The Grand Vitara equipped with the Four-Mode full time four-wheel-drive system offers the best of both worlds: it is exceptionally capable off-road, but behaves perfectly on the asphalt. With excellent approach, break-over and departure angles, and 7.9 inches of ground clearance (4WD models), the Grand Vitara means business. Adding to that credible off-road capability is a sophisticated available Four-Mode full-time four-wheel-drive system with two-speed transfer case. On the road, drivers can leave the interior-mounted transfer case switch in 4H and the electronically controlled on-demand all-wheel-drive system will apply traction to the front wheels as needed, making city driving smooth and precise. When traveling off-road or for low-speed power and traction, drivers can turn the switch to high-range 4H Lock or low-range 4L Lock to engage the center differential lock.
RV prospects should note: the Grand Vitara equipped with the Four-Mode full-time 4WD system can also be towed with four wheels on the ground – with the transfer case switch in the neutral position – to reduce driveline wear and prevent non-driving miles from accumulating on the odometer.
The Grand Vitara delivers EPA fuel economy estimates of 17 mpg/city and 22 mpg/highway with the automatic transmission and two-wheel drive.
Advanced Structural Engineering and Chassis Design
All Grand Vitara models feature lightweight-yet-rigid unibody construction enhanced with a built-in ladder frame to offer the best of both worlds – a refined on-road ride and the rugged off-road performance expected from Suzuki SUVs. The structure is teamed with four-wheel independent suspension – MacPherson struts in front and a multi-link design in the rear – to provide precise handling both on-road and off-road. The Grand Vitara also features large, vented front disc brakes and rear drum brakes, power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and an available 225/65R17 tire package.
