What Does Dynamic Traction Control Mean on BMW?


Dynamic Traction Control, or DTC, is a regulation system that controls stability and traction, allowing for sports-style driving, handling, and performance. As part of the Dynamic Stability Control system, DTC provides stabilization when you need it most, opening the door for tighter turns and controlled drifts.

How Does DTC Work?

BMW models with Dynamic Traction Control are ready to thrill, tackling the road ahead in Pekin with ultimate precision and handling. When your system detects a loss of traction, DTC automatically begins stabilization measures, curbing engine output and minimizing wheel slip. This system is particularly useful on snowy or slick roads, adding extra grip to prevent sliding. For those who enjoy a more sporty driving style, DTC also allows for better handling on curves thanks to stability measures that kick into gear at just the right moment. 

Which BMW Models Have DTC?

DTC is present on BMW xDrive models, which features an intelligent AWD system that constantly responds to road conditions. xDrive can be found standard on many models, and is available on the remaining. 

  • Models with Standard xDrive: X4, X7, i8, M5, M8, X3 M, X4 M, X5 M, X6 M

While DTC can be found throughout the BMW lineup, it can also be disengaged if desired. This is not recommended though, as it provides exceptional safety and handling throughout Dunlap.
