Land Rover Demonstrates Advanced Tow Assist In New Discovery

New Discovery is highly desirable with unrivalled capability and technology like no other. It has been designed from the outset to enable Land Rover customers to live the lifestyle they aspire to. The result is the best family SUV in the world.

New Discovery has been fitted with advanced semi-autonomous technology to make the task of towing a trailer or horsebox as safe and simple as possible. Paired with the vehicle’s class-leading towing capacity of up to 3,500kg* this technology makes New Discovery the most capable tow vehicle in its class.

* Varies by market: 3,720kg in USA

Advanced Tow Assist takes the stress out of reversing by allowing the driver to guide a trailer, horsebox or caravan into position without using the steering wheel. The 10-inch touchscreen displays the road behind with responsive trajectory lines showing the anticipated direction of travel. The driver uses the Terrain Response 2 dial on the central console to guide the trailer into the desired parking spot. The driver is able to reverse park trailers with absolute confidence as the vehicle automatically calculates the necessary steering inputs. The intuitive system will alert the driver if the steering input requested is too severe and would cause a jackknife situation.
