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
