2012 Range Rover Brings More Style

Land Rover is really taking to heart its Chelsea tractor-maker image these day and is updating all of its products with added cosmetic elements, big wheels, and custom packages. We know the Range Rover name is going to spawn a new generation soon, but that doesn’t mean the current version can’t shine a little longer.

That’s why the 2012 Range Rover will bring new option packs for the Vogue and Autobiography models, 20-inch V Spoke Alloy Wheels and other glossy touches that will help your local football start shine in the glossy paparazzi magazines.

“The Range Rover always has been and remains the definitive, luxury SUV and one whose off-road performance matches its comfort levels and performance. New equipment levels, revised styling and generously specified option packs make it the one to beat in 2012,” says John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.

The biggest cosmetic change is that the lights, tail lamp back plates are now finished in gloss black, while the front grille surround is colored Narvik Black. New 20-inch V Spoke Alloy Wheels finish off the exterior look of the luxury SUV together with body-colored door handles. and side vents.

Both Vogue Silver Pack and Vogue Black Pack come with the Logic 7, 1200W Harman Kardon High Dynamics Audio System, heated and cooled seats for each passenger, and an 8-inch Dual View infotainment screen – allowing the driver to view the navigation display whilst the passenger can relax watching a video.

The engine range remains unchanged, and includes the powerful 4.4 LR-TDV8 diesel with 313 horsepower, which in combination with the ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission returns CO2 emissions of just 253g/km.

Petrol versions include both the naturally aspirated and supercharged versions of the 5.0-liter V8 mill, producing 375 or 510 horsepower respectively.
