Land Rover Discovery Capability

The Land Rover Discovery also comes with a host of standard or available features to make sure you are safe and in control when you’re pulling a heavy trailer around New Canaan. Explore these advanced technologies and engineering designs that enhance control on slippery roads or rough terrain:

  • Dynamic Stability Control and Electronic Power Assisted Steering: This feature enhances your on-road capabilities to ensure you’re stable and can steer with confidence.
  • Hill Descent Control®: This assists the driver when heading down a steep hill. It brakes each individual wheel and helps you maintain a slow and steady speed for a safe descent.
  • Advanced Tow Assist: This optional feature helps you control the direction of your vehicle and your trailer when driving in reverse.
  • All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC): This available system helps you set and maintain a steady speed when driving over difficult road conditions. It works sort of like low-speed cruise control and allows you to focus on steering and handling instead of speed.
  • Terrain Response® 2: This feature allows you to choose the best drive mode option for your driving style or the current road conditions.
