LR2 Replacement Arrives In Early 2015, Priced From $37,995*

Land Rover's latest product offensive has targeted the brand's high-end Range Rover line, with the eponymous fullsize model receiving rave reviews alongside critical acclaim for the midsize Sport and compact Evoque.

Engineers have a heck of a job on their hands developing any new model, but when it comes to an SUV, they've got to conduct testing both on the road and off. That's why, in preparation to launch the all-new Discovery Sport, the development team at Land Rover has built 181 prototypes that have already covered some 750,000 miles over all manner of terrain. The prototypes have waded through two feet of water, climbed up 40-degree inclines and down 45-degree grades and endured temperatures from -33

19Land Rover previews new seven-seat Discovery Sport

Every automaker has its own way of revealing its new models. Some just pull the veil off the thing when it's ready, while others release hints and teasers leading up to the full reveal. Jaguar Land Rover seems to be taking a different approach, purposely releasing images of its new products wearing camouflaging body wraps before taking those wraps off at long last. That's the tactic it seems to be taking with the new XE sports sedan, as it is with the Range Rover Sport SVR, and now it's followin

Body-on-frame vehicles are becoming increasingly rare in the modern automotive landscape. The weight savings supplied by a monocoque chassis design have meant that framed cars basically only exist today in the world of pickup trucks and large SUVs.
