On the road with different surfaces on each side, for example dry tarmac on one side and ice or snow on the other, you will appreciate the EDL differential lock. This system works together with ABS sensors.
Electronic control unit continually receives data from ABS wheel speed sensors on the driven wheels. If ECU detects that one wheel is slipping, it applies the brake pressure to match its speed to the second, non-slipping wheel. This also directs the torque to the wheel with better traction, which is able to transfer more power.
The EDL advantages are most obvious during acceleration or driving up the hill with low traction under one of the driven wheels.
