What is Commandshift?

Land Rover SUVs have earned a worldwide reputation for their off-road prowess, but there’s more to these luxury models than meets the eye. If you’re on the road in your SUV and want to enjoy a sporty kick to your driving experience, Land Rover has implemented Commandshift on several different models. When your Land Rover automatic transmission is in “D” or “S” modes, select CommandShift to be able to manually switch the gears up and down. Simply pull the paddle next to the steering wheel to the left to down-shift, and pull it to the right to up-shift.

When Should I Use Commandshift?

The idea behind Commandshift is to give you the convenience of an automatic transmission in normal conditions, as well as the control of a manual when you want or need it. Specifically, this unique feature is useful when you want to get the RPMs up quickly to accelerate. You can also take advantage of this feature for engine braking on the other end of the spectrum.
