The slightly redesigned 2007 Land Rover Discovery 3 has finally gone on sale and, although its sticker price has been heightened due to higher costs of production, the compact British off-roader still offers the same value for money that Land Rover is famous for.
As the outgoing model, the face-lifted Disco (in the United States it will be marketed as Land Rover LR3, for that matter) combines a Spartan yet ergonomic interior with superb off-road abilities, but adds to the mixt a new fuel-efficient diesel engine that significantly improves the small trucks driving range.
It has been officially confirmed that the 2007 Range Rover Sport TDV8 executive SUV will arrive to European dealerships as soon as January, 2007. Equipped with an eight-cylinder turbo-diesel engine producing 640 Nm (470 lb-ft) of torque, the luxury SUV takes just over 8.5 seconds to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour while delivering pretty much impressive 25.5 mpg in the combined cycle. Its top speed is limited at 130 mph, which roughly converts to 209 kilometers per hour.
The new tuning program for the 2006 Range Rover Sport executive-class SUV by Arden makes the vehicle stronger in the literal sense. The British tuning specialist increases the new crossover’s maximum power by reworking the original 4.2-liter V8 Jaguar AJ-V8 supercharged engine with its displacement increased by almost 15 percent.
The latest Range Rover SUV, which debuted back in May during the motor show in Madrid, Spain, will be offered in four trims and with a choice of two engines running on a diesel fuel or a gasoline. According to the officially disseminated list of recommended prices, the British car manufacturer currently plans to offer the SUV only with a 6-speed automatic transmission (probably, to increase the vehicle’s fuel efficiency rating) and with a four-wheel drive system.
The Gernam tuner has just presented its new personalization program for one of the 2007 Range Rover Sport entry-luxury crossover SUV. Although Hamann‘s tuning program for the current Range Rover Sport sufficiently undermines the vehicle’s off-road capabilities, but makes it the real highway star. At least, visually.
The British brand plans to unveil the redesigned Land Rover Freelander mid-size crossover SUV (in the U.S., it will sell as LR2) at the upcoming 2006 British Motor Show that will be held in July in London.
Compared to the outgoing model, the new car seems to look a lot classier with more streamlined design and less unpainted plastic. It is also nice to know that, as elegant and cool as it is, the vehicle retains its impressive off-road capabilities, although its prowess on a paved road (especially if you place it side by side with its main rival: the BMW X3) still needs to be proved.
