Land Rover has always been synonymous with luxury, reliability and durability. The company has been around since 1948 and today, Land Rover is owned by Tata Motors. In addition to its iconic vehicles, Land Rover also offers a range of accessories and services.
Land Rover was founded in 1948 by Sir William Lyons. He wanted to create a vehicle that would last longer than other cars at the time. Today, Land Rover is known for its off-road capabilities, luxurious interiors and high-end features.
Land Rover is now owned by Tata Motors. The company aims to continue providing customers with quality vehicles and customer service. The company’s main headquarters is located in Coventry, United Kingdom. It also has offices all over the world.
The first generation of the Range Rover (also called Range Rover Classic) debuted in 1971. This model had a V8 engine and could go from 0 to 100 km/h in 11 seconds. From 1972 onwards, four generations of this car were produced. Customers loved these models so much, they kept buying them even after more advanced models came out. In 2010, Land Rover announced it would be discontinuing the classic version of the Range Rover. They decided to offer an SUV instead.
In 1984, Land Rover introduced the fourth generation Rover 45 Series II. This model featured a new front end design and a 2.5 L turbo diesel inline five cylinder engine. Another improvement was the introduction of air conditioning. The fifth generation Rover 45 Series III was released in 1996. It marked a shift towards smaller engines — 2.4L and 3.0L turbodiesels. These were paired with six speed automatic transmissions. The sixth generation Range Rover premiered in 2001. This model used aluminum wheels on all variants except the premium models.
In 2002, Land Rover created the seventh generation Range Rover. The model included improvements like a redesigned grille as well as larger headlights. There are three different trims available — Sport, Dynamic and HSE. The eighth generation Range Rover entered production in 2009. The model includes several upgrades such as standard heated seats and steering wheel. All Trim Levels have leather upholstery. There are many changes but one thing remains constant: you can count on your Range Rover to get you where you need to go no matter how rough the terrain may be.
Nowadays, there are two types of Land Rovers manufactured. The traditional Range Rover is still being made. However, the Discovery 4X4 comes in both a regular and XTerra variant. The Discovery 4X4 is not bad — it comes with plenty of space and features a powerful engine.
Land Rover has also come out with some special editions of their models. One example of this is the 2019 Jaguar Land Rover Heritage Collection. This collection includes two models — the Range Rover Velar and the Range Rover Evoque. Both are based on the third generation Range Rover that was built between 2007 and 2013. The exterior paint colors include black, silver and gold metallic. Inside there are woodgrain patterns and carbon fiber accents. The next edition is the 2020 Jaguar Land Rover Special Edition Collection. This includes two models — the Land Rover Discovery Vision Coupe and the Range Rover Velociraptor. The prices for these vehicles start around $80,000.
Land Rover offers a variety of options when ordering its vehicles. You can customize almost everything about your vehicle. There are options regarding the interior, exterior, seating position and suspension system. The interior options are numerous. You can choose from a wide range of materials including leather or other exotic veneers. There are many options for the exterior. You can opt for body colours or metal finishes. On every trim level, you’ll find a choice of wheels. The most important option though is the suspension system which helps improve handling and ride comfort. This section of our guide will help you understand what each of those systems entail.
