Shift gate positions

Shift gate positions

Depress the button on the front of the gear selector knob to move between the R, N, D, and P positions.

Kickdown

Automatic shift to a lower gear (kickdown) is achieved by depressing the accelerator pedal fully and briskly. An upshift will occur when approaching the top speed for a particular gear or by releasing the accelerator pedal slightly.

Kickdown can be used for maximum acceleration or when passing at highway speeds.

NOTE
The gear selector must be in the D (Drive) position for kickdown to function.
