Land Rover has shared U.S. pricing information for the 2013 Range Rover. While the Brits may be forking over more than $110,000 for a Rangie, buyers stateside will need to come up with $83,500 (*including destination). A top-of-the-line Autobiography edition of the Range Rover will set you back $130,950. That's an increase of $3,250 versus the current base Range Rover, and a jump of $4,285 for the Autobiography trim.

So why the disparity in base price between the UK Range Rover and the one set for the Yanks? Well, the the price for a TDV6 Range in the UK is £71,295, which includes Britain's rather substantial Value Added Tax. Conversion rates put that figure at $114,140 U.S., so that could explain most of it. There may be differences in standard equipment, too.

The North American Range Rover, along with the UK version, will feature Land Rover's new Terrain Response 2 management system, as we've previously dived into. That, combined with the 700-pound diet should make for one capable luxury 'ute.

The 2013 Range Rover will be sold in 170 markets internationally and will hit U.S. showrooms later this winter. Check out the press release below for the new Range Rover's U.S. debut.

The reveal was held at the 30,000 square-foot home on the former Frick estate in New York City suburb, Alpine, New Jersey.

"The debut of the all-new Range Rover is a momentous occasion for Land Rover and our loyal owners," said Kim McCullough, Brand Vice President, Land Rover, North America. "Our customers are incredible brand enthusiasts so they share in the excitement of the U.S. debut of the all-new Range Rover."

In front of an audience of individually selected loyal customers, the uniquely capable all-new Range Rover made an appropriate arrival traversing a rocky angled path to enter the stunning backyard gardens of The Stone Mansion, where the guests got their first chance for an up-close look at the highly anticipated new vehicles.

Attendees were also given the opportunity to tour the mansion, which boasts five floors of 12 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, indoor basketball court, movie theatre, 11-car garage, 4000-bottle wine cellar and elevator, while enjoying the experience of first class catering and cocktails.

The model was developed from the ground up and equipped with legendary Land Rover off-road capability and transformed on-road handling and agility. The vehicle is unmistakably a Range Rover in design and performance, still capturing the innovative spirit and iconic design of the original model, but with a more spacious and luxurious interior to enhance the driver's experience.

      If I could afford it, I'd probably get one. A few of my friends own Rang Rovers, and they drive pretty well. $90 is a little out of my price range in this market. In about 2 years, when one comes back of lease for the $40K - $45K range, then I'll grab one. I'll stick to my E-Class in the time being.

      I love this car and will be ordering mine next month. Reason? No one makes a car that's blend this level of luxury and refinement with this amount of offload ability. I've owned a Land Rover before and have been delighted with the customer experience and reliability. Land Rover are also really good at providing customised parts for their offroaders when customers like me phone them up and ask them do you make that? The fact that this is made out of aluminium seals the del. kind of sad to see my 5 year old Sport going though....

          It's a machine, it's going to fatigue and break. True their reliability has been historically poor, but has improved some under Tata (the design harkens back to the BMW/Ford drawing rooms though for the last generation RR). I suspect since this RR has been designed primarily by Tata with some Ford carryovers, the reliability will be better. Also there is something to be said for Art. It is one of the most beautiful vehicles on the market today and there's nothing foolish for buying a vehicle because you're aesthetically attracted to it. It's not like it doesn't run or go offroad, it just breaks slightly more frequently than the Land Cruiser for instance (such an eyesore with no design direction or heritage).

          The same can be said about you and your precious BMW, which coincidentally has a no better reliability track record. So you too are a fool who parted with your $$$ because I'm 100% positive your Bimmer did not appreciate in value. It is his money, let him buy what he pleases... I don't see how him buying his dream car could possibly be a problem to you.

