Sport mode question

Is there any other difference beside Suspension being adjusted when turning the select terrain to sport mode (vs) putting the shift lever in sport

Re: Sport mode question

The Jeep wont use MDS and shifts are a little firmer.

Re: Sport mode question

The shift lever affects the transmission only. The dial affects the entire car. From the user manual:

Shift lever SPORT (S)
The SPORT shift mode alters the transmission’s automatic
shift schedule for sportier driving. Upshift speeds
are increased to make full use of available engine power.
To switch between DRIVE and SPORT shift mode, tap the
shift lever rearward. SPORT shift mode is only accessible
from DRIVE.


Selec-Track Sport
– Dry weather, on-road calibration. Performance

based tuning that provides a rear wheel drive feel but

with improved handling and acceleration over a two wheel


drive vehicle. The customer has the option of



going to partial ESC. The active suspension system

will be in Firm mode and the transmission will be in

SPORT shift mode then and a green flag will light up

in the instrument cluster. The transmission will provide

a more aggressive shifting pattern (Refer to
“Paddle Shift Mode” in “Starting And Operating” for






further information). This feature will reset to AUTO



on an ignition cycle.
