The JustDrive Connectivity Suite

Land Rover Dallas along with Jaguar Land Rover would like to introduce JustDrive, the new addition to the InControl system that is sure to grab the attention of all you tech lovers out there.

Developed by Silicon Valley-based CloudCar, Jaguar Land Rover has optimized JustDrive for its InControl platform for Apple iOS8, and will expand on the smartphone-focused infotainment system by adding a singular voice controller for a wide array of the system’s currently available apps.

This innovative and exciting new feature integrates popular apps and services such as Spotify, Twitter and Yelp, to give Land Rover drivers a tremendous level of integration with navigation, media, social interaction, voice search and information services while minimizing driver distraction.

JustDrive uses an advanced plain speech recognition package so customers can communicate naturally with their car, rather than using simple syntax commands.  The app requires drivers to be connected to Bluetooth and can relay voice commands, as well as facilitate calls to contacts. It will also be able to give the driver information such as weather reports, traffic information and the latest news. You can even ask JustDrive where the nearest gas station is or play a particular song just by asking for it.

Having debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week, JustDrive will join 17 other apps including Stitcher, iheartRadio and Parkopedia currently in Land Rover’s InControl Apps in-car infotainment system. The app is free to download and will also available on Android in early 2015.

JustDrive promises to significantly enhance your driving experience through unprecedented levels of connectivity while at the same time keeping you distraction-free while out there on the road.   To learn more, call or visit Land Rover Dallas and we will gladly get all of your questions and concerns answered in a timely manner.

25 Years of Discovery

Land Rover Dallas is proud to pay homage to one of our favorite models with the release of the exciting and unique film that features home video clips of Land Rover Discovery owner adventures from all across the globe.

The heart-warming film, created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Land Rover Discovery, features footage of owners taking part in a variety of challenges, all captured over the last 25 years.

Owners from over 36 countries accepted the invitation from Land Rover to submit home footage of their favorite Discovery moments. Over 1,000 clips totaling an estimated 100+ hours of footage and demonstrating the Discovery’s capability and versatility were submitted via social media.   The final film includes 70 different Land Rover owners from 24 countries around the world.

Dominic Chambers, Land Rover Marketing Communications Director said: “To celebrate 25 years of the Land Rover Discovery, we wanted to produce a film about the amazing journeys it has undertaken all over the world. When we started to look into it, we realized that the people who make Discovery what it is – our owners – had already made it. The story of Discovery was simply hidden in the thousands of clips shot about owner adventures all over the world. Discovery owners hold their vehicles dear to their heart and what better way to capture that passion and adventurous spirit than showcasing their own discoveries from the last 25 years.”

Take a look at the uplifting video below, and after you are done watching why not come see us here at Land Rover Dallas to see what incredible memories you can make while behind the wheel of one of our award-winning luxury SUVs.

Gearing Up – The 2015 Discovery Sport

All of us here at Land Rover Dallas in the heart of Dallas, Texas are thrilled beyond belief as we are getting ready to take first shipment of the long awaited and highly anticipated 2015 Discovery Sport!

The all new Discovery made its debut at the Paris Motor Show last month and it was an introduction befitting that of a king, as trumpets wailed and hundreds of people watched as 2 Sports climbed wooden hills constructed on a barge and then drove through water nearly two-feet deep in front of a set of giant rubber boots.

The Discovery Sport boasts a new look, a copious amount of new technologies, and other changes to enhance performance.   The 7-seater has quite a bit in common with the Land Rover LR2 that it will be replacing, as well as the Evoque, including some of its front architecture and transverse engine layout and 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 rated 240 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque.  An electric power-assisted steering system, nine-speed automatic transmission, and a Haldex all-wheel drive system are also standard.

Other features include park and tow assist systems, a twin-bar grille and hexagonal mesh lower grille, a panoramic sunroof, premium leather upholstery, an 8-inch touchscreen display, a 10-speaker audio system or upgraded 17 speaker Meridian sound system, and an optional “Black Pack” trim with 19 or 20-inch wheels, a gloss black grille, and sporty vents and side mirrors.

Land Rover Dallas invites you to visit our dealership and sit down with one of our sales professionals to discuss how you can land yourself behind the wheel of the 2015 Discovery Sport.  We are quite sure that you will be more than impressed with this remarkable and highly versatile luxury SUV.

Evoque Diesel Headed Our Way?

Land Rover Dallas has begun to hear whispers around town that our parent company, Land Rover USA, is debating whether or not to bring the diesel-powered variant of the compact Evoque crossover in the United States.evoque dd

Across the ocean over in the UK, the Evoque is currently offered with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine that is good for 190 horsepower and 309 lb-ft. of torque in its most powerful configuration.  As of now, the diesel cannot be sold in the U.S. because it can’t be easily modified to comply with emissions regulations, which likely explains why Land Rover didn’t enter the diesel segment when it first introduced the award-winning Evoque.

The diesel-powered Evoque will be equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that is part of new Ingenium family of engines.  Technical details are not available yet, but the engine will also be found under the hood of other Jaguar Land Rover models including the all new Discovery Sport and the Jaguar XE.

“Nothing is confirmed yet, but as we continue to investigate options that’s definitely something that’s being considered,” said Kim McCullough, marketing vice president of Jaguar Land Rover in North America.

“There’s a much greater acceptance for diesel in the U.S. market. You’ll see diesels eventually coming in on both brands,” confirmed McCullough in an interview with AutoGuide.

With Land Rover’s competitors such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes offering diesel SUVs in America, it seems as though the door has been opened for Land Rover to incorporate high-end oil-burners into its lineup as well.   If the diesel Evoque proves successful, it could certainly pave the way for more like-powered Land Rover vehicles in the U.S.   For now, we will just have to wait and see what the head honchos decide.

In the meantime, we invite you to visit us here at Land Rover Dallas in the heart of Dallas, Texas to peruse our always impressive lineup of premium luxury vehicles.
