Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control is a driver-assistance technology suite available in new Land Rover SUVs that enhances the more common cruise control features you find on most new cars. Land Rover cars come standard with the latest Cruise Control & Speed Limiter, which allows you to set a maximum speed to help you avoid breaking speed limits in Great Neck, while Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control goes further with its capabilities. Learn more below, and contact us at Land Rover Freeport if you have any questions!

How Does Adaptive Cruise Control Work?

  1. When Adaptive Cruise Control is engaged, the vehicle’s speed automatically reduces if a slower moving vehicle is detected in front of you.
  2. The system uses its sensors to maintain a safe following distance to the vehicle ahead.
  3. If the system detects that the slower moving vehicle is no longer present, it automatically raises your vehicle speed back up to the originally set cruise control speed.

Deactivating Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control automatically deactivates in certain scenarios, but will still retain the memory of its most recent settings. Below are reasons the system would deactivate while you are driving the Glen Cove roads:

  • The CAN button on the steering wheel is pressed
  • The brake pedal is pressed.
  • All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is selected.
  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) or Electronic Traction Control (ETC) activates.
  • The Electric Parking Brake (EPB) is applied.
  • Hill Descent Control (HDC) is selected.
  • When the speed limiter is in operation (when the pre-set speed limit has been reached).

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go / Queue Assist

New Land Rover models equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control are also accompanied by Stop & Go or Queue Assist–these are the same feature referred to by different names. Here’s how this smart cruise control feature works:

  1. This feature is used in slow-moving lines of heavy traffic.
  2. When the vehicle in front of you slows to a standstill, the system brings your vehicle to a standstill.
  3. When the vehicle in front of you moves forward again, tap the accelerator pedal and the system will continue to maintain a safe following distance.
  4. The following distance can be adjusted on your steering wheel-mounted controls.
