Two wheel drive icon

Two-Wheel Drive
(2WD)

When the switch is on 2x4, the vehicle is in two-wheel drive at all times.
All wheel drive icon

All-Wheel Drive
(AWD)

When in all-wheel drive, the demand drive unit will automatically engage any time the rear wheels lose traction. When the rear wheels regain traction, the demand drive unit will automatically disengage. There is no limit to the length of time the vehicle may remain in 4x4. The vehicle automatically engages 4x4 when operating in reverse if the switch is set to 4x4 position.
Turf mode icon

Turf Mode
(if equipped)

When operating in turf mode, the inside rear wheel will rotate independently from the outside wheel during turns. Operate in turf mode only as needed to protect smooth, level surfaces from tire damage. Do not operate in turf mode when climbing or descending hills, when sidehilling, or when operating on uneven, loose or slippery terrain such as sand, gravel, ice, snow, obstacles and water crossings. Always operate in AWD on these types of terrain.
