1Hill Descent Control System  
When driving down hills where engine braking is not enough to decelerate the  
vehicle, this system helps maintain a constant vehicle speed without needing to  
depress the brake pedal.  
3WARNING  
Hill descent control cannot maintain a  
constant vehicle speed in every situation.  
Hill Descent Control Operating Conditions  
The system operates under the following conditions.  
Driving at a speed between about 2-12 mph (3-20 km/h).  
Driving downhill.  
When driving down a very steep hill or on  
slippery road surfaces, the vehicle may not  
be able to maintain the vehicle speed and  
could cause a crash, resulting in serious  
injury or death.  
Accelerator pedal and brake pedal are not depressed.  
Driver Information Interface Display  
Since Hill Descent Control is not designed  
to increase the limits of vehicle  
performance, the driver must always be  
aware of road surface conditions and drive  
safely.
