What is Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control?
Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control is a driver-assistance technology that comes standard in new Land Rover models and works to enhance the cruise control feature on most vehicles. The cruise control and speed limiter allow you to set a maximum speed to help avoid breaking any speed limits in Clearwater. Learn more below about this technology and what models have Adaptive Cruise Control with the experts at Land Rover Tampa.
How Does Adaptive Cruise Control Work?
- When engaged, the vehicle’s speed automatically reduces when it detects a slower-moving vehicle in front of your car.
- The system uses its sensors to keep a safe following distance.
- If it detects that the slower car is no longer there, it automatically raises your speed back up to the original cruise control speed.
Deactivating Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control automatically deactivates in certain scenarios but retains the memory of its most recent settings. Here are several reasons why the system would deactivate as you are driving on the Wesley Chapel roads:
- All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is selected.
- Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) or Electronic Traction Control (ETC) activates.
- Hill Descent Control (HDC) is selected.
- The brake pedal is pressed.
- The CAN button on the steering wheel is pressed
- The Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) is applied.
- When the speed limiter is in operation (when the pre-set speed limit has been reached).
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go / Queue Assist
New Land Rover vehicles that are equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control are feature Stop & Go or Queue Assist – the same features referred to by different names. Below is how this feature works:
- This feature 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 continue to maintain a safe following distance.
- The following distance can be adjusted on your steering wheel-mounted controls.
