Land Rover Advanced Towing Features

Tackle a wide range of challenging tasks and road conditions with confidence, thanks to innovative Land Rover performance features like Advanced Tow Assist. Even water is no match: the Defender boasts a 35.4-inch wading depth.

  • Advanced Tow Assist — This feature makes every towing job safer by adjusting counter-steering and displaying the direction of your trailer while you’re reversing.
  • All-Wheel Drive with Electronic Traction Control — Your Defender actively adjusts to the terrain to maintain traction at all times, even when conditions are unstable, slippery, or uneven.
  • Twin-Speed Transmission — The Defender’s specialized transmission allows for precise control while you maneuver unpredictable off-road driving conditions.
  • Configurable Terrain Response — This class-exclusive feature allows you to individually select Defender’s powertrain, steering differentials, and traction control settings.
  • Terrain Response 2 — Activate an Automatic Mode that analyzes conditions while you drive in Exton, and then automatically selects the best-matched terrain program.
  • Electronic Active Differential — Adjusts power to all four wheels to make the best use of available traction–reducing wheel slip when you’re off-road, and enhancing cornering when you’re on the road.
  • ClearSight Ground View — Strategically-placed cameras allow you to see and avoid obstacles that are directly in front of you, via the central infotainment display.
  • All-Terrain Progress Control — Set your speed, optimize traction, and keep moving forward in the toughest off-road conditions.
  • Hill Launch Control and Gradient Release Control — These two systems work together to prevent your vehicle from rolling backwards as you tow up an incline.
