How To Activate Free Driving Mode (Bounce) in the Mercedes-Benz  GLS 600 Maybach 



The Mercedes-Benz GLS 600 Maybach is give or take one of the most technologically advanced SUVs on the market today. With its aesthetically pleasing appearance and driving efficiency, this vehicle really is hard to compete with. The starting price for the GLS 600 Maybach is £169, 755.00 and boy have they made it worth the money. Lots of different interior features for both rear and front-seat passengers, as well as the driver. The elegant design of the interior also adds to the comfort when being in the car. Carefully and generously designed to provide the customers with the ultimate driving experience no matter where they are driving/or being driven to. The Maybach is the epitome of luxury and they are set to only get even more luxurious. With the concept Mercedes-Maybach EQS, combining the design of the EQS and the Maybach as a collaboration we didn’t know we needed. 

Free Driving Mode

One of the features that is impressive in the GLS 600 Maybach is the Driving Assist. There are two different modes to help you in this feature and they are called Free Driving Mode and Individual Wheel Control. The first (FDM) mode is effectively the infamous ‘Bounce Mode’. To activate this feature go to your infotainment homepage, select settings then go to assistance. If the off-road assist isn’t available to select then all you need to do is change your dynamic controls to off-road mode. Once you’re in off-road mode, you can go back to settings (put the car into drive), then the off-road assist setting will be available to select. Click start and the car will slowly start to build into the bounce. It gets more intense the longer it is on. The free driving mode is designed to help the car start on uneasy surfaces, loose ground, any gravel or sand type material, and hill-type roads. Basically, any unfriendly driving terrain and the vehicle will support itself to get you out of the rut. 

Individual Wheel Control

The second feature available under the Driving Assist is the Individual Wheel Control. This is as self-explanatory as the name, you are able to control each wheel individually. By manually selecting each wheel you can help to direct the vehicle on its levels. In a sense, leaning on one side or the other, or raising the front end of the car up or the rear end. You are also able to select the height of the car if you desire. To activate and use this feature go through the exact step-by-steps you took for the first feature. However, you select the Individual Wheel Control option. On the infotainment screen, you can manually use the interface’s slider to move the car up, down, and side to side. This would be useful when you are parked on an angle and you want to level off your vehicle to make it easier to pull off. Or even to avoid certain obstacles in your path. This gives you a lot more control over how you want to use or drive the car.
