New Range Rover: Full details

All-new Range Rover prices, specs and equipment revealed

Land Rover has revealed full details of the new Range Rover, which not only weighs 420kgs less than its predecessor but is also more luxurious, better on-road, more capable off-road and full of advanced technology.

Despite all of the improvements the new Range Rover will start from £71,295 – almost exactly the same as the outgoing model.

That price is for the new entry-level V6 diesel model, which is actually faster than the V8 in the old Range Rover thanks to the drastic weight loss.

With 254bhp, it launches the Range Rover from 0-60mph in 7.4 seconds – compared to 7.5 seconds for the old V8.

The 4.4-litre diesel V8, which puts out 334bhp, completes the 0-60mph sprint in 6.5 seconds. The supercharged 5.0-litre V8 petrol still sits at the top of the range.

The new, lower kerbweight brings benefits to running costs too, with the V6 capable of 37.7mpg and producing 196g/km of CO2.

Previously the cleanest Range Rover only managed 30.1mpg and 253g/km of CO2. A diesel hybrid will be added in 2013, hoping to achieve 169g/km.

There’s a fresh design for the exterior which helps make this the most aerodynamic Range Rover yet and the interior now feels much more luxurious than ever before too.

There’s also 118mm more legroom for rear seat passengers and the option of an Executive seat pack, which includes two large massage seats. Buyers can even specify a 29-speaker Meridian stereo.

Personalisation is a big theme for the new Range Rover, so there’s now a choice of 17 interior colour themes, three veneer choices, three headlining colours and a choice of seat colours too.

The outside can be specified with a contrasting roof, 37 different paints for the body, a choice of three colours for the side vents and eight alloy wheel designs.

On road driving has been boosted with the addition of an anti-body roll system and uprated suspension and sound-deadening.

Land Rover claims the changes make the Range Rover more refined than a Bentley Flying Spur and about as comfortable as a Mercedes S-Class.

The outgoing Range Rover was already impressive off-road but the new model is improved in every way.

It has better approach and departure angles for steep hills, it can wade through water 90mm deeper than before and there’s a new Terrain Response system too. It now features an Auto setting that allows the car to tweak the car’s responses depending on the terrain.

The new Range Rover is being produced at Land Rover’s Solihull plant in the UK at the moment and customers are able to order it now. First deliveries will be at the beginning of 2013.
