  5. Follow Display Prompts: After selecting the desired terrain mode, the Multi-Terrain Select system will adjust various vehicle systems to optimize performance for the selected terrain. This could include adjustments to throttle response, traction control, stability control, and more.
  6. Drive with Caution: Keep in mind that while the Multi-Terrain Select system can enhance your vehicle’s performance off-road, you should still exercise caution and drive within your skill level and the capabilities of your vehicle.
