Land Rover – Venturing Off The Beaten Path

At Land Rover Austin in Austin, Texas we know that on occasion our customers tend to venture off the highway and onto more muddy and rocky terrains.  That is why Land Rover USA has developed the highly innovative Land Rover Terrain Response system that is always at your disposable to help you tackle those challenging landscapes.terrain

The highly exceptional Terrain Response system allows the driver to select one of several modes that optimizes performance on a variety of different surfaces.  And with the recent advent of Terrain Response 2 Auto, you now have the option of letting your Land Rover sense and adjust to the appropriate combination of terrain response settings automatically.  At the flick of a switch, Terrain Response 2 Auto reconfigures transmission, suspension and traction settings for maximum drivability in just about any condition.

The following  is a list of the different modes:

GENERAL DRIVING
For driving on paved roads as well as on the highway, and is also suitable for soft, muddy, waterlogged or rutted ground.

GRASS/GRAVEL/SNOW
Throttle response is dialed back to reduce wheelspin, the transmission starts in second gear and the differential locks are set to be more aggressive. This is the first mode since it represents the type of terrain drivers are likely to encounter the most often.

MUD & RUTS
Suitable for soft, muddy, waterlogged or rutted ground.  In this mode, the transmission starts in first gear and the system recommends both low range and a raised suspension

SAND
This mode is used to counteract loose sand in which the system dials back throttle response and changes the transmission shift pattern to maximize power.

ROCK CRAWL
Over larger moguls, drivers need reduced throttle response but a more aggressive traction control. This mode only works in low range since rock crawling is not to be done at speed.terrain 2

Your Land Rover is clearly built to handle just about any terrain that mother nature decides to throw at it, and there is simply no better luxury SUV on the road today that comes close to matching the capabilities of a Land Rover.   We invite you to visit us here at Land Rover Austin today, so that you can see for yourself just how capable and magnificent our vehicles are.

Land Rover design chief Gerry McGovern stated that the Stealth pack was all part of a plan to offer more choices to customers, and will soon be available for all three Range Rover Sport engines, including the 3.0-liter V6, the 4.4-liter V8 and the monstrous 5.0-liter V8.

The Range Rover Sport equipped with the new Stealth Pack was seen at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, which took place last June on the grounds of Goodwood House in the U.K. and was not surprisingly was a major success.

Sneak Peak – Range Rover Sport SVR

The word is out, and Land Rover Austin has jumped on the bandwagon to let the masses know that the prototype of the forthcoming high performance Range Rover Sport SVR was unleashed at last weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed!

The Range Rover Sport SVR is among the first products of the new Special Operations department at Jaguar Land Rover and promises to pack a serious punch. This beast of an SUV packs the same 5.0-liter supercharged V8 as the original, but has boosted the horsepower up to 542 which matches Jaguar’s top level performance models such as the F-Type R Coupe and XJR.

The precise extent of the modifications for the SVR has not yet been disclosed to us as of yet, but rumors from Land Rover USA suggest that it will add a more aggressive look with a unique front bumper design, larger air intakes and a revised rear bumper.   We also expect to see some contrasting black highlights on the wheels, roof and the side-view mirrors.   This newest version of the Range Rover will be the fastest, most agile and most responsive Land Rover vehicle ever built, and we can’t wait to get our hands on this baby that will be debuting sometime in 2015.

Land Rover Austin in Austin, Texas is proud to also mention that the United States is the largest Range Rover Sport market in the world, so this upcoming model should be thoroughly embraced by avid Land Rover enthusiasts across the nation.
