DESCENT CONTROL MODE

When the All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) system enters descent control mode, the instrument panel displays a confirmation message. See ALL SURFACE PROGRESS CONTROL (ASPC) and USING ALL SURFACE PROGRESS CONTROL (ASPC).

Operate as follows:

  1. Select the correct driving mode for the current driving conditions. See DRIVING MODES OPERATION.

  2. Select the required position for the gear selector.

  3. Release the vehicle's brakes to allow gravity to make the vehicle progress up to the descent control mode’s default speed. The currently selected driving mode determines the descent control mode’s default speed. The default speed varies from a minimum of 2.2 mph (3.5 km/h) and up to a maximum of 7.5 mph (12 km/h).

  4. The ASPC system maintains the descent control mode's default speed. ASPC exits descent control mode if it detects the use of the accelerator pedal, or the set speed is increased via the speed control switch. See ALL SURFACE PROGRESS CONTROL (ASPC) SETTINGS.

    NOTES

    Descent control mode resumes when the accelerator pedal is released and the set speed has not been increased via the speed control switch.
