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!

A Blast From The Past!

Here is quite an interesting find that we at Land Rover Dallas in Dallas, Texas are pleased to bring to you.  The first ever Range Rover ever produced will be going up for auction next month at the Salon Privé Sale in London!range

Bearing chassis #001, this old timer will be on display for the masses and then be handed over to one lucky bidder. Hosted by Silverstone Auctions, the Range Rover is expected to bring in between a whopping $168,000-$235,000.  Even the opulent Range Rovers we sell here at Land Rover Dallas cost a little less than that, but they might not turn as many heads as this pristine Olive Green original.

As far as the back story goes, the Range Rover was built between November 24 and December 17 in 1969 and registered January 2, 1970, six months before the model officially went on sale. Its very first owner was Michael Furlong, the man responsible for the Range Rover’s early promotional films, and by 1975 his gem had already been resprayed in Bahama Gold, but after color and registration changes throughout the years, the SUV was effectively lost until the early 1990s.

At that point, the car underwent a six-month restoration, during which time it was restored to its original green shade and featured the original aluminum hood and even its original license plate number.  Early Range Rovers like chassis #001 featured a Buick-derived 3.5-liter V-8 that dished out a mere 135 horsepower, but with its hefty V-8 and exceptional four-wheel-drive capability, it had all it needed to tackle the off-road terrain.range 2

Nick Whale, Managing Director at Silverstone Auctions sums up the Range Rover’s inclusion by saying, “It’s wonderful to be able to offer this iconic British model for auction at the U.K.’s finest concours event…and we expect a significant amount of interest when it goes under the hammer.”

Land Rover Powers Up New Ingenium Engine

Land Rover Dallas is pleased to present the pinnacle of advanced engine technology, with low-friction, high-performance petrol and diesel motors that have been designed to meet growing customer demand for lower fuel consumption and cost of ownership, without comprising performance and the driver experience.ing

Ingenium is part of the new era of premium diesel and petrol engines that are designed, engineered and manufactured by Jaguar Land Rover.   These remarkable engines deliver class-leading levels of torque, horsepower and refinement while reducing emissions and fuel consumption.

The Land Rover powertrain engineers at the Whitley and Gaydon development facilities have based Ingenium’s foundation on extremely strong and compact aluminium blocks for both the diesel and petrol versions.  These lightweight blocks share the same bore, stroke, cylinder spacing and 500cc cylinder capacity, which helps give Ingenium the configurability and flexibility around which smaller or larger engines can quickly and efficiently be developed to meet future regulatory and competitive requirements.

All diesel and petrol Ingenium variants will be equipped with state-of-the-art turbochargers that improve performance, particularly at low speeds, and that help reduce consumption and C02 emissions.  The modular design enables both petrol and diesel engines to share many common internal components and calibration strategies, which reduces complexity, raises quality and simplifies manufacturing.

“Customers around the world are increasingly demanding cleaner-running, more efficient vehicles that maintain or even enhance the performance attributes expected of a rugged all-terrain vehicle or a high performance car. Our Ingenium engines deliver this to a new level.” said Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart, Jaguar Land Rover Group Engineering Director.ing 2

Land Rover already leads the industry in the production of lightweight, aluminum-bodied vehicles, and the introduction of Ingenium unites the company’s light-weight chassis expertise with powertrains that are specifically designed and calibrated to complement reduced weight vehicles.

To learn more about Ingenium, feel free to give us a call at Land Rover Dallas and one of our team members will happily give you the full scoop.  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon!
