What is Hill Descent Control?

September 8th, 2017 by

Land Rover Discovery Sport Hill Descent

Land Rover drivers will find themselves with a variety of features that help ensure you have a great ride through Wayne, PA. One of these features is the Hill Descent Control, which operates in conjunction with your brakes to give you better control in off-road situations, especially when descending. If the engine’s braking system doesn’t accurately control the vehicle’s speed, the Hill Descent Control system automatically starts to operate the brakes and slows the vehicle down. When you’re taking this vehicle on a variety of different terrains, knowing you have the Hill Descent Control feature gives you added peace of mind that your vehicle will keep you safe at all times.

Land Rover Performance Features

In addition to Hill Descent Control, all Newtown Square, PA drivers who bring a Land Rover model home will have other performance features that will help you seek more adventures. For instance, the Land Rover Terrain Response system allows drivers to choose a driving mode that makes sense for the specific type of terrain you’re on. So if you’re driving in snow, there’s a mode for that. There’s also a model for mud and ruts, sand, and general driving.

Land Rover models also come with the right type of power needed to handle your off-road adventures. Depending on what model you choose, you’ll have the horsepower that can accurately get you through the toughest ruts and uneven terrains. In addition, some models come with additional adventure-centric features, such as impressive wade depths, GoPro camera hookups, navigation, and more. Regardless of what model you choose, you’ll know it was made to help you explore the roads less traveled.
