Land Rover reveals new off-road cruise control and HUD options for Range Rover line-up, while engine tweaks improve efficiency and performance

Land Rover has announced a series of updates for the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport

The updates include the option of a new All Terrain Progress Control system (ATPC), which acts as a cruise control function for off-road driving. The system allows drivers to set a speed, while the car's range of sensors adjusts its terrain settings automatically at speeds of up to 19mph.

The ATPC system costs £175, and is available on all Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models with the exception of the SDV6 Hybrid Sport.

Land Rover has also improved the efficiency and performance of its 3.0-litre, six-cylinder TDV6 and SDV6 engines. The TDV6 now features a single turbocharger in place of the old twin-turbocharged setup, but output from the engine is unchanged, at 281bhp and 443lb ft. Economy has improved by 8.5 per cent over the old unit, to 40.9mpg with CO2 emissions of 182g/km.

The Sport's SDV6 engine has been re-calibrated to increase performance to 302bhp and 516lb ft - increases of 14bhp and 73lb ft respectively. Economy has also improved by seven per cent, to 40.4mpg combined, alongside CO2 emissions of 185g/kqm.

Elsewhere in the range, Land Rover has also introduced the option of a Head-Up Display to the Range Rover line-up. A £1000 option, the HUD allows drivers to see information including speed, gear position and navigation data without looking down from the windscreen.

Both the HUD and ATPC systems are available to order now. You can see the ATPC system in action in Land Rover's video, below.
