Land Rover recently unveiled the new 2013 Range Rover at the Royal Ballet School in Richmond, London. The new model features a lightweight all-aluminium body, a complete new redesign, interior refinement and upgrades, enhanced performance and handling on all terrains and a bunch of new technology. Moreover, the new Range Rover has been scheduled to make its debut at the Paris Motor Show as well on September 27th.
“The new Range Rover preserves the essential, unique character of the vehicle – that special blend of luxury, performance and unmatched all-terrain capability,” said John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director. “However, its clean sheet design and revolutionary lightweight construction have enabled us to transform the experience for luxury vehicle customers, with a step change in comfort, refinement and handling.”
The 2013 Range Rover has been engineered from the ground up with the adoption of the latest body and chassis technologies, the vehicle’s all-terrain performance has moved on to another level. Amongst new innovations is the next-generation version of Land Rover’s Terrain Response system, which analyses the current driving conditions and automatically select the most suitable vehicle settings.
The all new Range Rover is a little lengthier than the outgoing model; the wheelbase of the vehicle is stretched by 40mm which makes it more spacious than before, the headlamps and grille of the car gets its inspiration from the Evoque. The side metal scoop no longer exists on the new fourth-generation, the rocker now looks more muscular and also the slope of the D-pillar has been reduced.
On the inside, the Range Rover gets an all-new design. It gets a newly-design steering wheel, while the centre console gets the brown and beige trim. The lower end gets the wood finish, and also the conventional gear stick is replaced with the rising gear knob as a new standard as seen on the Jaguars and the Range Rover Evoque.
For the engine options, customers can opt for a 510PS supercharged V8 petrol engine or the 258PS and 339PS TDV6 and SDV8 diesel engines respectively. Claimed acceleration figures for the petrol engine hint at a 0-100 lap time of 5.1 seconds, which is 0.8s less than the outgoing version. The company also claims that fuel efficiency across the range has been vastly improved upon from the 2012 variants.
Land Rover also confirmed that there will be a diesel hybrid model later in 2013. Meanwhile, the 2013 Range Rover has been priced at Rs 63.18 lakh minus duties in UK.
