Park (P)

WARNING: Move the transmission selector lever to park (P) only when your vehicle is stationary.

This position locks the driveline. Come to a complete stop before putting your vehicle into and out of park (P).

The electric parking brake could apply when you shift to park (P) without the brake pedal fully pressed. The electric parking brake applies when you shift to park (P) on large slopes. The electric parking brake releases with the drive away release function. See Electric Parking Brake.

Note: A warning tone sounds if you open the driver door and you have not shifted the transmission selector to park (P).

Reverse (R)

WARNING: Move the transmission selector lever to reverse (R) only when your vehicle is stationary and the engine is at idle speed.

This position allows your vehicle to move backward. Come to a complete stop before shifting into and out of reverse (R).

Neutral (N)

Drive (D)
