Quantum™ AWD & RWD Modules

The POWER to redesign the standard

 

Building on the QUANTUM™ technology developed initially for light truck beam axles, AAM has expanded QUANTUM™ for passenger vehicle and SUVs. Whether it is RWD or AWD, we have you covered with QUANTUM™– a lighter and more efficient drive module available in multiple configurations and sizes to meet your needs.

For customers looking for systems on other vehicle segments, AAM developed QUANTUM RWD and AWD modules. With typical applications including passenger cars, crossovers and SUVs, QUANTUM RWD and AWD modules can be designed and built for multiple configurations and sizes. These lightweight and efficient modules are available in open, mechanical limited slip, electronic limited slip and torque vectoring configurations and can be equipped with AAM’s first-to-market EcoTrac® Disconnecting AWD technology. QUANTUM RWD and AWD systems are up to 25 percent lighter and up to 30 percent more efficient compared to a traditional axle for these segments of vehicles. QUANTUM AWD and RWD modules also have a reduced packaging size allowing OEMs space flexibility for other vehicle systems.
