Graduation Day

Land Rover Dallas is giving praise to our parent company, Jaguar Land Rover, as they have welcomed 283 new graduates within a week of unveiling its breakthrough premium sports sedan, the Jaguar XE and revealing its all-new Land Rover Discovery Sport model.

Joining the UK’s largest premium automotive manufacturer from the country’s leading academic institutions, the latest recruits are starting their career with Jaguar Land Rover in the next year.   The company has aspiring plans for both of its brands that will deliver significant product developments in the coming years.

Having personally welcomed the new graduates to the company, Dr Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer, said:  “We are investing significantly in the future of Jaguar Land Rover by creating very special vehicles for our customers and, just as importantly, by employing and developing the people that will help ensure our continued success.  Great people and great products are the essence of this great British company.”

The graduates began their two-year program with a formal induction week, during which they met Dr. Speth and other members of the Jaguar Land Rover board, familiarized themselves with the latest vehicle line-up and had a glimpse at some of the products of the future.

The majority of the new graduate roles will be in manufacturing, programming and engineering.  Roles are also being filled in commercial areas such as finance, HR, IT, marketing, sales, property, logistics and PR.   The Jaguar Land Rover graduate program is designed to provide the perfect blend of personal and professional development, along with opportunities to network with other graduates and build relationships across the business.  Over the past four years, Jaguar Land Rover has recruited more than 1,200 youngsters into its graduate program and has been named the highest-ranking automotive manufacturer in the prestigious Times Top 100 List of Graduate Employers.

Land Rover Dallas would like to take a moment to fill you in on what is sure to be a real “blast”, with Land Rover’s Galactic Discovery Competition!

In a ground-breaking online search for a group of aspiring astronauts to participate in the ultimate adventure, the winners of the Virgin Galactic space flight prize will be among the first pioneering travelers to view the earth from space and experience out-of-seat zero gravity!

The extraordinary opportunity is being offered by Land Rover and Virgin Galactic to mark the launch of the New Discovery Sport and to seek out the world’s most adventurous and gifted spirits. This highly prestigious competition was announced via a film featuring a group of the world’s greatest-living adventurers, all of whom will be chaperoning  the mission, including Sir Richard Branson, Bear Grylls and Sir Ranulph Fiennes.  Over the next four months, Land Rover will utilize social media, PR and digital marketing across 40 countries to launch the New Discovery Sport and seek out the world’s most promising new astronauts.

In a 30 second video clip or still image, competitors will demonstrate what the spirit of adventure means to them. Whether it’s climbing a mountain, kayaking down a river, skydiving, or taking a simple midnight drive, adventure means something different for everyone and the judges are looking forward to seeing all different kinds, both big and small.

Step Inside – Discovery Sport

Land Rover Dallas is happy to bring you a small taste of what the inside of the all new Discovery Sport, which will soon be gracing us with its presence, is going to look like.

The Discovery Sport is Land Rover’s new midsize crossover that will effectively replace the LR2, and will most notably be offered with seven-passenger seating.   The middle row will be able to both slide and fold, while the optional third row will be able to fold down to maximize trunk space. Other amenities include ribbed leather seating, a high-end audio system and as a graciously large panoramic moonroof.

The video below shows off the partnership between Land Rover and commercial spaceflight company Virgin Galactic.  Promotional campaigns so far for the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport have focused on themes of exploration, technological innovation, and the evolution of transportation, and it’s looking like Virgin Galactic could sponsor some kind of special-edition Discovery Sport in the near future.

Gerry McGovern, Design Director and Chief Creative Officer said, “Versatility is a fundamental element of the Discovery family and with optional 5+2 seating, generous load space and configurable seating the new Discovery Sport truly deserves to wear the Discovery badge. What this footage also showcases is the high cabin quality and craftsmanship of the highly desirable Discovery Sport.”

With smooth, clean lines and an overall style that is more in line with the rest of the Land Rover Dallas’ newer offerings, we are quite positive that this baby is going be a huge hit amongst the luxury SUV enthusiasts out there.

Checkmate – The 2015 Evoque Autobiography Limited Editions

The Range Rover Evoque has been a major hit here at Land Rover Dallas in Dallas, Texas, and it’s pretty easy to see why.  Exceptional styling both inside and out, combined with unsurpassed performance and unparalleled off-road maneuvering have made this opulent and extraordinary vehicle the top contender in the realm of compact luxury SUVs.evoquee

We are now pleased to announce that there will be two more soldiers added to the lineup, with the 2015 Evoque Autobiography Limited Editions!  Land Rover has decided to roll out their line-topping Autobiography trim to the Evoque, and will be available in both Autobiography and Autobiography Dynamic models.

Experience an upgrade in power and performance with a tweaked version of the peppy 2.0-liter powertrain.  By incorporating a new turbocharger and a high-efficiency sports exhaust, Land Rover engineers found an additional 45 horsepower and 44 pound-feet of torque, taking the totals to a highly respectable 285 horses and 295 lb-ft.

All Evoque models have four-wheel drive, the Land Rover Terrain Response system that adapts to varying surfaces, and active driveline, which automatically switches to front-wheel drive at speeds over 22 mph, disengaging the driveline to minimize drag but reengaging when the system senses extra traction is needed.

The Evoque Autobiography rides along on stunning 20-inch rims and is engulfed in succulent leather interior.  External details also include Atlas Silver trim, a new grille, black moldings, and “crystal” head and tail lights.  There will also be larger front brakes and a suspension and steering tuned for crisper response and a more athletic feel.  evoque 2

The Autobiography Dynamic gets amenities such as darkened headlamps, 20-inch alloy wheels, and black bodyside moldings. There’s also a striking Phoenix Orange paint color available on the Dynamic that is truly a site to see.  On the inside experience plush leather upholstery, a high-end audio system, and dark brushed aluminum trim on the dashboard.

The Evoque Autobiography and Autobiography Dynamic are both available in Coupe and four-door body styles and are guaranteed to be biggest head-turners in our already impressive lineup of luxury SUVs.

We invite you to stop by Land Rover Dallas to find out more and to place your order for either of these awe-inspiring machines today!
