How Does Kia’s Dynamax AWD System Work?

Looking for a vehicle with all-wheel drive? Kia offers two models that are equipped with an all-wheel drive system, the 2017 Kia Sorento and 2017 Kia Sportage. Kia doesn’t just offer an all-wheel drive system but Kia models are equipped with Kia’s Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system. The Dynamax AWD system utilizes an electronic hydraulic motor and a number of different sensors located throughout the vehicle. It can distribute torque to the proper wheels to help keep the vehicle on the road. The sensors of the Dynamax AWD system are constantly accessing the current driving conditions, taking into account how slippery or slick the road is, as well as what kind of surface you are traveling on.
