What is Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control?
Available in all new Land Rover models for sale in Philadelphia and beyond, the Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control features is a driver-assistance technology that makes it easier to maintain a safe following speed when cruise control is in use. While all Land Rover models come standard with Cruise Control & Speed Limiter (which allows you to set a maximum speed on cruise control) Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control goes further with its capabilities. Find out how this safety technology works at Land Rover West Chester today!
How Does Adaptive Cruise Control Work?
Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control uses small sensors on the front of the vehicle to detect vehicles in front of you and measure the distance between your front bumper and their rear bumper. The system also measures your vehicle’s speed with regard to the speed of the vehicle in front of you. This is how the system works to keep you save on Exton roads:
- When Adaptive Cruise Control is engaged, the vehicle’s speed automatically reduces if a slower moving vehicle is detected in front of you.
- The system uses its sensors to maintain a safe following distance to the vehicle ahead.
- If the system detects that the slower moving vehicle is no longer present, it automatically raises your vehicle speed back up to the original set cruise control speed.
How Do I Deactivate Adaptive Cruise Control?
While Adaptive Cruise Control will automatically deactivate in certain situations, it can retain the memory of the most recent cruise control settings and get back up to the preset speed when reactivated. Reasons the system might deactivate:
- The brake pedal is pressed or the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB).
- The CAN button (short for ‘cancel’) on the steering wheel is pressed.
- All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) or Hill Descent Control (HDC), which override Adaptive Cruise Control, are turned on.
- Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) or Electronic Traction Control (ETC), which override Adaptive Cruise Control, activate.
- When the speed limiter is in operation (when the pre-set speed limit has been reached).
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go / Queue Assist
On a new Land Rover model you may also have the feature Stop & Go (sometimes called Queue Assist), which is used in slow-moving lines of heavy traffic:
- When the vehicle in front of you slows to a standstill, the system brings your vehicle to a standstill.
- When the vehicle in front of you moves forward again, tap the accelerator pedal and the system will resume a safe following distance.
- The following distance can be adjusted on your steering wheel-mounted controls.
