How does the Roll Stability Control™ system work?

Your vehicle offers several different control systems to make driving safer in a very wide range of conditions. One of those is the Roll Stability Control™ (RSC) system. RSC is designed to help enhance stability, which is necessary because of the high center of gravity on your vehicle. Here’s how it works:

  • RSC is automatically turned on when you start the engine.
  • RSC will activate during maneuvers that inherently make the vehicle tip, including:

    • Sharp, fast lane changes
    • Fast turning
    • Maneuvering to avoid an obstacle in the road
