Land Rover 4X4 convoy driving on muddy forest road.

Always try to avoid wheel spin as it results in loss of momentum and can cause environmental damage.


Get to places other vehicles simply can’t. Land Rover’s Traction Control drives power to the wheels with the most traction, so you can keep steady momentum, even in deep mud.



In deep mud, you need steady momentum to carry you through. Engage Mud and Ruts on Terrain Response, and use a low-range gear like 2nd or 3rd.

Your tyres will cut through mud to find traction on firmer ground below. All new Land Rovers have built-in Traction Control, which drives power to the wheels with the most traction.

If your wheels do start to spin, ease off the throttle and slow the tyres to regain grip.



A rut is a long deep track created by the repeated passage of vehicles. Try to straddle deep ruts, as this keeps your environmental impact to a minimum.

If muddy conditions force you to drive in ruts, make sure you know where your front wheels are pointing. Check the Wheel Direction Indicator if available.

Try to keep your lowest point clear of the ground at all times. Terrain Response will automatically raise the vehicle to an optimum height.



When climbing muddy hills, remember that you’ll need more momentum to balance the decrease in traction.

The figures provided are as a result of official manufacturer's tests in accordance with EU legislation. A vehicle's actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.

The figures provided are NEDCeq calculated from official manufacturer’s WLTP tests in accordance with EU legislation. For comparison purposes only. Real world figures may differ. CO2 and fuel economy figures may vary according to wheel fitment and optional extras fitted. NEDCeq are figures calculated using a Government formula from WLTP figures equivalent to what they would have been under the old NEDC test. The correct tax treatment can then be applied.

The figures provided are WLTP. WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO2 figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.

TEL (Test Energy Low) and TEH (Test Energy High) figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. TEL refers to the lowest/most economical figures (with the lightest set of options). TEH refers to the highest/least economical figures (with the heaviest set of options). WLTP legislation dictates that where there is <5g CO2 variance between TEL and TEH, only the TEH is declared.
