Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)

Standard VDC electronic stability control utilizes sensors that constantly monitor wheel speeds, steering angle, brake pressure, vehicle yaw rate and lateral g-forces. If VDC detects a difference between the driver's intended path and the one the vehicle is actually taking, VDC applies braking power and/or reduces engine torque to help correct vehicle path.

Traction Control System (TCS)

VDC also incorporates an all-wheel, all-speed traction control system that senses a loss of traction and applies braking force to the slipping wheel or wheels as necessary to maintain vehicle motion.
