Traction is a truck's capability to keep its tires firmly on the road below. Most vehicles today function without the use of an electronic traction control system. Most vehicles available today come with a standard open differential equipment or a standard non-limited-slip. The 2017 Super Duty comes outfitted with limited-slip differentials. This feature distributes torque between the two sides of the drive axle, unlike open differentials. When a wheel starts to slip; clutches, gears or other components inside of the differential engage and shift the torque from the slipping wheel towards the non-slipping wheel.
