[music playing] [Text on screen] Styles may vary.

[voice over] Your vehicle may be equipped with the Active Drive four-wheel drive system. This system is automatic with no driver inputs or additional driving skills required. Under normal driving conditions, the front wheels provide most of the traction. If the front wheels begin to lose traction, power is shifted automatically to the rear wheels. The greater the front wheel traction loss, the greater the power transfer to the rear wheels. Four-wheel drive may also be selected manually into 4WD Lock, if so equipped. While in 4WD Lock mode the power transfer unit is locked to ensure immediate availability of torque to the rear drive axles.

This feature is selectable in Auto mode and automatic in the other driving modes. 4WD Lock can be enabled by pushing the 4WD Lock button or when the Selec-Terrain switch is selected into any mode other than Auto. Your vehicle may also be equipped with 4WD Low. When additional traction is required, the 4WD Low position can be used. The 4WD Low position is intended for loose, slippery road surfaces only.

Driving in the 4WD Low position on dry, hard-surfaced roads may cause increased tire wear and damage to driveline components. When operating your vehicle in 4WD Low do not exceed 25 mph or 40 km/h. To enable 4WD Low the vehicle must be stationary, the ignition in the On/Run position or the engine running, and the transmission must be in Neutral. Just push the 4WD Low button. The 4WD Low indicator will blink until the shift is complete.
