Make sure the relevant warnings and cautions have been read and fully understood before adjusting the electronic air suspension. See ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION SAFETY.

Extended mode is an automatic suspension height setting that raises the vehicle to assist manoeuvring in the event that the vehicle is:

  • Grounded in severe off-road conditions.

  • Lowered onto an obstacle.

  • Wading in deep water.

  • Driving in narrow ruts.

The instrument panel displays a message and the off-road indicator lamp on the front control panel flashes to confirm the vehicle is in extended mode. See ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION CONTROLS.


Extended mode cannot be selected manually.

The vehicle can be raised higher when in extended mode, if required. To further raise the vehicle:

  1. Press and hold the brake pedal.

  2. Press and hold the up button (3) on the front control panel for longer than 3 seconds.
