Fiat Freemont model is presented to the public in March 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show, and was initially available with two trim levels (Base and Urban) and the 2.0 Multijet II diesel engine variants with 140hp and 170 hp. To maintain interest in this model, Fiat is expanding its range, and is presented in Fiat Freemont AWD version with drive to all four wheels, which comes with the 2.0 Multijet II diesel engine of 170 hp 3.6L V6 with gasoline.
Fiat Freemont AWD, it also owns and is equipped with an electronic control unit which uses sensors to detect the grip of the four wheels and decides when to transmit traction to the rear. The system intervenes on surfaces where the wheels may not have good grip (mud, snow, ice…) to ensure maximum traction and no limits to the routes the vehicle can take, or in the case of asphalt surfaces, to ensure additional traction and greater safety on bends.
Specifically, the electronic system modulates torque transfer through the use of electronically controlled coupling (ECC). Since it only operates on demand, the system contributes to containing fuel consumption. In addition, ECC on the AWD system is more flexible and more accurate than a viscous coupling or a Torsen® system. In addition, the control unit also interfaces with the ESP and the traction control system.
Fiat Freemont AWD 2.0 Multijet II has 170 hp and 350 Nm of torque, reaches a maximum of 184 km / h and up to 100 km / h in 11.1 seconds.
Fiat Freemont AWD 3.6L V6 has 280ks and 342 Nm, can be up to 206 km / h and accelerates to Stotka for 8.4 seconds.
