A mechanical differential lock supports the 4MOTION technology, making take-offs on difficult terrain less stressful. Overall, the system’s lightweight design provides the foundations for an optimum driving response and a dynamic ride.


Steer with power.

Navigation becomes seamless with new electro-mechanical power steering. Not only is it more fuel efficient, but it also opens up access to numerous new driver assist systems. Because it also transmits steering commands to the wheels more directly, it makes the Caravelle 6.1 more agile and precise. The introduction of the optional second-generation chassis control system (DCC) provides for seamless driving profile selection. The range of familiar slip and braking control systems has been expanded through the addition of the XDS function, which improves the handling and traction characteristics. All-in-all upgrading the Caravelle’s high level of comfort even more.
