Ford Active Events coming to Jennings Ford dealerships

A series of events are to be held across Jennings Ford dealerships demonstrating the latest Ford intelligent technology. From Friday 16th to Sunday 18th October our Ford dealerships in Gateshead, Middlesbrough and Stockton will be hosting Ford Active Events celebrating the brand new range of Ford Intelligent All Wheel Drive (iAWD) vehicles.


Complementing the iAWD range that already includes the Ford Ranger and Ford Kuga iAWD, they are being joined by the the All-New Galaxy, All-New S-MAX and Mondeo in offering enhanced traction and road-holding with seamless shift between front wheel drive and all-wheel performance to deliver improved grip especially in wintery wet and slipper conditions.

Ford intelligent All Wheel Drive Explained

iAWD constantly monitors the road conditions, throttle position, wheel speed and steering angle to distribute the optimal front and rear torque in just a fraction of a second. Concentrating on improving traction, in icy and wintery conditions where the front wheels may be on ice and the rears not then the iAWD sends extra torque to the rear adding power if required. The iAWD display located on the dashboard in sight of the driver shows the torque distribution between the wheels. 

Other intelligent technology demonstrated throughout the weekend includes:

  • Ford SYNC2
  • Ford Intelligent Speed Limiter
  • Ford Pre-Collision Assistance with Pedestrian Detection
