Land Rover is proud to be an official team partner of the GREAT Britain entry in the Clipper 2013-14 Round the World Yacht Race, which departed from London’s iconic Tower Bridge on the first of September 2013 to compete in the ultimate long distance match race.   In the end, the GREAT Britain team achieved an impressive second place finish in the almost eleven month long distant match race.

The teams got to experience culture galore by stopping in 16 ports throughout the globe, including Sydney, Australia, Qingdao, China, New York City, and Londonderry, Northern Ireland.   The Clipper Race teams displayed great skill along with complete composure and strength of mind, all of which were required to complete this challenging round-the-world adventure.

Land Rover is delighted for the GREAT Britain crew and their incredible 2nd place in this most challenging of races. The sport of sailing and the philosophy of Land Rover go hand in hand, with our shared values of adventure, inner strength and a competitive spirit; said Mark Cameron, Jaguar Land Rover’s Global Brand Experience Director.  The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race has been a fantastic initiative and has provided the perfect platform to deepen Land Rover’s involvement in sailing as well as supporting the Government’s efforts to celebrate what is great about Britain overseas.”race

Land Rover’s history with competitive sailing dates back to 1988 when the brand first sponsored Cowes Week, and is continuing its investment in sailing as the series main partner of the Extreme Sailing Series,  as well as the Official Team Partner and Vehicle Partner to Red Bull Extreme Sailing Team.

Land Rover – Intelligence Driven

Land Rover Frisco in Frisco, Texas is here to bring you cutting-edge technology that is being pioneered by Land Rover researchers to develop a truly intelligent self-learning vehicle that will offer a completely personalized driving experience.

Using the latest machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques, Land Rover’s self-learning SUV will offer a comprehensive array of services to the driver, courtesy of a new learning algorithm that recognizes who is in the car and learns their personal preferences and driving style. The software then applies this learning by using a range of variables including your calendar, the time of day, traffic conditions and the weather to predict driver behavior and take over many of the daily driving “chores”, allowing the driver to concentrate on the road.

This innovative and fascinating technology will recognize the driver by the Smartphone or other device and by the time the driver has opened the car door, the mirrors, steering wheel and seat settings will all be set to the individual’s preferences!  The cabin will be pre-set to the desired temperature, and be intelligent enough to change it if it is snowing or raining.   Through the ‘Smart Assistant’, the car will also review your schedule for the day and intelligently pre-set the navigation depending on traffic conditions to avoid congestion. It will also predict your next destination based on your schedule.   Now that’s impressive.

The self-learning Land Rover will also be able to learn an individual’s driving style in a range of traffic conditions and on different types of road. When the driver activates Auto Adaptive Cruise Control (AACC) the car will be able to apply these learned distance settings and acceleration profiles to automated cruise control.

Some other features include:
– Destination Prediction – automatic destination entry to navigation system based on historical usage.
– Fuel Assist– suggests fuel stations which have the driver’s preferred brand and location, based on historical usage. The car will let you know if you have enough fuel before long journeys the day before you travel.
– Predictive Phone Call – predicts who you are likely to call in a certain situation.
– Passenger Awareness – will activate passenger preferred infotainment settings and personal climate zones.
– Intelligent Notifications – based on traffic situation, the car can alert people that you will be late or provide relevant contextual updates such as flight delays on your drive to the airport.

All of us here at Land Rover Frisco agree that this is some seriously impressive stuff, and you can delve deeper into the realm of the new self-learning Land Rover by contacting us at 972-370-2345.  In the meantime we invite you to sit back and take a gander at the video below.

Tackle That Terrain!

At Land Rover Frisco in Frisco, Texas we realize that from time to time you may want to venture off the beaten path onto more adventurous landscapes so that you can put your vehicle to the test.   Luckily for you, we incorporated the one-of-a-kind Land Rover Terrain Response system that rests at your fingertips to help you along the way.terrain

The patented Terrain Response system allows you to select one of several modes that optimizes performance on a variety of different surfaces.  And with the recent advent of Terrain Response 2 Auto, you now have the option of letting 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.

Here are the different modes briefly explained:

GENERAL DRIVING
This is for driving on paved roads around town and 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
To counter loose sand, 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.
