Make sure the relevant safety warnings and cautions have been read and understood before towing a trailer. See TOWING SAFETY.

The deployable tow bar incorporates a measure load feature. The measure load feature allows the user to view an indicated nose weight range for a connected trailer.


The displayed weights are for guidance only, and are not accurate weight calculations.

To activate the measure load feature:

  1. Touch the apps icon on the driver side bar. See TOUCHSCREEN HOME MENU.

  2. Select TOW BAR.

  3. Select MEASURE LOAD.

Operating the measure load feature 5 times in quick successions may cause the system to stop working. If this occurs the feature needs to be calibrated. To calibrate the measure load feature:

  1. Disconnect the trailer.

  2. Stow then deploy the tow ball. See DEPLOYABLE TOW BALL OPERATION.
