Land Rover News

Land Rover is a high-end off-road brand that developed from a single model of the same name originally sold by Rover. The British company based in Solihull, West Midlands was once owned by BMW, then bought by Ford and was finally sold to Tata Motors along with Jaguar in 2008. Land Rover is considered to be the second oldest off-road brand in the world behind Jeep.

    Great Britain's original off-roader will be ending production in 2015, 67 years after it started rolling out of factories.

    Brazil is the place to be, apparently. Toyota has been investing in the South American country, as has BMW, which announced a $261 million investment in October 2012. The high-end immigration is only set to continue, as Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar-Land Rover have both announced plans to set up manufacturing operations there. Mercedes is the big news here, ...

    Ever seen a toddler that just discovered they joys of sprinting? Yes? Then you'll know the next thing they discover is their natural speed limit, when their legs can't move as quickly as their mind demands. The end result is scrapped knees and many tears. The same thing is kind of happening with Land Rover right now, albeit in slow motion. On the back of ...

    1380146460

    The success of Jaguar Land Rover in recent years has largely been down to a resurgent product lineup, but a recent move into the research and development will see the British-based, Indian-owned brands take the fight to its German rivals more aggressively than ever before.

    No, Land Rover's Range Rover hybrids can't drive on water. But they can survive some hardcore conditions.

    Land Rover may have ditched its naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 in favor of a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 on the new Ranger Rover due to fuel economy concerns, but don't think that the British off-road brand is content to sit on its laurels with the V6/V8 strategy.

    Frankfurt: Land Rover debuts Range Rover Hybrid, not bound for US
    1378902660

    Considering what year it is, it almost seems weird to say that Land Rover has just introduced its very first production hybrid here at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. After all, automakers have been getting into the gasoline-electric game for well over a decade now. Nevertheless, Landie's first hybrid vehicle is, of course, the flagship Range Rover, though ...

    Jaguar's long-rumored crossover won't be built on the same platform as the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, says the Australian site Car Advice. The future of the new CUV remains uncertain, but if Jaguar does dip its toes into the SUV/crossover pool, though, the new vehicle will likely be a car-based soft roader, lacking (or perhaps more appropriately, not ...

    Big as they are with all their differentials and transfer cases, SUVs are arguably better suited towards hybrid propulsion than most vehicles.

    Was it right for Chevrolet to detune the 1975 Corvette's base engine to 165 horsepower? Was Aston Martin wrong to make the Toyota iQ-based Cygnet? Is BMW crazy to be testing the new 1 Series with three-cylinder engines and front-wheel drive? It seems now, just as in the 1970s and 1980s, that emissions regulations and social considerations are driving some ...
