never implemented in software.
