|1Grass/Gravel/Snow mode should be selected where a firm surface is covered with loose or slippery material such as packed snow, ice, water, grass, or a thin layer of gravel or sand. For deep gravel or sand, select Sand mode. If the vehicle cannot gain traction in deep snow, switching off the traction control system may help (switch traction control back on when you regain traction). See
Using Traction Control.
2Sand mode should be selected in soft dry sand or deep gravel. If crossing wet sand that may be sufficiently deep enough for the wheels to sink into the surface, select Mud/Ruts mode.
3Mud/Ruts mode should be selected for muddy, rutted, soft or uneven terrain.
4Normal mode is for on-road conditions and should be selected before driving on surfaces which are similar to a hard road surface or once the need for a special mode has passed. Select Normal mode when towing a trailer.
