Here at our dealership in Amherst, we want you to be an informed truck or SUV owner. So let's do a quick recap of the differences between 4H and 4L when it comes to shifting into four-wheel drive.

When to Shift Into 4H

4H or four high is for driving at faster speeds in off-road or snowy conditions. For example, if you are on the highway during a snowstorm or on a smoothly paved dirt road that allows you to go fast 4H is the gear to use. Never go faster than about 55 mph in 4H.

When to Go 4L

?4L or four low is for tougher off-road or deep snow/sand conditions where it is necessary to drive slow. You should never do speeds of more than 35 mph when in 4L and anything over 25 mph is too fast. Visit us at Virginia Select Auto where we can answer any other questions you may have.
