I see some are listed with this feature, some not -do all PM's have this? I also read that there is a brake-lock differential on PMs, not sure what the difference is, how they work and which PMs have what - can someone clear this up for me? Thanks.
Thanks Chris. So all American market PM's have the same stability control features? I ask because I saw listings at the same dealer where some listed limited slip differential as a feature and others didn't.No ProMaster has a traditional (mechanical) limited slip differential (a.k.a. "posi," "locker"). They all have stability control (ESP or ESC), which includes traction control (ATC) and "brake-lock differential." Brake-lock differential is similar to ATC because the system applies the brakes to a slipping wheel (in addition to reducing engine power, but to a lesser extent than basic ATC), which results in torque being transferred to the opposite wheel. By turning the ESP off, the brake-lock differential remains active, so you can spin both wheels at a similar speed if you are stuck in snow or mud. It's not recommended to turn off ESP above parking-lots speeds, because you will lose its other benefits (yaw control).
I disagree, I don't think the PM has a LSD.No ProMaster has a traditional (mechanical) limited slip differential (a.k.a. "posi," "locker").
there is nothing to disagree withI disagree, I don't think the PM has a LSD.
According to Allpar it is a brake-lock differential ie electronic control:
The electronic stability control includes ready alert braking (emergency stopping), brake assist, brake-lock differential system, hydraulic boost compensation, trailer-sway control, hill-start assist, drift compensation technology, rollover mitigation, and automatic brake lamp actuation.
there is nothing to disagree with
that is what he said
he never said the PM has a LSD. It has brake lock diff system as you stated.
I think you may have read wrong
