Feel The Sensation of Driving Almaz, Cortez, And Confero!
17 December, 2019
The steering system on the car functions to control the wheels of the vehicle. But perhaps you don’t know yet how the steering system works. For example, the Wuling Confero MPV and the Cortez are embedded with the Rack and Pinion feature in the steering system. What is the Rack and Pinion system?
Rack and Pinion steering system
This Rack and Pinion steering system has been commonly used in passenger cars with lighter weights. The Rack and Pinion system consists of several components, namely the steering wheel, steering wheel protector, tie rod, pinion gear, steering shaft, shift shaft, knuckle arm, rack gear, ball joint tie rod, and cross joint.
This steering system is claimed to be more efficient for the driver when controlling the front wheels. The way it works is simple. When the steering wheel is rotated, the steering shaft will rotate, thus also making the pinion rotate. Due to the pinion rotation, the rack moves, the rack moves to the side which subsequently moves the tie rod to the knuckle arm on the front wheels. In turn, one side of the wheel will be pushed while another side is pulled so the wheel will rotate in the same direction.
The Rack and Pinion steering system have an advantage since its construction is lighter and simpler, the momentum shift is relatively better so the steering system is lighter as well. You can get this pleasant driving experience when using the two MPV from Wuling, which are the Confero and Cortez.
Steering Switch on Almaz
For the Almaz MPV, the steering wheel is already embedded with the steering switch. Steering switch is a system that makes your car’s appearance more exquisite. This is because the steering wheel is not only used to control the front wheels, but it also controls the MID (Multi-Information Display). The Instrument Cluster can only be controlled when the ignition switch is on.
