I have to say, it's annoying that switching *back* to Eco from Sport will cause it to come back out of aero (provided you aren't at a speed where Eco would switch to aero anyway).

Switch back to Eco from Sport, watch the suspension start to raise, mash-mash-mash the suspension down button, see "Selected Ride Height Not Available" on EVIC and the "Aero" ride height indicator disappear. Scowl that your intentions are frustrated for no good reason by some misdesigned software rules.

I would just keep it in aero practically all the time, but it's not really an option at low speed unless you are in Sport mode.

Back on topic: yeah, what the other people have said... it just changes the transmission shift patterns (and suspension shift patterns if you have QL).

Kneecaps,
What do you mean by it won't reach 4000rpm? Does your CRD not rev? Might be signs of a blocking DPF.

I want it to upshift more readily, and I don't want to screw around with the paddles. Sport mode, by design, hangs onto the gears. Also, switching to Sport mode is just yet another "preflight checklist" thing I don't feel like adding.

FWIW, *nothing* will help this beast save on fuel with my usage patterns. I'm currently averaging 13 L/100 km on straight #2 diesel. The efficiency is only this good because I do hypermiling things like rolling through stop signs, otherwise it would be worse. It will probably drop back to 15 L/100 km in a few months, on winter blend. Heh.

Nope. It's just a stock US EcoDiesel. I just mostly drive short, in-town jaunts that never let the engine warm up.

Just curious. If this is your typical driving, what prompted you to go with a diesel?

In order:

1. Highway range per tank.
2. I've always wanted a diesel.
3. When people said this type of driving pattern would "reduce the efficiency of a diesel" I didn't understand they actually meant "you would get better mileage out of a V-8 gasser".

Haha.

Re: Shifting to Sport Mode while moving

nicjak, I understand the manual
1) Originally it revved to appox 4300 (when I was using Sport, as that was what its for). I have driven another diesel & have video of a 3rd vehicle going to 4300rpm all in Sport, did not try 'D'.
2) Point is claimed max Kw is at 4000rpm, it does not get there.
3) The vehicle has been driven by a couple of Jeep tecs & agreed there is no difference between D & S including shift patterns, ECo (fuel use appears the same) only difference is the lights on the dash. No answers as yet.
4)I have four other vehicles, all reach the max Kw (hp) revs then on as power drops off, basically the same as all the 60 vehicles I have owned.

I think you have no freken idea what you are even talking about, let alone anyone else.
Are you trying to rev it past 4000rpm in 8th gear or first gear or neutral?
Sorry im not a mind reader.

Not sure, but I think he's saying it shifts to the next gear before the rpms hit 4000.

I never checked, nor cared , about that. But then again, I do feel a big difference when in sport mode.
