Discovery Capability

Not only does the Land Rover Discovery offer powerful performance features that provide it with an impressive towing capacity, but it is also equipped with high-tech features to help you maintain control even when hauling a heavy load behind you and even on rough or low-traction terrain:

  • Advanced Tow Assist: This optional feature helps you control the direction of both your vehicle and your trailer (or item you’re towing) when driving in reverse.
  • Hill Descent Control®: This feature can be activated when you are driving down a steep hill–it brakes each individual wheel and helps you maintain a slow and steady speed for a safe descent.
  • Terrain Response® 2: This feature allows you to choose the best drive mode option for your driving style or the road conditions.
  • Dynamic Stability Control and Electronic Power Assisted Steering: This feature enhances your on-road capabilities to ensure you’re stable and you can steer confidently.
  • All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC): This available system helps you set and maintain a steady speed when driving over challenging road conditions. It works like low-speed cruise control and allows you to focus on steering and handling.
