Building Blocks for AWD Systems

The industry’s drive system expert

Building blocks for better driving experiences

Our range of modular solutions for front-, rear- and all-wheel drive vehicles help automakers optimise mass, efficiency and performance.

All-wheel drive coupling modules

GKN Automotive’s all-wheel drive coupling modules control the transfer of torque to the secondary axle in on-demand AWD systems. 

We offer a complete range of modular solutions, including our Electro-Magnetic Control Device (EMCD), Viscous Coupling and Dual-clutch transmission.

Electronic Differential Lock (EDL)

GKN Automotive’s robust Electronic Locking Differentials are proven in front and rear axle applications, offering outstanding off-road traction performance.

Our modular design and system integration make it simpler to package and to combine with a limited slip differential.

Limited Slip Differentials

GKN Automotive’s range of Limited Slip & Locking Differentials is designed to improve vehicle traction and handling performance on all surfaces and under all driving conditions. 

Our differentials distribute driving and braking torques effectively to provide exceptional vehicle control. A complete range of active, passive and selectable solutions for transaxles is available.
