Cena Chauffeurs Invictus Games Competitors

WWE Superstar John Cena surprised two U.S. Invictus Games competitors and their family members with an unforgettable VIP chauffeur experience inside the cabin of a rip-roaring Range Rover Sport SVR.

Cena, an Invictus Games ambassador for Jaguar Land Rover, picked up unsuspecting U.S. team members Tino Ulli and his girlfriend Shari Trujillo and Joshua Jablon and his girlfriend Lindsey Green, and chauffeured them to ESPN Wide World of Sports, the venue for the Games that were hosted in Orlando in May.

Cena said, “I’m honored to be part of the Invictus Games in Orlando this year and have the opportunity to meet with some of the US team. It was a lot of fun taking on the role of surprise chauffeur and I was pleased to have the opportunity to get to know the competitors and their family members. We are all indebted to our servicemen and women and I fully support the Games and the opportunity it gives us all to recognize the heroes of our nation. I wish all the competitors the very best of luck for the final stages of the Games.”

Joshua Jablon, a retired Marine Lance corporal from Mankato, Minnesota who is affected by invisible injury PTSD, has earned a silver medal in discus throw and gold in shot-put during the Games.  Tino Ulli is a retired Air Force Staff Sergeant competing in rowing, powerlifting and shot-put, and is also affected by PTSD.

Cena was also featured in the Invictus Games Closing Ceremony, presenting the ‘”Land Rover Above and Beyond Award” to an individual who has gone above and beyond not only what is expected as a competitor, but also as a teammate at the Invictus Games. It is judged on sportsmanship, commitment to the Games and demonstration of an inspiring example of “Invictus Spirit”.

After the conclusion of second edition of the Games, Land Rover announced that it will continue as Presenting Partner of the 2017 Invictus Games to be held in Toronto, Canada.

“Tile” by Land Rover

The all new 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the now the SUV that never forgets, thanks to the world-first integration of Tile’s advanced tracking app.

Jaguar Land Rover is proud to be the first to incorporate this ground-breaking technology that will help you find your lost items.   The app uses Tile tags, which are tiny Bluetooth trackers that can be attached to important items such as your keys and wallet, and is used to track their whereabouts using smartphone technology.   Once the app is initiated using the central touchscreen, customers are alerted if specified items are not inside the vehicle and are even able to get on-screen directions to their last known location.

Peter Virk, Jaguar Land Rover’s Director of Connected Technologies & Apps, said:  “Losing your wallet or leaving your child’s sports kit behind isn’t just an inconvenience. The realization you’ve mislaid something important can be a cause of distraction. Our unique partnership with Tile means customers can check the status of tagged items using Discovery Sport’s touchscreen, so forgotten items will be a thing of the past.”

Land Rover integrates Tile with its innovative in-car entertainment system. The partnership allows customers to establish a list of “Essentials” using the vehicle touchscreen, which are always checked when the app is initiated. If items are lost inside the vehicle, customers are able to sound a 90-decibel alarm on the Tile tag, to help locate them.

The Tile smartphone app is compatible with both Android and Apple platforms and the number of items that can be tracked is limitless.    To find out more about Tile, call or visit Land Rover Dallas today!

Tow Test – The Discovery Sport

To highlight the new Discovery Sport’s towing capabilities, Land Rover had the specialists at Aquarius Railroad Technologies fit the three-row sport-ute with a set of rail wheels and hooked it up to a train of three luxury carriages totaling 119 tons.

This remarkable feat took place at Museumsbahn Stein am Rhein in Switzerland, crossing the River Rhine on the gorgeous Hemishofen bridge – a historic steel span measuring 935 feet long and soaring 85 feet above the valley floor.

The 10 kilometer journey put the compact Discovery Sport’s pulling power to the ultimate test. Though the Discovery Sport has a certified maximum towing weight of 2,500kg, it was able to pull 60 times its own weight, powered by Jaguar Land Rover’s 180PS Ingenium diesel engine providing 430Nm of torque.  In addition, the Discovery Sport benefitted from Land Rover’s portfolio of towing and traction technologies such as Terrain Response, Tow Assist, Tow Hitch Assist and All Terrain Progress Control – a semi-autonomous off-road driving system that automatically manages engine output and braking, to complete the stunt.

The vehicle’s drivetrain remained unchanged; the only modification being the fitment of rail wheels by specialists Aquarius Railroad Technologies, to act as ‘stabilizers’. Unlike the 1989 Discovery tow, Discovery Sport completed the impressive pull without the aid of low-range gears, instead using its state-of-the-art 9-speed automatic gearbox and Terrain Response technology to generate the necessary traction. Land Rover’s All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) system was also engaged at the press of a button during the tow, to maximize traction at a set speed. Acting much like a low-speed cruise control, ATPC allows the driver to focus on the road, or in this case the railway, ahead.

Towing is in Land Rover’s DNA, and the Discovery Sport is no exception.  If you are keen to test out the strength and capability of the all new Discovery Sport, then we invite you to stop by Land Rover Dallas to take this beauty for a test climb.

Evoque Ember Edition

An exclusive Limited Edition Range Rover Evoque has been revealed as part of updates made to the world’s most luxurious compact SUV. Known as the “Ember” edition, this stunning red and black luxury compact SUV has a host of design enhancements to showcase Evoque’s distinctive silhouette.

The Ember builds on the attributes of the Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic with striking exterior details including a Firenze Red roof to contrast the Santorini Black body color. The Ember theme continues inside with Ebony black seats with a contrasting Pimento red stitch among the many stand-out design features.

Phil Simmons, Land Rover’s Studio Director for Exterior Design Realization said: “We wanted to give the Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition a sporty feel; contrasting the intensity of the Firenze Red with Santorini Black really shows off the Evoque’s stand-out proportions.”

Having won over 182 international awards since its launch in 2011, the Evoque is widely regarded as the world’s most desirable luxury compact SUV.

The latest Range Rover Evoque now offers next-generation InControl Touch Pro infotainment that includes a 10.2-inch tablet-style touchscreen complete with streetview map options and a customizable home screen.  The touchscreen behaves like a smartphone or tablet with swipe, pan and pinch to zoom controls and provides a clearer 21:9 super-wide format with 1280×542 pixel resolution – an 80 per cent increase over the Evoque’s standard eight-inch touchscreen

Evoque customers will also be able to choose from a wider range of exterior body colors than before.  The addition of Aruba, Farallon Black, Carpathian Grey and Silicon Silver premium metallic paint finishes takes the total number of color options to 18.

The Range Rover Evoque Ember will be available to order for a three-month period this summer in select markets.
