The condition of an optimal distribution of the torque for leading wheels of all-wheel drive vehicles is considered which provides minimal power losses during the vehicle movement along the deformed grounds. The calculation of power losses is given for two all-wheel drive vehicles, one of which is equipped with the mechanical blocking transmission and the other - with the adjusted transmission without steps. Advantages of the adjusted transmission are shown.
