Having said this, the new Jimny 5-door will be offered with the brand’s AllGrip Pro 4WD setup that features a low-ratio gear that further multiplies engine torque and limits speed. The brand offers as many as three AllGrip systems out of which it is the AllGrip Pro 4WD that offers the best off-road driving capabilities. The setup gets two-wheel-drive high (2H) mode, four-wheel-drive high (4H) setup, and four-wheel-drive low (4L) mode. While the 2H mode is best suited for normal driving conditions, the 4H mode is used for off-road and slippery conditions.
