Land Rover will be recalling nearly 4,000 of its flagship Range Rover models over air bag concerns. The 2013 and 2014 model year SUVS use a connector for their seat-mounted airbags that may become disconnected, meaning the airbags wouldn't fire in the event of a collision.
2013 Land Rover Range Rover
The 2013 Range Rover is on waiting lists so long that Land Rover isn't even importing the base model for lack of sufficient uptake in view of limited resources. When that backlog is all cleared up, there's a 15-page booklet worth of changes coming for the 2014 model year, the biggest of which is the disappearance of the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine. It will be replaced in the base Range Rover and the HSE with a supercharged 3.0-liter V6.
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.
We see all sorts of publicity stunt road trips, but few seem as cool as spending 11 days driving almost 4,000 miles in a 2013 Range Rover Autobiography and sleeping each night in an equally plush Airstream trailer. This is exactly what Ben Samuelson, formerly of TVR, and his PR team did to show off the new Range Rover while driving it from England to Morocco and back.
The Land Rover Range Rover gave a wide, laid-back grin to the Paris Motor Show. Only the fourth change in body style in 41 years, this one has finally been given some angles and curves and a bit of rake, still certifiably a Range Rover but there's more going on than we're used to. Luckily it has more cargo room so it can carry around the haul of commentary its looks have gathered, such as the polarizing headlight and taillights reminiscent of a Ford Explorer, the three-slat vent motif on the fro
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.
Now that you've seen the photos of and read our deep dive into the 2013 Range Rover, no doubt a few of you will want to know just how much lucre you'll need to put one in your five-car garage. The number you're looking for is £71,295 ($114,140 U.S., but that includes Britain's hefty VAT and other taxes) for the 3.0-litre Vogue TDV6 diesel on the lowest rung.
The opportunity to succeed an icon doesn't come along all that often for automakers, and when it does, you'd best make a big fuss about it. That marketing message was well received by team Land Rover, who hosted a gala shindig for their 2013 Range Rover reveal in London on Friday night. A brace of the new SUVs rolled out to the assembled throngs at the Royal Ballet School in London's Richmond Park, with the lead Landie wading dramatically through a deep pool of water and onto the main stage as k
Not long after a few images leaked onto the web, Land Rover has officially pulled the wraps off of its larger, lighter 2013 Range Rover. We still don't know if we love the new design – some of our staffers stating that it looks a bit Ford Flex-ish to us – but one thing's for sure, that new body sheds a whole mess of pounds compared to the current model.
Our spy photographers have snagged a few fresh images of the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover as engineers put the SUV through its paces during a little winter testing. The prototype looks identical to the bruiser we say playing around on the Nürburgring last year. Details were scarce then and they remain so now, though this batch of photos show the big Rover's interior for the first time. From the looks of things, the cabin doesn't seem to have received much in the way of an update, though ther