      Thank you Autoblog for posting this. With a starting price of about $84K it's a total bargain for a vehicle this capable, this well built and refined. I have totally fallen in love with the new Range Rover and it makes the current model seem very old in comparison. The current Range Rover is widely known as the best automobile in the world and this new Range Rover has raised the bar substantially. I have to say that if I were given a choice between a Rolls-Royce Phantom, Bentley Flying Spur or the new Range Rover I would choose the new Range Rover in a heartbeat. The new model is unmistakably a Range Rover and according to all reports, it is substantially more refined than any luxury SUV and even top end luxury sedans. I am also extremely glad they were able to improve the off-road capability, which is a very tall order. I would still like to see those instantly deployable spiked tires available as an option - like those shown on the Defender concept. Additionally, today Autocar posted some cool new details regarding the extremely high standards to which this new Range Rover is built. Definitely worth checking out - http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/2013-range-rover-4/2013-range-rover-4-specification-revealed-exclusive-gallery .

          HAAAA!!!! Whatever! People still don't want to read the Autocar article do they. Are you afraid of the FACTS that the new Range Rover is a tremendously phenomenal/capable top-end luxury vehicle! - Because that's nothing new. The Range Rover has been the best of the best - or I should say the BEST4X4XFAR for a very long time. I definitely love Land Rovers and have been an enthusiast for decades - and I am always impressed to see Land Rover going from strength to strength - as usual I'd say. I thanked Autoblog for posting the U.S. pricing because I had been waiting to see what the price was going to be as Land Rover had not posted official U.S. pricing on their website yet. Look, if top-end luxury vehicles are not your cup of tea that's fine, but there is no reason to make up silly lies and accusations just because you all are not interested in luxury automobiles. I'm not a fan of 70's muscle cars but you don't see me posting a bunch of hatred and screwy accusations just because I'm not a fan. You know why? It's because I am a car enthusiast! And I can still appreciate other car enthusiast's passion for those vehicles.

      Ford did a better job of engineering this explorer to range rover up convert than dodge did with the Durango to mercedes gl upconvert it'd be nice if we could see a more reasonable Lincoln version Maybe one day ford will even let us get a Lincoln version of the xf or xj that they engineer for Tata's jaguar brand (yes we are all aware that ford engineers range rover and Tata motors now owns range rover who markets and manufactures at ford specs)

        I am not sure what you're talking about...but the 5.0s in the Jags aren't Coyote engines or related to the Coyote at all. They are just another evolution of the AJ-V8 series of motors that have existed in the Jaguar and Land Rover line for the past 16 years or so. Even Aston V8s for the Vantage are derived from the AJ motors with alterations made to them during their hand-building. Additionally, the Jaguar 5.0 is direct injected...the Mustang isn't. There's probably a plethora of other differences too.

          ... You dont think that tata engineers the new ranger rover all by them selves... And it magically gets a replica of ford explorer subframes, awd, exterior pieces do you? Or that the jag xf uses a mustang/f150 5.0 v8 on accident? Does it bother you when a company buys the rights to sell brand engineering? Cuz that's life and joint ventures are all over the market..

        Ford does not engineer them. They just supply the engines which will stop as soon as JLR's own engine plant opens up soon. Tata is much bigger congolomerate than Ford with over US $83 billion in sales last year.

      Wow- talk about not getting economics and purchasing power- you really should do a little research into how money works and how direct conversions are not the answer. Try looking at a magazine called the "Economist" and look at purchasing power that would be a good start.

          A modern limo or "sedan" should be just that--luxurious. Only a parvenu individual would think that a limo is something as tacky as a stretched sedan. Sure both are "limos," but call any limo service for a car and you're likely to get a sedan. In some very elegant hotels, they send a Rolls-Royce as your sedan to pick you up from the airport. The new RR has style, comfort with the plush rear seats, personal A/V and A/C controls. It, in fact, IS capable off road, so indeed it is the perfect package of capable off-roader and "sedan," or limo if you will. Who would be embarrassed too arrive at a Mandrian Oriental hotel, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, The W, or Westin in a RR?? Nobody, absolutely nobody. Indeed it is a great all in one SUV.

        Wow, that is a pretty grim lineup of stupidmobiles. If you had any real intentions of off-road use, you would select a Jeep or basic 4WD pickup truck.
