full-length open canvas roof.

turns off fuel during vehicle deceleration. This improves fuel economy without any noticeable changes in engine
performance. In addition, 3.7-liter engine models include the new fuel-saver indicator that displays when the vehicle is

2WD, 4WD Auto, 4WD Low and Neutral. The 2WD position is for normal driving and achieves optimal fuel economy
as the front driveshaft is disengaged from the transfer case and power is directed to the rear wheels.

road settings, including dry pavement conditions not typically suited for conventional part-time four-wheel-drive
systems. 4WD Low is for true off-road conditions. Front and rear driveshafts are locked together and a second
gearset multiplies torque, which provides traditional Jeep capability. 4WD Low is suitable for speeds less than 50
km/h.
