Land Rover Discovery Capability Features

With these two powerful engines come performance features that are designed to aid you when you encounter challenging road conditions, tow heavy loads, and traverse rough terrain off the roads.

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