AutoStick is a driver-interactive transmission feature providing manual shift control, giving you more control of the vehicle. AutoStick allows you to maximize engine braking, eliminate undesirable upshifts and downshifts, and improve overall vehicle performance. This system can also provide you with more control during passing, city driving, cold slippery conditions, mountain driving, trailer towing, and many other situations.


To activate AutoStick mode, move the gear selector into the MANUAL (M) position (beside the DRIVE position). The current transmission gear will be displayed in the instrument cluster.

In AutoStick mode, you can use the gear selector (in the MANUAL position) to manually shift the transmission.

AutoStick mode has the following operational benefits:

  • The transmission will automatically downshift as the vehicle slows (to prevent engine lugging) and will display the current gear.
  • The transmission will automatically downshift to FIRST gear when coming to a stop. After a stop, the driver should manually upshift (+) the transmission as the vehicle is accelerated.
  • You can start out, from a stop, in FIRST or SECOND gear (or THIRD gear, in 4WD Low range). Tapping (+) (at a stop) will allow starting in SECOND gear. Starting out in SECOND or THIRD gear can be helpful in snowy or icy conditions.
  • If a requested downshift would cause the engine to over-speed, that shift will not occur.
  • The system will ignore attempts to upshift at too low of a vehicle speed.
  • Holding the gear selector in the (-) position will downshift the transmission to the lowest gear possible at the current speed.
  • Transmission shifting will be more noticeable when AutoStick is enabled.
  • The system may revert to automatic shift mode if a fault or overheat condition is detected.


When Hill Descent Control is enabled, AutoStick is not active.

To disengage AutoStick mode, return the gear selector to the DRIVE position. You can shift in or out of the AutoStick position at any time without taking your foot off the accelerator pedal.


Do not downshift for additional engine braking on a slippery surface. The drive wheels could lose their grip and the vehicle could skid, causing a collision or personal injury.
