Bob Moore Previews the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover
All Range Rovers are fitted with an air suspension and a full-time four-wheel-drive system with a new generation of Terrain Response Control that uses sensors to predict the surface ahead, and to change traction, stability, and active-differential settings to handle the upcoming situation, choosing between five settings (General; Grass/Gravel/Snow; Mud/Ruts; Sand; and Rock Crawl). The promise: a luxurious ride, with flat cornering and intuitive steering feel, according to Land Rover.
All Range Rovers will come with dual LCD screens, a wide 12.3-inch display that replaces traditional gauges, and an 8-inch touchscreen that runs infotainment systems on the center stack through a combination of soft and hard keys for functions from navigation to climate, phone, and audio. Leather upholstery will also be standard, while major options will include a panoramic sunroof; a Meridian sound system with 1,700 watts of power; surround-view cameras; cooler boxes; and a choice from among 37 exterior colors, 17 interior colors and 3 veneers. Mr. Freeman mentioned that the model will be in his dealership beginning in December but for those interested in purchasing pre-ordering their vehicle will be imperative.
