Transmission

Driver Shift Control (DSC)

Driver Shift Control (DSC) allows you to shift an automatic transmission similar to a manual transmission. To use the DSC feature:

1. Move the shift lever from D (Drive) to the left into the (+) or (−) manual position.

2. Press the shift lever forward (+) to upshift or rearward (−) to downshift. An M and the current gear will be displayed in the Driver Information Center (DIC).

See Manual Mode .

While using the DSC feature, the vehicle will have firmer, quicker shifting. You can use this for sport driving or when climbing or descending hills, to stay in gear longer, or to downshift for more power or engine braking.
