JL Hill Descent Control Tested0
PAOLI, Pa. (Jan 15th, 2019) – In this episode of ExtremeTerrain’s Throttle Out YouTube Series, Ryan Huck takes a 2018 JLU to Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Pine Grove, PA to test the Hill Descent control (HDC). This new feature, available in the JL Wrangler, is only intended for low speed off-road driving. When HDC is activated in 4-low, it automatically applies the brakes while descending hills at speeds below 30 MPH.While using this feature, the driver has control over the exact speed the vehicle will descend — even over bumps, stair steps, and jagged rocks.In addition to his explanation, Ryan walks through, step-by-step, how to activate HDC as well as demonstrating the feature’s capabilities in real-life situations on the trail. Using two different areas of the park for his demonstrations, Ryan tests how well the HDC can handle a variety of trails and surfaces.
