Cross Linking Air Suspension
 
I wonder how hard it would be to link the front and rear sides together for better articulation like the range rovers. As it is now the QL doesn't have the best articulation in either off road modes.

Maybe it will be updated in later models to offer this feature....

Just thinking about this today. It seems like such a simple solution to implement but Land Rover may hold a patent on it.

Unless I am missing something that will be bad for on road handling. When doing rear air bags on trucks you not suppose to link them together like that because in a hard corner as the vehicle leans the air from the bag being compressed will just move to the opposite bag causing it to raise.

I think Land Rover uses electronic check valves to prevent such things.
