The Land Rover Terrain Response System

Land Rover Frisco in Frisco, Texas would like to give you a quick lesson on the ins and outs of the innovative and highly impressive Land Rover Terrain Response system.  terrainn4

Terrain Response System assures that the driver will be up to nearly any off-road task. It offers five different settings that adjust throttle response, gear changes, vehicle ride height and the differentials to optimize mobility in varying environments. With the recent addition of Terrain Response 2 Auto, you now have the option of allowing your Land Rover sense and adjust to the appropriate combination of terrain response settings automatically.  At the flick of a switch, Terrain Response 2 Auto reconfigures transmission, suspension and traction settings for maximum drivability in just about any condition.

GENERAL DRIVING
For driving on paved roads as well as on the highway, and is also suitable for soft, muddy, waterlogged or rutted ground.

GRASS/GRAVEL/SNOW
Throttle response is dialed back to reduce wheelspin, the transmission starts in second gear and the differential locks are set to be more aggressive. This is the first mode since it represents the type of terrain drivers are likely to encounter the most often.

MUD & RUTS
Suitable for soft, muddy, waterlogged or rutted ground.  In this mode, the transmission starts in first gear and the system recommends both low range and a raised suspension

SAND
This mode is used to counteract loose sand in which the system dials back throttle response and changes the transmission shift pattern to maximize power.

ROCK CRAWL
Over larger moguls, drivers need reduced throttle response but a more aggressive traction control. This mode only works in low range since rock crawling is not to be done at speed.terrain

The capabilities of your Land Rover are truly endless and you will see for yourself the true meaning of what technology driven means.   Call or stop by Land Rover Frisco today to schedule a test climb in any of our award winning vehicles and put your driving skills to the test!

Conquering The Great Divide

Land Rover Frisco in the heart of Frisco, Texas is proud to announce that we are gearing up for the adventure of a lifetime with the 25th Anniversary of the Great Divide!great 2

In 1989 Land Rover embarked on an aspiring adventure to traverse the most demanding portion of the Continental Divide in Colorado. With the Rocky Mountains as the backdrop, a caravan of Range Rovers navigated their way along a route that took nearly two years to develop.

Now, to pay homage to this legendary adventure, a fleet of Range Rover vehicles will travel nearly 1,000 miles via unpaved roads from Denver to Telluride along the original Great Divide route.  Throughout the expedition, participants will navigate narrow rocky trails with steep drop-offs and mountain passes using stock 2014 Range Rover vehicles with no special modifications, and will be guided by a handful of professional Land Rover Driving Instructors who will help them along the way.  This epic journey is designed for both novice and avid off-road enthusiasts and is guaranteed to be a truly unforgettable experience.

“The story of Land Rover has long been written on mountain passes and remote trails,” said Kim McCullough, Brand Vice President of Land Rover North America. “By commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Great Divide and of Tread Lightly!, Land Rover reaffirms its continued commitment to off-road capability and environmental responsibility.”great

If you would like to participate in the unique opportunity to navigate a Land Rover across some of the world’s most awe-inspiring landscapes over a ten day journey, starting on September 3rd and ending on the 12th, then please call Land Rover Frisco and we can see if we can find you a spot.

Emphasizing all-terrain capability, vehicles are equipped with 21-inch alloy wheels with 275/45 R21 all-season Continental Cross Contact tires.

As far as other enhancements go, the SVR-exclusive Estoril Blue paint is stunningly gorgeous, and the new front and rear fascias show signs of absolute style and aggression. The quad exhausts at the rear give it a nice added touch, and in the cabin, the new sport seats look and feel marvelous and should keep you well situated and comfortable both on and off-road.   The exterior design also boosts cooling and aerodynamic efficiencies, and a modified interior featuring sport seats provides visual differentiation and offers increased support for both driver and passengers.

John Edwards, Managing Director of Land Rover Special Operations, said: “The Range Rover Sport SVR is a natural progression beyond the core vehicle’s outstanding on- and off-road capabilities and leading-edge design. It’s exhilarating performance will satisfy a particularly demanding customer set.”
