2017 Range Rover Evoque

USING ALL TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL (ATPC)

CAUTION

Do not attempt a steep descent if All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is not enabled, or if any warning messages are displayed in the message center.

CAUTION

The driver must maintain full control of the steering and brakes at all times.

For vehicles with ATPC, the Hill Descent Control (HDC) button performs multiple functions. The button alternates between both the ATPC and HDC features, and also enables or disables each feature. See HILL DESCENT CONTROL (HDC) OVERVIEW.

NOTES

Park assist, wade sensing, and auto stop/start are disabled while ATPC is in operation. The vehicle's cruise control and speed limiter systems are also disabled.

With both features switched off, the button sequence is as follows:

  1. Press and release the button to enable ATPC. An instrument panel warning lamp illuminates to confirm. See ALL TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL (ATPC) (AMBER).

  2. Within 4 seconds, press and release the button again to enable HDC. An instrument panel warning lamp illuminates to confirm. See HILL DESCENT CONTROL (HDC) (GREEN).

    NOTES

    If the second press of the button is after 4 seconds, ATPC switches off. If required, start the sequence again.

    NOTES

    ATPC is automatically deselected if the ignition is switched off for more than 6 hours.

  3. When required, press and release the button to disable. The relevant warning lamp extinguishes to confirm.

NOTES

The driver’s seat belt must be buckled and all of the doors must be completely closed to enable ATPC.

NOTES

ATPC is also disabled during operation of the park assist or wade sensing features.

When enabled, ATPC defaults to descent control mode, i.e., the system only limits the vehicle's downhill speed, using the brakes.

Descent control mode should be used in the event that the vehicle is to make a descent:

  • Select the required position for the gear selector.

  • Release the vehicle's brakes to allow gravity to make the vehicle progress, up to the minimum feature speed of 1.1 mph (1.8 km/h).

  • ATPC maintains this speed, unless ATPC detects the use of the accelerator or brake pedals, or the SET+ button on the steering wheel controls. See HILL DESCENT CONTROL (HDC) OVERVIEW.

    NOTES

    Descent control mode resumes when the accelerator pedal, or the brake pedal, is released, and the steering wheel's SET+ button is not used.

    NOTES

    If the steering wheel's SET+ button is used, then ATPC changes to full function mode. See ALL TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL (ATPC) SETTINGS.

Full function mode controls the vehicle's speed via the use of both the brakes and engine torque.

Full function mode should be used for all other maneuvers that require the use of ATPC. For example, making an ascent, pulling away from a standstill, and driving on unstable and slippery driving surfaces.

NOTES

Full function mode does not operate with the gear selector in the Neutral (N) position. In this event, a message displays in the message center.

NOTES

Press and hold the brake pedal, while using the SET+ button when the vehicle is stationary.

ATPC can also be enabled while the vehicle is moving, with no brakes applied.

NOTES

If the vehicle's brakes are firmly applied, during operation of ATPC, the system exits full function mode and reverts to descent control mode.

NOTES

Light and gentle application of the brake pedal, during ATPC operation, lowers the vehicle's target speed. When the brake pedal is fully released, ATPC maintains the speed at which the brake pedal was released.

NOTES

The driver can override ATPC operation at any time, using the brake pedal or the accelerator pedal.

NOTES

If the vehicle's speed exceeds 18.6 mph (30 km/h), ATPC operation is suspended. ATPC is then in standby mode, until the vehicle's speed is less than 18.6 mph (30 km/h).

NOTES

If the vehicle's speed exceeds 50 mph (80 km/h), ATPC is disabled. If required, ATPC will have to be switched on again.

When ATPC is enabled and the brake pedal is fully released, the system helps to provide controlled and progressive assistance for the vehicle to:

  • Pull away from a standstill, in a forward or reverse direction on level ground, and uphill or downhill.

  • Perform low speed maneuevring in a forward or reverse direction.

  • Make progress and maintain a selected target (set) speed, up to a maximum of 18.6 mph (30 km/h).

In the event that the vehicle's brake temperatures exceed the normal operating limits, a warning message displays in the message center. In this event, ATPC fades-out and becomes temporarily inactive. When the brakes have returned to normal operating temperatures, the message extinguishes and ATPC resumes normal operation.
