DRIVING TIPS
DRIVING A FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE*
The drive concept
Contrary to the normal type of selectable
four-wheel drive, the four-wheel drive on
the Transport/Caravelle syncro is always
in action. Only the amount of power
being transmitted to the front wheels
changes according to the requirements.
This automatic distribution of the driving
forces to the rear and front wheels is
attained through a wear resistant vis-
cous coupling incorporated in the front
axle. This ensures, on the one hand,
that the driving force losses are kept
as low as possible, and on the other
hand, that the best possible traction is
attained when required.
Note:
Vehicles for particularly arduous operat-
ing conditions (e.g. predominantly cross-
country work) can be fitted with a ma-
nually controlled four-wheel drive as an
optional extra. Further details are given
on page 23.
