For additional information on the appropriate use of each 4WD system mode position, see the information below:


This range disengages the driveline from the powertrain.

It is to be used for flat towing behind another vehicle.

Refer to "Recreational Towing" in "Starting And Operating" for further information.


You or others could be injured or killed if you leave the vehicle unattended with the power transfer unit in the NEUTRAL (N) position without first fully engaging the parking brake. The NEUTRAL (N) position disengages both the front and rear driveshafts from the powertrain and will allow the vehicle to roll, even if the automatic transmission is in PARK (or manual transmission is in gear). The parking brake should always be applied when the driver is not in the vehicle.


This range is for low speed four-wheel drive. It provides an additional gear reduction which allows for increased torque to be delivered to both the front and rear wheels while providing maximum pulling power for loose, slippery road surfaces only. Do not exceed 25 mph (40 km/h).

NOTE: Refer to "Selec-Terrain - If Equipped" for further information on the various positions and their intended usages.
