The new Range Rover will cost a wallet-busting £71,000 and the car firm says they’ve already got six months of orders!
To be fair, it’s an impressive piece of car which has been redesigned from the ground up.
Among the line-up of petrol and diesel engines is a diesel hybrid and the promise of the world’s first fully capable hybrid SUV later next year.
Meanwhile, buyers can expect a Range Rover that’s not only lighter and stronger but also more refined.
Land Rover say they are going to push this car upmarket and there’s no doubt this is going to be the best SUV money can buy.
It’s also the world’s first SUV with a lightweight all-aluminium monocoque body structure which makes it a little bit easier on the fuel economy but it also has greatly increased handling.
Though, as I’ve said previously on this blog about ‘posh’ 4x4s, I would not expect this motor to be getting its tyres muddy at any point.
This is the fourth generation of the iconic model and it really is taking on the mantle of previous generations.
Land Rover have opened their order books in 170 countries and it will be built at their Solihull plant where they’ve just spent £370million on the world’s largest aluminium body shop.
Pricing in the UK starts from £71,295 for the Range Rover Vogue 3.0L TDV6 rising to £98,395 for the Range Rover Autobiography 5.0L Supercharged.
It’s interesting to note that sales of the outgoing model are still strong and in the last 12 months Land Rover has sold more vehicles across its range than in any other rolling 12 month period, retailing nearly 280,000 units worldwide.
