    which rely on oil pressure these are actuated by the positive and negative torques generated by the opening and closing of the valves reducing energy consumption Camprofile switching CPS selects either a profile suitable for low speed running or another which gives increased lift for high performance This provides the Discovery 4 with exceptional low end torque to negotiate demanding terrain and allows it to become fleet of foot when conditions allow Torque and power is also optimised by a variable inlet manifold which changes the length of its eight inlet tracts The manifold switches between a 680mm inlet tract to provide high torque at low revs and a 350mm inlet path allowing maximum power at high revs The precise position is optimised throughout the rev range at all times The engine also features a unique reverse flow cooling system where coolant passes through the cylinder heads before the block This allows the heads to remain cooler and the knock threshold is pushed further back for greater efficiency An oil to water heat exchanger also transfers heat from the coolant to the engine oil These features promote faster engine warm up for reduced emissions and enables the cabin to warm up faster too Frictional losses have been reduced by the use of Diamond Like Carbon Coating DLC on some components an intelligent oil pump pressure relief valve PRV to optimise oil pressure and the use of lower viscosity 5W 20 oil further reduces parasitic losses without compromising durability The LR V8 engine continues to justify its position as one of the finest engines in its class having set new standards for efficiency power and torque that remain hard to beat The combination of advanced technology and light weight make it the ideal power unit complementing the Discovery 4 s off road and on road capability said Murray Dietsch Director of Land Rover Programmes Superb 6 speed automatic transmission The LR V8 drives through the ultra refined ZF HP28 6 speed automatic transmission Its characteristics have been optimized by Land Rover engineers to provide the same class leading response with rapid and refined shifts The superior power and torque characteristics of the engine make it possible to actuate the transmission s lock up clutches much earlier in each gear reducing slip through the hydraulic torque converter optimizing both fuel consumption and CO 2 emissions Advanced chassis suspension and brakes The Discovery 4 suspension system was substantially revised for 2010 model year with changes to roll centres anti roll bars suspension knuckles damper bushes and the addition of a variable ratio steering rack for greater stability during high speed cruising and increased sensitivity at acute steering angles More powerful brakes comprised twin piston sliding callipers with 360mm ventilated discs at the front and single piston with 350mm ventilated discs at the rear The understeer control system which intervenes by automatically slowing the vehicle to bring it back under driver control was also revised These features remain unchanged in 2012 for all versions of the Discovery 4 Off road ability remains top of the class for 2012 When it comes to off road ability Land Rover vehicles are acknowledged as setting the standards for others to follow with its acclaimed Terrain Response TM system For 2011 two additional functions were added Hill Start Assist and Gradient Acceleration Control Hill Start Assistretains the initial driver generated brake pressure long enough for the foot to move from brake pedal to throttle without the car rolling backwards The brake is released after a sufficient time has elapsed or when the engine is supplying enough torque to move the car up the hill Hill Start Assist is always available not selectable and neither is its operation indicated to the driver Gradient Acceleration Controlis designed to provide safety cover on severe gradients when the driver does not have Hill Descent Control engaged By pressurising the brake system Gradient Acceleration Control slows the car to a limit determined by the throttle position when the car is descending the slope in the driver s intended direction of travel This includes descending the slope forwards in drive or rearwards in reverse Otherwise such as descending while facing up the gradient with Drive selected Gradient Acceleration Control restricts speed to 5km h 3 1mph for up to 20 seconds allowing the driver to regain proper control These advanced all terrain functions have proven themselves to be world class since their introduction last year Both are subtle but effective additions which deliver an added layer of safety to drives who want to venture further afield said Nick Veale Vehicle Engineering Manager Three new option packs Three new option packs are available to customers for 2012 the Technology Pack HSE Luxury Pack and the Vision Assist Pack The Technology Pack includes Premium Navigation incorporating 4x4i off road navigation as well as Say What You See voice activation and Parking Aids for the front and rear with rear view cameras The HSE Luxury Pack includes Xenon Adaptive Front Headlamps including Cornering Lamps Harman Kardon LOGIC7 17 speaker 825W audio system Premium Leather Pack full length roof rails in satin black electric steering column adjustment for height and reach and an electric tilt slide sunroof and the front centre console holds a cooler box The Vision Assist Pack has Xenon Adaptive Front Headlamps including Cornering Lamps Automatic Headlamps with High Beam Assist and the Surround Camera System including Approach Lamps Tow Assist and Tow Hitch Assist Detail and design improvements for 2012 For 2012 crisp new steering column stalks with chrome bezels provide clearer symbols and a new premium pebble like design to the smart key makes it both more attractive and easier to carry Externally a new 19 alloy wheel comes as standard on the HSE whilst a Gloss Black 20 5 split spoke wheel design and extended Satin Black roof rails are available as customer options across the range The Timed Climate feature which pre heats the cabin and engine
