At the New York International Auto Show, Land Rover will unveil the new 2010 Range Rover. A new powerful engine, revolutionary interior technologies and enhanced driving dynamics reinforce its position as one of the world's most complete luxury 4x4s.
Land Rover's flagship has been comprehensively updated to deliver more refined and efficient performance, together with the ultimate in interior comfort and craftsmanship.
"The 2010 Range Rover is a considerable step forward for what is already regarded as one of the world's most complete luxury vehicles. New engines provide formidable power, efficiency and customary Range Rover refinement, with new technologies delivering world firsts. Like its legendary predecessors, the 2010 Range Rover is setting the pace once more," says Phil Popham, Land Rover managing director.
Pride of place on the 2010 Range Rover goes to the brand new 510PS 5.0-litre supercharged LR-V8 petrol engine. The engine was developed in-house by the Jaguar Land Rover powertrain team, with the requirements of the Range Rover in mind from day one. The LR-V8 engine has been developed to deliver more power and refinement, but not at the expense of fuel consumption and emissions.
The LR-V8 improves fuel consumption by 7.3 per cent to 19mpg on the EU cycle and CO2 emissions by 7.4 per cent to 348g/km, despite substantial increases in both power to 510PS (+29 per cent) and torque to 625Nm (+12 per cent), compared with its 4.2-litre Supercharged predecessor.
The popular diesel derivative continues to be powered by the acclaimed 272PS 3.6-litre TDV8 and also benefits from upgrades to the design and under-the-skin modifications.
The 2010 Range Rover will go on sale from July 2009.Published 8 April 2009
