Range-Rover-Heads-Up-Display

 

Land Rover has announced a series of updates for the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. The revisions include Land Rover’s All-Terrain Progress Control system aimed at improving the Range Rover’s off-road capability. Significant gains in both performance and efficiency are achieved through enhanced six-cylinder diesel engines.  For added convenience, Head-Up Display (HUD) projects key driving information onto a small area of the windscreen, while a new paint colour update has been added to the exterior colour palette.

 

“Range Rover and Range Rover Sport offer an unrivalled combination of performance, efficiency, design leadership and off-road capability,” says Phil Popham, Group Marketing Director, Jaguar Land Rover. “Our latest updates capitalise on these strengths, with our ground-breaking new All Terrain Progress Control, along with extra-efficient six-cylinder engines, which underline Land Rover’s commitment to sustainability.”

 

All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) allows the driver to input a desired speed, either from rest or an existing speed, without any pedal inputs once the brake is released. The system continuously monitors and adjusts the vehicle settings to optimise traction and maintain progress in all conditions.

 

ATPC reduces driver workload to enhance Range Rover’s off road capability, maintaining composure over steep gradients, rough terrain and low-grip surfaces.  It is particularly beneficial in challenging off road environments where a very low constant speed is desirable.  ATPC works both in forward and reverse gears and is operational from 1mph to 19mph (1.8kmph to 30kmph).

 

Available on Range Rover TDV6, Range Rover Sport SDV6 (not including SDV6 Hybrid) and all V8 Supercharged derivatives, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are the first models to feature this new technology.

 

The performance and fuel economy of Land Rover’s 3.0-litre 6-cylinder engines has been enhanced further. Previously equipped with twin-turbocharging technology, Range Rover TDV6 derivatives now adopt a ball-bearing single turbocharger. Along with Low Pressure Exhaust Gas Recirculation (LPEGR), a two-stage oil pump that reduces parasitic engine losses and a revised design of fuel-injector nozzle, the TDV6 continues to produce 258PS and 600Nm. Fuel efficiency, however, significantly increases: TDV6 improves by an impressive 8.5 per cent.

 

Range Rover Sport SDV6 derivatives retain parallel-sequential turbocharging, but detail calibration changes increase performance to 306PS and 700Nm, increases of 14PS and 100Nm respectively.  LPEGR, a two-stage oil pump and revised fuel-injector nozzles also increase fuel efficiency. The result is a 7.0 per cent improvement at 7.0 litre per 100km and 185g/km.

 

Head-Up Display (HUD) debuts on Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, projecting key information onto the windscreen. It allows drivers to view relevant information more quickly without glancing away from the road. HUD data includes vehicle speed, gear position and shift indicator, cruise-control information, satellite-navigation instructions and Traffic-Sign Recognition. For maximum convenience, the driver can pre-select which information is displayed.

 

Both Range Rover derivatives are now available with an updated colour palette featuring the Yulong White.
