Driving over snow, ice, and rugged terrain, original-equipment manufacturers experienced Dana's technologies under the testing grounds' harsh conditions. Each technology received extremely positive remarks, exceeding customer expectations.
"At Dana we're leveraging our industry-recognized expertise in driveline engineering to develop solutions for traditional and electrified vehicle platforms that can tackle the most challenging on-road and off-road conditions," said
Dana's torque-vectoring AWD system combines the ultra-efficient AdvanTEK® 3 system with a twin-clutch mechatronic device that can deliver up to 1,700 Nm of torque capacity to each wheel. During the Winter Test events, the innovative solution was noted for its ability to stay cool on the rough handling track and its ability to provide improved mobility and agility in the snow.
Part of Dana's expanding portfolio of electrified products, the Spicer® Electrified™ e-drive gearbox offers best-in-class noise, vibration, and harshness characteristics and reliability. The module, designed for multipurpose and light-commercial vehicles, has been validated with a maximum torque capacity of 4400 Nm. Dana showed the technology in action on a battery electric shuttle bus.
Also showcased at one of the company's testing events was Dana's Spicer® SmartConnect™ disconnecting all-wheel-drive technology, which helps automakers reduce emissions while also increasing performance and maintaining the safety and control of the vehicle. This system works to conserve fuel by configuring the drivetrain to operate in front-wheel-drive mode when possible, and seamlessly transitions to AWD when it detects slipping at the wheel due to roadway conditions.
