How Does Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control Work?

  • When Adaptive Cruise Control is engaged, the vehicle’s speed automatically reduces if a slower moving vehicle is detected in front of you.
  • Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control helps to maintain desired speeds on Middletown highways that will alleviate stress on your Range Rover as it minimizes the time spent accelerating.
  • 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.
  • Advanced systems are connected to the navigation system and/or cameras to help slow down speed around tight curves or when posted speed limits change.

How Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control Makes Driving Easier

Overall, the Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control system is designed to decrease stress on the accelerator pedal in cruising conditions. However, there are a few more ways it makes daily Newark commutes easier:

  • Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control features Stop & Go capability, which allows your vehicle to continue to use Adaptive Cruise Control at lower speeds since the system can stop when traffic does.
  • This system will automatically deactivate a few seconds after you’ve come to a complete stop.
  • With Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control, you will also receive a bundle of other safety technology features that all help make driving around Wilmington a carefree experience.

Limitations of Adaptive Cruise Control Technology

So far, we’ve answered, “What is Adaptive Cruise Control?” and “How does Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control Work?” However, it’s equally important to understand the limits of Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control. Here are a few limitations of Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control to keep in mind:

  • The driver must still steer the vehicle.
  • If the vehicle ahead of you suddenly brakes, you will need to take action.
  • Any obstructions or obstacles in the road like cones or roadkill will need to be avoided by you.
  • Extreme weather or debris can affect the Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control system since it relies on camera sensors and radar.

How to Turn Off Adaptive Cruise Control

Now that you know how adaptive cruise control works, it will be helpful to know how to turn off adaptive cruise control when it might not be needed. Here is how to turn off Adaptive cruise control:

  • Press the CAN (cancel) button on the steering wheel.
  • Press the brake pedal or the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB).
  • Manually select the Hill Descent Control or All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC).
  • When the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) or Electronic Traction Control (ETC) are automatically activated, it will deactivate the Adaptive cruise control once the pre-set speed is reached.

Is Adaptive Cruise Control Worth It?

So, is Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control worth it? The answer is “yes!” If your commute is long or you’re the adventurous type, then Adaptive Cruise Control is a huge upgrade for you. As the car controls the accelerating and braking systems, it can relieve much of the stress associated with driving. However, we recommend giving yourself time to acclimate to the system if you’ve never experienced it before.
