Intelligence: Einstein had it, Stephen Hawking had it, Dr. Frasier Crane had it, and Ken Jennings has it. In today’s world of the 24-hour news cycle and giant celebrity butts, intelligence seems to be in short supply. But thanks to Ford and it’s Intelligent 4WD (or Intelligent AWD), there’s hope for even the dumbest of us to get more smarter. Read on (you should really read more) and learn(!) about Ford’s Intelligent 4WD.
It all starts with Ford’s Intelligent AWD (All-Wheel Drive) which uses sensors to calculate, hundreds of times a second, everything from road conditions to your speed, wheel position, and throttle. It then delivers all the torque and power you’d ever need, to the appropriate area. Wheel-slip in the front? The engine torque is redirected to the rear—in milliseconds. This is smart stuff people, designed by people in lab-coats with initials in front of their names. People who get called “sir”. People only call you “sir” when their sentence ends, “you’re making a scene.”
Now I know that Intelligent AWD sounds smart, but Intelligent 4WD —available on a wide variety of Ford vehicles— is like, a thousand times smarter. Like dudes playing chess against computers smarter. I can’t even play Connect 4 with my four-year old nephew without losing track of the score. Intelligent 4WD utilizes the same technology as Intelligent AWD, but is built for the types of rugged terrain that you tackle in your Ford. It’s like, some sort of evil genius, but played by Dolph Lundgren. Smart, strong, incredibly capable. Intelligent 4WD can respond to the most treacherous of terrain, and counter wheel-slip while you’re off-roading. For the Fords blessed with Terrain Management System™, like the Explorer or Raptor, you can adjust to mud, ruts, sand, snow, gravel, and more—on the fly. Factor in Hill Descent Control™ which lets you navigate steep grades with minimal brake use, and you’ve got one of the smartest vehicles on —and off— the road.
Look, you don’t have to have one of those fancy college degrees to know what’s what when it comes to the best vehicles on the road. Just come by Team Ford, where we’ve got a huge variety of Ford vehicles with either Intelligent 4WD or Intelligent AWD. So smarten up, and get behind the wheel of one today!
