Jeep Hurricane Steering
The Hurricane's steering system is about as complex as most entire cars are all by itself. There are several steering modes using four-wheel independent steering. What this means in simple English is that each wheel can turn separately from the others for this Jeep.
- The Jeep Hurricane's split-axle design -
Each axle can rotate in the same direction to apply a downward force to each wheel simultaneously.
In regular steering mode, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels, which severely tightens the turning radius adding more accurate steering. In second mode, the rear wheels turn in the same direction as the front wheels, which mean the Jeep Hurricane can "crab-steer" -- move to the side without changing the direction that it faces. This whole concept is amazing in my opinion, not something you'd find on a wrangler or cherokee.
The third mode actually allows the vehicle to rotate in place utilizing the "T-Box Zero Steer" mechanism, allowing all four wheels to "toe-in" and changes the drive direction to each wheel so that they alternate.
