Multi-terrain Select with AUTO Mode
Multi-Terrain Select is a revolutionary system that enables you to drive over all kinds of road surfaces. To address the road surface and provide optimal traction, the system selects from five different modes, when the transfer range is in H4, and from four different modes when in L4. In addition, by selecting AUTO mode, the vehicle estimates the current driving surface based on information from various sensors and optimizes driving force and suspension control. The driver does not need to change the driving mode to get the best off-road performance.
With four cameras installed on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle, the system provides off-road driving support by capturing the road conditions around the vehicle, which are often in the driver's blind spots.
10-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Crawl Control helps provide optimal throttle and brake control, maintaining a constant low speed to support safe, sure driving on sand, dirt, rock, snow, mud, steep grades, or other surfaces that require fine accelerator control. Five speeds are offered, with fully automatic throttle and brake control that helps you to concentrate on steering the vehicle.
STRONG YET LIGHT WEIGHT BODY
A frame with optimally positioned high-tensile steel and aluminum body panels increases rigidity while reducing weight for improved off-road stability and strength and stable on-road handling and ride comfort.
FRONT DIFFERENTIAL LOCK
In addition to the rear differential lock, there is a new front differential lock. Even on rough roads, when one wheel is lifted off the ground, the system distributes driving force optimally to the grounded tire. This improves escape performance and provides excellent rough-road driving performance.
V6 3.5-LITER TURBO GASOLINE
Using millimeter-wave radar and monocular camera sensors, the system detects vehicles and pedestrians (day- and nighttime) and bicyclists (daytime), which the vehicle is approaching. If it determines that there is a high possibility of a frontal collision, it increases brake pressure to optimize collision avoidance. What’s more, if the system determines that there is an extremely high probability of a frontal collision, it automatically activates the brakes to help avoid or reduce impact. It is also capable of detecting oncoming vehicles and pedestrians at crosswalks and intersections.
Airbags and knee airbags for the driver and front-seat passenger, side airbags for first and second rows, and curtain-shield airbags for all three rows support passenger safety in the event of a collision.
