Available in new Land Rover models, Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control goes beyond the cruise control feature you’re used to. Adaptive Cruise Control comes standard with Cruise Control & Speed Limiter, enabling a maximum speed limit to help you avoid speeding in Huntington, but that’s not all.

How Does Adaptive Cruise Control Work?

  1. When Adaptive Cruise Control is engaged, the vehicle’s speed automatically reduces if a slower moving vehicle is detected in front of you.
  2. The system uses its sensors to maintain a safe following distance to the vehicle ahead.
  3. If the system detects that the slower moving vehicle is no longer present, it automatically raises your vehicle speed back up to the originally set cruise control speed.

Deactivating Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control will turn itself off sometimes, but retains its most recent memory settings. It does so under these circumstances on Parkersburg roads:

  • The CAN button on the steering wheel is pressed.
  • The brake pedal is pressed.
  • All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is selected.
  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) or Electronic Traction Control (ETC) activates.
  • The Electric Parking Brake (EPB) is applied.
  • Hill Descent Control (HDC) is selected.
  • 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 models that include Adaptive Cruise Control also feature Stop & Go or Queue Assist. (These are the same features, just referred to by different names.) Here’s how it helps you stay safer on Wheeling highways:

  1. This feature is used in slow-moving lines of heavy traffic.
  2. When the vehicle in front of you slows to a standstill, the system brings your vehicle to a standstill.
  3. 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.
  4. The following distance can be adjusted on your steering wheel-mounted controls.
