The fourth generation Range Rover has gone on sale from £71,295 for the Vogue 3.0L TDV6 rising to £98,395 for the Range Rover Autobiography 5.0L Supercharged.
Deliveries are expected in early January 2013 for those of you who place their order now after looking through the 18,000 option permutations.
The new Range Rover is the first SUV to use an all-aluminium body which means a weight saving of around 350kg which pays dividends in the fuel and CO2 emissions ratings.
The weight saving helps the 510PS LR-V8 Supercharged model to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 5.1 seconds, a reduction of 0.8 seconds over the outgoing model. At the same time, fuel consumption is cut by 9 per cent.
It also means that the new Range Rover will have the option of two diesel power units a 3.0-litre TDV6 engine and the current 4.4-litre TDV8. This allows the Range Rover for the first time to achieve 37.7 mpg on the official combined fuel cycle.
Plus there will be a diesel Hybrid model in 2013 that will see CO2 emissions of around 169 g/km, which is ground breaking the Range Rover.
