OFF-ROAD HEIGHT

WARNING

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

Off-road height raises the vehicle to provide greater ground clearance when driving off-road. Off-road height can only be selected at speeds of less than 70 km/h (43 mph).

To select off-road height:

  1. Make sure the vehicle is in the normal height setting. See NORMAL HEIGHT.

  2. Press the up button (3) on the front control panel. See ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION CONTROLS.

The instrument panel displays a message to confirm the vehicle is in off-road height.

Off-road height has two settings, as follows:

  • The Off-Road 1 setting raises the vehicle 40 mm above the normal height. Off-Road 1 operates at speeds of up to 80 km/h (50 mph).

  • The Off-Road 2 setting raises the vehicle 75 mm above the normal height. Off-Road 2 operates at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph).

    NOTES

    Hong Kong vehicles only: The Off-Road 2 setting raises the vehicle 54 mm above the normal height.

The suspension system automatically selects the most appropriate of the two settings, based on a number of conditions. The current off-road height setting can be viewed via the touchscreen as follows:

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

  2. Select VEHICLE DIMENSIONS.

  3. Select OFF-ROAD.
