Had your eye on Land Rover's new all-singing, all-dancing 2013 Range Rover? You're not alone – and hopefully you were smart enough to already put down a deposit. The capability- and lux-laden sport utility vehicle began trickling into dealers in December, but is already "sold out for six months to a year," says Chris Marchand, executive vice president of operations at Jaguar Land Rover North America.

That's according to Automotive News, which notes that limited supply issues have made Land Rover shift all North American deliveries to the $88,545 HSE trim or higher instead of the $83,545 base model. The move should not only help dealer profits, it apparently better matches the buying patterns established by the outgoing model – shoppers of the L322 generation skipped out on the base spec and went right for costlier models with more luxury trappings.

It isn't immediately clear when Land Rover thinks it will be able to catch up to the Range Rover's order bank, but keeping the vehicle in high demand should assure higher transaction prices. As Land Rover is still ramping up its marketing efforts for their latest range topper, it's possible that wait lists could get even longer as more people find out about the new model.

Despite the shortage of vehicles, Automotive News says that Land Rover remains confident that its 2013 sales total will outpace last year's 43,664-unit total.

      I gotta give em props. People are willing to keep shelling out $90k+ for a suv thats unreliable and has soul crushing depreciation. In 7 years those RR's will be on the sketchy used car lot for $4000

        I have a few friends who drive RR's and they are fully aware of the issues, yet they still love the cars. If I wanted to spend that kind of money on an SUV, I'd go with a GL, but some people just want the RR image...crazy, yes.

          Yep, the Rovers seem to lose value twice as fast as other luxury SUV's.

      I absolutely LOVE how almost everyone was saying how ugly this vehicle was when pictures started coming out, yet the is a six month waiting list.... Alot of people hated the Evoque when it first came out too, but it does nothing but win awards. Guess the people that can actually BUY these beautiful SUV's are the opinions that really matter.

        LMAO so true. The so called enthusiasts don't know crap about what the real buying public wants. Most people here buy used anyways.

      I truly admire the new range rover. Looks great, but I know some former owners that were elated to get rid of their RR. 20% drop in value off the lot and tons of electronic problems. Looks great and all, but lease it.

      For all those jumping on Range Rover and resale value -- consider the facts before dishing the hate: BMW X5 ALG Residual % in 60 months: 36% Porsche Cayenne ALG Residual % in 60 months: 34% Range Rover ALG Residual % in 60 months: 32% Jeep Grand Cherokee ALG Residual % in 60 months: 32% MB GL Class ALG Residual % in 60 months: 30% Cadillac Escalade ALG Residual % in 60 months: 30% None of these vehicles keep their value!

        You may be right about the residual values of the other SUVs but in the real world they all do better sales and value wise than the Range. Not to mention the reliability,(or lack there of) of the Range Rover(TaTa Motors) product. Range Rover products are absolutely the worse in luxury SUV reliability. I know first hand....

        Think again, the price of these things drops like a rock after the warranty is up. Now whether someone can afford to maintain it is another story.
