Shift Lever Sport Mode vs Selec-Track Sport Mode

Silly question but I'm not entire sure I got the answer from the manual.

If I use the shift lever to select "Sport", the instrument cluster lights up a flag at the top right of the speedo. If use the Selec-Track dial, I get two flags; the one at the top right and a second green flag at the top left of the speedo. Are there two sport modes on the SRT?

Yes. Using the shift lever activates Sport mapping in the transmission only. It also reduces the frequency at which cylinder deactivation occurs. Using the Selec-Track dial will change parameters in the transmission, steering, suspension and cylinder deactivation frequency (or total elimination thereof i.e, in track mode).

Re: Shift Lever Sport Mode vs Selec-Track Sport Mode

In the Challenger, yes Sport/Track changes the steering rack. In the Jeep GC, I don't think the rack changes. This is true for 2015 and back, but I thought they were going to electric steering assist in 2016, then I believe the modes will change the rack.
