The vehicle may have a ride control system called Selective Ride Control. The system provides the following performance benefits:
• Reduced Impact Harshness
• Improved Road Isolation
• Improved High-Speed Stability
• Improved Handling Response
• Better Control of Body Ride Motions

To switch from TOUR to SPORT mode, move the shift lever to the left while the transmission is in D (Drive).

TOUR: Use for normal city and highway driving. This setting provides a smooth, soft ride.

SPORT: Use where road conditions or personal preference demand more control. This setting provides more “feel,” or response to road conditions through increased steering effort and suspension tuning.

The setting can be changed at any time. Based on road conditions, steering wheel angle, and vehicle speed, the system automatically adjusts to provide the best handling while providing a smooth ride. The TOUR and SPORT modes will feel similar on a smooth road.
