Upgraded CommandShift® Adaptive Automatic Transmission is fitted to the automatic LR-V8. It adapts to your individual driving style and the prevailing surface conditions. So you get improved fuel economy through a wider range of torque, plus 10 percent faster shift times with sport shift.

Hill Descent Control allows a smooth, controlled descent down difficult terrain without the need to use the brake or accelerator. Gradient Release Control enhances this by providing smoother, more gradual acceleration when confronted by a steep incline. It operates automatically whenever Hill Descent Control is engaged, temporarily maintaining brake pressure after you’ve released the brake pedal, then gradually increasing speed until your optimum off-road pace is attained.  The air suspension can raise the ride height up to 4.92 inches for extreme off-road use and also has an access mode that lowers the vehicle by 2 inches for easier entry, exit and loading. The 2012 Land Rover LR4 suspension delivers the most comfortable of rides. Its self-levelling feature yields outstanding handling and composure, working effortlessly with a wide range of vehicle loads.

 The system optimizes Land Rover LR4 set-up for different terrain conditions and inspires supreme confidence over mud, gravel, grass, snow, and rocks, while delivering uncompromising performance on tarmac. Terrain Response also incorporates Sand Launch Control (SLC) and Rock Crawl (RC). Sand Launch Control helps prevent wheel spin and the vehicle ‘digging in’ when moving off from a standstill, while Rock Crawl delivers more vehicle composure by applying light brake forces.

Four corner electronic air suspension is fitted to all LR4 models as standard. Complementing the advanced driving technology, such as Dynamic Stability Control, it ensures outstanding handling across almost any terrain. Dynamic Stability Control improves the vehicle’s handling during acceleration or cornering. It also helps compensate for vehicle handling when towing a trailer. By constantly monitoring the wheels, it detects any deviation from the chosen line and immediately corrects it by applying braking to appropriate wheels. Roll Stability Control works in conjunction with Dynamic Stability Control to help prevent vehicle roll-over. If the system senses that the vehicle is in danger of tipping, it will reduce engine power and use the ABS system to reduce the chance of roll-over. Trailer Stability Assist automatically detects the presence of a trailer. Once 37mph is reached, the sensors monitor the behavior of the trailer. Should any swaying or oscillation occur, the system uses selective braking of the appropriate wheels to help correct any potential problem.
