Question about 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan
Trac is short for Traction. In english and easy terms on older cars only one wheel was used for forward motion..on newer cars (mid 70's and later) they have dual traction whereas both rear or front wheels provide motion from engine. With even newer cars 1995 and forward many manufacturers began installing intelligent or positive traction. This means that the car can sense when one of those wheels is losing grip and transfer more of the engine output and torque to the other wheel. They did this so if one wheel was on an ice patch but the other wasnt it would still move, etc, etc. Your car, and many others, gives you a button to decide if you want the engine computer to monitor the wheels and automatically do this for you or if you want to turn off the monitoring and have the power to both wheels be the same. You should run with traction control on during normal operation. If you are in deep snow or other conditions you can turn it off to get more force out of wheels to get unstuck, etc.
