Choose from five driver-selectable modes — Mud and Sand, Loose Rock, Rock and Dirt, Mogul and Rock. Based on the terrain you are faced with, the system will adapt its performance to match the terrain. When you select a terrain mode, the Multi-Terrain Select system will automatically adjust brake pressure, throttle response and wheel slip to maximize traction and improve overall performance.

For example, when you are faced with loose terrain, the system will allow for more wheel slip, to allow your tires to spin until you regain solid traction. In rocky and uneven terrain, the Multi-Terrain Select system will apply more brake pressure to minimize wheel slip and augment traction, much like a limited slip differential.
