SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The worlds of luxury and off-road prowess come together very rarely in a meaningful way for most automakers, however, that cannot be said of Land Rover and the 2013 Land Rover LR2 near San Antonio, TX. The Land Rover name has always stood for capability and comfort. A new base engine is chief among the improvements that pace the development of the 2013 Land Rover LR2. The new Land Rover LR2 also features a slightly refreshed interior that further demonstrates the Land Rover commitment to automotive quality both as a daily-driving family mover and as a serious off-road vehicle that knows almost no equal.

For several years, the Land Rover LR2 has been powered by an inline V-6 engine. This may have been appropriate at one time when engine technology of four-cylinder engines weren't meant for much more than subcompact vehicles. But with modern engineering, as well as the addition of turbochargers, four-cylinder engines are now capable of being featured in SUVs with a lack of noticeable drop in performance. Through a partnership with Ford Motor Company, the engine powering the 2013 Land Rover LR2 is a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder that can make 240-horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque.

Drivers will have complete control over the 2013 LR2's terrain management system via a push-button in the cabin. This allows owners to select the suspension and feel they are most comfortable with when tackling slippery roads or nonexistent trails off the beaten path. The 2013 Land Rover LR2 also comes with antilock brakes, roll stability control and a full array of airbags that will all but envelop drivers and passengers. Another feature often overlooked in the 2013 LR2 is the excellent visibility for every person in the vehicle. The SUV features lots of glass and slim support pillars for a nearly unobstructed view in any direction.
