Honda Intelligent Traction Management

As automotive technology continues to evolve, we've seen the creation of some pretty amazing features from innovative automakers like Honda. From smart safety technology that helps keep you out of harm's way to head-up displays that project crucial information right onto your windshield, it's safe to say that our cars are smarter than they ever have been. In addition to these technologies, Honda has created the Intelligent Traction Management System that optimizes your vehicle's performance to the terrain you're driving over. What does this look like in practice? Let's explore the amazing capabilities of the Honda Intelligent Traction Management System.

How It Works

The Honda Intelligent Traction Management System works in conjunction with your car's Drive-by Wire throttle system and the Stability Assist system to engage in one of four different driving modes:

  • Normal
  • Sand
  • Snow
  • Mud

The normal mode is the default mode for your Honda, and it offers a well-rounded ride over everyday surfaces like pavement, gravel, and even cobblestones. Should you take a trip out to the desert for a little arid off-roading, the Sand mode will come in handy! It's best used on sandy, soft terrains. Though we don't get too much snow here in Greenville, the Snow mode will come in handy when winter flurries set in, or when you take a trip up into the mountains. Finally, the Mud mode is great for off-roading through sticky, muddy trails around North Carolina.

All of these terrain modes work by sending the torque of your Honda's engine to the wheels that need it the most depending on the surface you're driving over. You can engage any of them with the push of a button for on-the-fly control over the road.

Honda Vehicles with Traction Management

While not every Honda vehicle is equipped with the Intelligent Traction Management system, Honda's SUVs and truck offer this smart system, including the Honda Ridgeline, the Pilot, the Passport, the CR-V, and the HR-V. When you choose one of these rugged vehicles, be sure to opt for a trim level that includes the Intelligent Traction Management System so that your vehicle is as ready for adventure as you are.
