• You can start out, from a stop, in any gear except sixth.

The system will ignore attempts to upshift at too low of a vehicle speed.

• Starting out in second gear is helpful in snowy or icy conditions. To select second gear after the vehicle is brought to a stop, tap the shift lever to the right (+) once.

• Avoid using speed control when AutoStick is engaged.
