Torque vectoring control

Torque vectoring control  - Overview - Lincoln MKS

Drivers are most likely to notice Lincoln's new Torque Vectoring Control (TVC) system when Lincoln Drive Control is set to Sport Mode. TVC helps the Lincoln MKS drive through corners with greater balance and poise.

TVC individually influences the speed of the front wheels to enhance cornering agility by mitigating against a dynamic condition engineers refer to as understeer. When accelerating through corners and the system detects a drop in traction, TVC precisely applies brake force to the inside front wheel (that has less grip) causing a transfer of engine torque to the outside wheel (that has more grip). This helps keep the MKS tracking on the driver's intended line through the corner.
