What is Buick Torque Vectoring?

Buick Torque Vectoring - 2017 Buick Envision
Buick Torque Vectoring can be found on the new 2017 Buick Envision crossover.

There’s good news for drivers who frequently have to navigate their way through poor weather conditions. Buick’s new Active Twin Clutch all-wheel-drive system makes it easy to do so. Rather than praying for the best, with this new system drivers can make their way through snow, ice, sleet, or rain with confidence—maybe even with grace.

The new all-wheel drive system, which can be found on the new Buick Envision crossover, is made possible by Buick torque vectoring. This is an intelligent feature that has been under continuous development for 20 years. In short, torque vectoring takes power (torque) and delivers it to a specific point (vectoring). In this case, the torque is being sent to the wheels that need it the most.

Buick’s torque-vectoring technology uses electronically controlled clutches that are capable of sending all of the power to the front wheels, the rear wheels, or dividing as needed. Not only does this intelligent feature make it easier to drive in wet or icy conditions, but it also improves handling on dry, paved roads. It’s yet another reason why we at Warsaw Buick GMC are proud to support the Buick lineup each and every day.

Snow Day Activities to Take Part In

Snow Day Activities

Christmas is past, but there are still plenty of opportunities for snow. And a lot of snow means snow days! If winter weather prevents your kids from heading to school, consider heading outside for these snow day activities to take part in!

  1. Build a Snowman

A recent movie asked if you want to build a snowman. The answer, of course, is yes! While we can’t promise he will come to life, we can promise your little ones will have a ton of fun!

  1. Build a Fort

Snowmen aren’t the only things you can build out of snow. Consider working as a team to build an elaborate fort or fortress out of the snow in your yard.

  1. Start a Snowball Fight

That fort will come in handy when you engage in a snowball fight. Split into teams, or hold a free-for-all match! Either way, your kids are sure to have a blast. Just be sure to have some warm hot cocoa ready when the match is over!

If you try any of these activities, let us know! We might feature your exciting snow day at Warsaw Buick GMC or Warsaw CDJR!
