There are perhaps plusses and minuses. When we designed features into products we tended to avoid those the amateur could accidentally select and damage equipment. For you, perhaps a no brainer, but I need two hands to count the number of times the spouse or daughters shifted the WJ or truck transfer case into 4Hi in mid summer and tried negotiating sharp turns of a parking lot. Then complained of the lack of power when they get home
For our family, automatic full lock without any way to override is highly desirable and I am grateful for it.
The range rover display is cool when it works... but I think most WK drivers are not tech heads and would be confused and not impressed. I'd rather have less information, or only the info required in nice large clear displays. Range Rover reviewers often mention how cluttered that dash is and how confusing it can be to the average Joe... who invariably miss improtant things in the clutter..
The 4WD sand mode thing in early models was apparently the traction controller getting confused by noise on the CAN bus, probably generated by a faulty sensor.
