A strong, stiff chassis helps
provide a smooth ride and
impressive payload capacities.
It also creates the opportunity
for engineers to fine-tune the
suspension to create the ride —
and the look—you want. See page

LOCKING REAR dIFFERENTIAL

STABILITRAK STABILIT Y CONTROL
All Canyon models feature the
StabiliTrak stability control system
and traction control. StabiliTrak
sensors read the position of your
steering wheel, vehicle speed,
brake pressure, lateral acceleration
and turning rate, then feed the
data to an onboard computer.
If your Canyon is not responding
adequately to your steering input,
the computer adjusts engine torque
and brake pressure to any individual
wheel to help you keep on track.
SPLIT-BENCH REAR SEAT
Crew Cab models offer comfort-
able accommodations and
three-point safety belts for three
rear-seat passengers. When
you need more interior storage,
simply flip down either side of
the 60 / 40 seatback.
SHIFT ON THE FLY 4wd
Canyon 4WD models feature
Insta-Trac, an electronic system
that lets you shift — at the touch
of a button — from 2WD to 4WD
HI and back as traction conditions
and vehicle speeds warrant.
For your convenience, Canyon
Extended Cab offers factory-
installed under-seat storage with
a flat loading floor, providing you
with additional storage space.
Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and distribution.
