Most modern vehicles, including utes, use an electronic system for the throttle known as “fly by wire”. Instead of a cable mechanically connecting the pedal to the throttle, the pedal has a sensor to read how much the pedal is pressed and then operated the throttle electronically to open it accordingly.
The problem with this is that many vehicles have a noticeable delay between the time you press the pedal and the time the throttle reacts. This is where iDrive comes in.
The iDrive Throttle Controller allows you to adjust the reaction time of the throttle and the pedal, in order to match it to your driving style.
But there are other throttle controllers that can do that, what makes iDrive so special?
The iDrive unit is able to automatically adjust the throttle response based on pedal pressure and your driving style. That means if you are taking it easy and using the throttle gently, it will set itself to setting 1 (least responsive).
If you accelerate hard, such as in an overtaking maneuver, towing a trailer or just having a good time behind the wheel, it will change the setting to 9 (most responsive).
It also has an economy mode, which reduces responsiveness of the throttle in order to increase fuel economy.
And, should you want full control, you can manually set the controller between 1-9 to give you the exact response you are looking for.
