To select a terrain response driving program:

  1. Press the terrain response button. The touchscreen displays the available driving programs.

  2. Touch the appropriate icon on the touchscreen, or rotate the driver’s-side heater control to select an appropriate driving program.


    The driver’s-side heater control automatically returns to being a climate and comfort control after a period of non-use.


    A different procedure is required to select the AUTO driving program. See AUTO.

The touchscreen displays a confirmation message and the appropriate icon for the selected driving program. The instrument panel also displays the same icon.


The driving program icon flashes if a program change is requested, but the change is inhibited due to Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) being active. The selection takes place once DSC is inactive.


Do not become distracted by the terrain response system while the vehicle is moving. Driver distraction could result in an accident, leading to serious injury or death.


Make sure the correct driving program for the prevailing conditions is selected. Failure to select the correct driving program could result in vehicle damage.
