Software Update 2022.19.03

Important Note

This software release will automatically scan the characteristics of the front passenger seat and will display a notification to the driver if the seat is affected by the safety recall FSAM-651

New Battery Preconditioning En Route to Charger

Battery preconditioning strives to minimize DC fast charging time and achieve optimal charging performance by bringing the battery to ideal temperatures while navigating to a DC fast charger. Preconditioning will automatically start when using the Navigation app and routing to a DC fast charger. The system cools or heats based on battery temperature. The time spent preconditioning can vary based on the advertised power of the charger you’re navigating to, and the state of charge with which you may arrive at the DC fast charger.

New Soft Sand Mode

This new off-road drive mode maximized vehicle performance and capability in soft sand. This mode uses unique traction control settings, minimal stability control support, and reduced regenerative braking to optimize vehicle handling. Navigate to the Drive Modes button on the center display, then choose the Off-Road button, and then choose the Soft Sand button.

Additional Improvements

  • Improved regenerative braking in low traction surfaces and during descents on rocking terrain in Rock Crawl mode
