2013 Range Rover
The new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover has been engineered from the ground up to be the most capable, most refined Range Rover ever. Lighter, stronger, and with new levels of refinement, the next Range Rover reinforces its position among the finest luxury vehicles.

The all-aluminum unibody structure is 39 percent lighter than the steel body in the outgoing model. This enables a total vehicle weight savings of up to 700lbs, depending on market and specifications. The US specification vehicle with the naturally-aspirated   5-liter V8 will be approximately 700lbs lighter than the outgoing equivalent. This new aluminum platform delivers significant enhancements in performance and agility, along with an improvement in fuel economy and reduction in CO2 emissions.

2013 Range Rover Evoque
The Range Rover Evoque was launched to critical acclaim in the 2012 model year. Earning over 120 international awards in its first year, the Range Rover Evoque has been a major success for Land Rover.

The smallest Range Rover model ever, the Range Rover Evoque stays true to the core brand values by providing premium levels of craftsmanship, luxury, performance and multi-terrain capability. Available in five-door and coupe versions, the Range Rover Evoque provides generous interior legroom and headroom, a very practical trunk, plus highly capable off-road geometry and ground clearance.

2013 Land Rover LR4
The Land Rover LR4 is a luxurious all-purpose, all-terrain SUV, available with three-row seating for seven adults. This exclusively V8-powered, high-capability vehicle continues into 2013 with technology updates, along new interior and exterior options, including a striking new Black Design Package.

Distinguishing the Land Rover LR4 from competitive luxury SUVs is a blend of on-road comfort and off-road capability, bolstered by a permanent four-wheel drive system with a lockable center differential and a two-speed transfer case with a low-range and an array of traction-aiding technologies. The LR4 uses integrated body-frame construction, featuring a steel unibody mounted on a rigid boxed full frame.

The LR4 is powered by a 5-liter V8 engine that develops 375hp and 375 lb.-ft. torque. Engineered for a balance of performance and efficiency, the all-aluminum alloy V8 delivers responsive power throughout the rev range, making it ideal for on-road and off-road performance and towing. On road, the LR4 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 7.5 seconds (0-100km/h in 7.9 seconds.) The engine meets the stringent ULEV (ultra low emissions vehicle) regulations.

2013 Land Rover LR2
Land Rover has given the 2013 LR2 a complete revision, to deliver even higher levels of comfort, convenience and driving enjoyment. New colors, new exterior design features, upgraded interior equipment levels, and a new more powerful and more efficient engine.

A new lightweight turbocharged, direct injected 2-liter four-cylinder engine now powers the 2013 Land Rover LR2. This engine delivers 240hp at 5500 rpm and 250 ft-lbs of torque at 3200 rpm, providing a broader power band strong low-speed response. This represents an increase of 10hp and 16 lb-ft respectively over the outgoing 3.2- liter naturally aspirated inline six. This new engine first appeared in the 2012 Range Rover Evoque and features advanced technologies such as high pressure direct fuel injection and variable valve timing.
