Standard drive modes are normal, eco and sport, FX4 adds mud, sand, rut from what I can gather from ford website.

But another doc I saw said that with the FX4 package, you lose the eco and sport drive modes and they are replaced with the mud sand modes.

Anyone have any confirmation on what the drive modes really are with the XLT FX4 package?

And any technical data on how exactly the drive modes change the performance?

Thank you!

I think these are for the exsploder but should be similar. Somewhere I read on an online Ford brochure that you do lose the eco and sport. I figured the mud version would be similar to sport.

Ford’s Terrain Management System has four driver-selectable modes that can be operated along with the shift-on-the-fly 4WD system so you can tailor your vehicle’s response depending on the type of terrain you’re on. AdvanceTrac settings are automatically adjusted based on your selection.
  • Normal Mode is for two-wheel-drive operation on easy-going terrain.
  • Grass/Gravel/Snow Mode improves stability for low-traction situations.
  • Mud/Ruts Mode sends maximum torque to all four wheels.
  • Sand Mode that allows for wheel slippage in situations where you’re on soft ground.

So is there gonna be a speed limit to these Modes?? I have a 2015 Toyota Rav4 with the 2.5L AWD and its the DTC (Dynamic Torque Control) version and it shuts off the AWD system at 25 MPH and returns to FWD/AWD on demand Mode.

I presume it adds mud and sans without loose the other. Finally it's just a program to add in the computer.. And if we can have 10 cell link to the truck I guess he could deal with few mode in add.

Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, and Tow/Haul driving modes are standard. If you upgrade to the FX4 Off-Road Package, Ford swaps out the Eco and Sport modes in favor of Mud/Ruts and Sand.

Seems like a crappy way to play it, as I was hoping to at least have Sport mode. I wanted a sporty mode meant for on road.

I agree with this. I want fx4 and it's modes, but I really don't like that I'm losing sport mode. I want a 'performance' node for on road too, not just the off road ones.

At this rate I'll just be using an off road mode for launches when I am fooling around with the throttle at a stop light and then swap back to normal. Or maybe use Towing mode, Idk.

I was thinking mud/ruts may have a similar effect, I'm just scared of breaking something. Also, the manual has a warning about using that mode on paved road.
