The all-new 2013 Range Rover is the most capable and most luxurious Land Rover yet. Lighter, stronger and with new
levels of refinement, the Range Rover reinforces its position as the world's finest luxury SUV.
The fourth generation of the unique Range Rover line, the all-new model has been developed from the ground up,
capturing the innovative spirit and iconic design of the original model which changed the world of motoring when it was
launched over 40 years ago.
The world's first SUV with a revolutionary lightweight all-aluminium monocoque body structure is 39 per cent lighter
than the steel body in the outgoing model enabling total vehicle weight savings of up to 420 kg.
The lightweight aluminium platform has delivered significant enhancements in performance and agility, along with a
transformation in fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
In addition to the strong and rigid lightweight body, an all-new aluminium front and rear chassis architecture has
been developed with completely re-engineered four-corner air suspension. While the luxurious ride has been retained, the
vehicle's handling and agility have been significantly improved. The new suspension architecture is intended to deliver
flatter, more confident cornering, with natural and intuitive steering feel.
John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director, said: "The new Range Rover preserves the essential, unique
character of the vehicle - that special blend of luxury, performance and unmatched all-terrain capability. 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 all-new Range Rover has a clean and elegant shape which is derived from a fresh new interpretation of Range Rover
design cues. While instantly recognisable as a Range Rover, the new vehicle takes a significant step forward with a bold
evolution of the model's iconic design language.
"Designing the next generation Range Rover, following over forty years of success, came with a huge responsibility
to protect the DNA of such an icon," said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer.
"Our design team worked incredibly hard to capture the elegant proportions and pure surfaces which have been a
feature of the best Range Rover designs."
With Land Rover strength at its heart, the new model has been engineered from the ground up to be the most capable,
most refined Range Rover ever.
Amongst the industry-leading innovations is a ground-breaking next-generation version of Land Rover's Terrain
Response® system, which analyses the current driving conditions and automatically selects the most
suitable vehicle settings for the terrain.
To ensure exceptional durability and reliability, the new model has been subjected to Land Rover's punishing on- and
off-road test and development regime, with a fleet of development vehicles covering millions of miles over 18 months of
arduous tests in more than 20 countries with extremes of climate and road surfaces.
Within the cabin, the all-new Range Rover provides occupants with a sensation of serene isolation, meeting the highest
luxury car standards for refinement.
Measures like the rigorously optimised body structure and acoustic lamination of the windscreen and side door glass
have significantly reduced noise levels, while the new suspension architecture has enabled engineers to achieve even more
luxurious ride comfort and refinement.
The sumptuous interior incorporates distinctive Range Rover design cues, but executed with a very contemporary
treatment, and clean, elegant surfaces which are flawlessly presented using the finest leathers and veneers. With over
118 mm more legroom, the rear occupants benefit from vastly increased space and comfort, with the option of a new
two-seat Executive Class seating package for the ultimate in rear-seat luxury.
To deliver the model's characteristic effortless performance, customers have the choice of refined V8 petrol engines
and TDV6 and SDV8 diesel engines combining responsive performance with outstanding CO2 emissions.
The all-new Range Rover has been engineered with the latest developments in vehicle technologies, from interior luxury
features such as exclusive Meridian surround sound music systems and power upper and lower tailgates, to advanced chassis
and driver assistance technologies.
Designed and engineered at Land Rover's development centres in the UK, the new Range Rover will be manufactured in a
new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Solihull, England - employing the latest low-energy aluminium body
Appearing later this month at the Paris Motor Show in France, customer deliveries are scheduled to commence from early
2013. The all-new Range Rover will be a truly global car, available in over 160 markets worldwide.
