Jeep Wrangler & Jeep Gladiator Drivetrain

Both the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator are off-road capable vehicles with an outstanding four-wheel-drive drivetrain. A transfer case lever is positioned beside the gear selector to let you switch the transfer case between 2H, 4H and 4L. Below you can learn when to use each of these modes.

Four-Wheel-Drive: 2H Mode

2H is the ideal selection for everyday driving on pavement, as it drives your rear wheels to give you the best fuel economy.

Four-Wheel-Drive: 4H Mode

4H helps in situations where you need more traction, such as snow and mud-terrain. It engages the front wheels to assist in getting you out of low traction surfaces.

Four-Wheel-Drive: 4L Mode

4L gives you maximum traction and power for low speeds by lowering the gear ratio to boost your torque output. In this mode, you will be able to engine brake better to gain more control.
