Active driveline
Company: GKN Driveline
What: Drag reduced in awd
Innovation: The system saves fuel when extra traction is unneeded by disconnecting the rear driveshaft at a power takeoff unit on the transmission. The system also disconnects the rear-drive module at the rear axle to further reduce drag and improve fuel economy.
