What is Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control?

2020 Land Rover Defender


Adaptive Cruise Control is a handy driver-assistance technology found in new Land Rover models that enhances typical cruise control features that are found on most vehicles. Land Rover vehicles come standard with Cruise Control and Speed Limited that allows you to set a maximum speed to help you avoid breaking speed limits in Minneapolis, while Land Rover Adaptive Cruise Control goes further with its capabilities. Learn more about this technology, as well as what models have adaptive cruise control below. Don’t hesitate to contact our team if you have any questions.

How Does Adaptive Cruise Control Work?

  1. When Adaptive Cruise Control is engaged, your vehicle’s speed gets automatically reduced 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 that’s ahead of you.
  3. If the system detects that the slower-moving vehicle is no longer present, it automatically raises your speed back up to the original set cruise control speed.

How to Deactivate Adaptive Cruise Control

The Adaptive Cruise Control automatically deactivates in certain scenarios but retains the memory of its most recent settings. Below are several reasons why the system would deactivate while you’re driving on the roads in the Eden Prairie area:

  • 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 Electronic 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 are equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control as well as Stop & Go or Queue Assist – these are the same feature just referred to by different names. Here’s a rundown on how this advanced technology works:

  1. It’s 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 starts moving forward again, tap the accelerator pedal and the system will keep maintaining a safe following distance.
  4. You can adjust the following distance on your steering wheel-mounted controls.
