Land Rover Overview:
Last year, Land Rover unveiled the all-new Range Rover Evoque and for 2013 they are back with a completely redesigned flagship model in the Range Rover which gets an all-new aluminum frame and other additions for the new model year.
The Evoque represented a new direction for Land Rover, being its first crossover. Available with two- or four-doors, the Evoque is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 240-hp. A permanent all-wheel drive system comes standard and the terrain management system adapts the Evoque to whatever surface you happen to be driving. Although it has only been out for a short time, the Evoque won the North American Truck of the Year award last year.
Land Rover’s entry level model is the LR2 compact luxury SUV which gets minor updates for 2013, including a new 240-hp turbocharged engine and new styling. This very capable off-roader features 8.3 inches of ground clearance and permanent four-wheel drive. It also comes with a standard panoramic moonroof and leather upholstery.
For more space, the LR4 midsize luxury SUV offers seating for five- or seven-passengers. The LR4’s tech options got an overhaul in 2012, with updated audio, navigation, and rear-seat entertainment systems.
The most recognizable models Land Rover makes are the Range Rover and the slightly smaller and less expensive Range Rover Sport. For 2013, the flagship Range Rover got a complete redesign while the Range Rover Sport got more minor additions.
For 2013, the Range Rover Sport adds two special edition trims and minor styling updates for supercharged models. Inside, a navigation system and Bluetooth® connectivity are standard.
The Range Rover got a wheels-up makeover with a brand new aluminum unibody frame that helps the large SUV to shed 700 pounds compared to last year's model. This pays off in both fuel economy and performance. Exterior and interior styling is all-new as well. An air suspension and full-time four-wheel drive come standard.
