Asked by Aug 18, 2019 at 09:53 AM about the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD

Question type: General

Why does my 2017 Jeep GC feel faster and lighter on the road in sand mode, rather than auto mode? On pavement, sand mode seems to have more power and steering is lighter. When I return to auto mode it feels like the engine is stifled and steering firms up--almost like driving a traditional 4x4 on the road when you're not supposed to. I discovered this by accident on day while driving on road--I turned the dial to sand mode and the Jeep took off as if it had downshifted and steering lightened up
