OFF-ROADING SKILLS

Quick tips and techniques for dealing with off-road environments.

DRIVING THROUGH MUD
Engage Mud and Ruts on Terrain Response. Try to stay within existing tracks. Keep the wheels straight and use the information screen to guide you.

DRIVING ON SAND
Engage Sand on Terrain Response. The key to crossing sand is to know how firm the surface is. You need to maintain momentum to drive over the sand, not sink into it.

DRIVING THROUGH WATER
Try to work out how deep the water is. In static, shallower water, explore on foot and use a stick to gauge the depth - or watch another vehicle go through.

DRIVING ON HILLS
Going uphill, approach the hill straight on and use the highest gear possible. Never turn the vehicle on a steep slope. Going downhill, engage Hill Descent Control.

DRIVING ON ROCKS
Before crossing rocks and scree, get out of your vehicle and assess the risks. Select Rock Crawl on Terrain Response; this will engage low-range gears.

DRIVING ON GRAVEL
Engage Grass/Gravel/Snow on Terrain Response. Gravel is a constantly changing, low-grip surface, so always drive at a slow speed.

INNOVATION
STRUCTURED LASER LIGHT TECHNOLOGY

Land Rover Innovation Lab is working on a series of “Advanced Sensor Technologies”. Structured Laser Light is a near future technology that will help Land Rover vehicles automatically adjust suspension to deliver comfort on any terrain. The car projects a grid of laser light onto the ground ahead; obstacles and potholes distort the grid and alert the system, leaving you to enjoy your in-car driving experience. Watch the film or visit the Innovation Lab to find out more.
