Land Rover BAR Academy Sets the Bar High

Land Rover Dallas would like to extend our congratulations to the Land Rover BAR Academy sailing team for making history this June by winning the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.

It was a close finish, but the Land Rover BAR Academy team finished with 50 points. At one point during the final race the team was in 8th place. They showed determination and grit by fighting their way to 2nd place, clinching the overall victory. The New Zealand team finished second with 48 points.

One of the goals of the Land Rover BAR Academy is to build interest and participation in sailing across both genders. Every individual is important. The Land Rover BAR Academy team included the only female sailor in the entire competition. The team’s tactician, Annabel Vose.

“We could not be prouder of the Land Rover BAR Academy winning the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup,” Sir Ben Ainslie, Land Rover BAR Team Principal and Skipper, said. “All their hard work, commitment and dedication over the past 18 months has really come together on the water here in Bermuda. Today was incredibly tense, it is a strong fleet, but I have been really impressed by the team’s constant on-board communication, how they kept their cool under pressure and really delivered on the boat handling during the tricky conditions.”

“The commitment and dedication shown by the Academy team to win the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup is a testament to their character’s and with out continued commitment to Land Rover BAR we look forward to supporting the next generation of sailors,” Mark Cameron, Land Rover Experiential Marketing Director, said. “We understand that supporting opportunities for talented young male and female sailors is crucial to the longevity of the team and to achieving Land Rover BAR’s ultimate goal of ‘Bringing The Cup Home’ to Britain.”

2 Land Rover Vehicles to Debut Ingenium Engines

Jaguar Land Rover is excited to announce the 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport and 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque will both come equipped with Jaguar Land Rover’s all-new 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engines. These engines will give each vehicle a refined and smooth performance. The Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque are the first Land Rover vehicles to have Jaguar Land Rover’s new petrol Ingenium engines.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is currently Land Rover’s fastest-selling vehicle. Over 200,000 units have been sold since it debuted in 2014. The new Ingenium engine will give the Discovery Sport power, efficiency, and 35.3 miles/gallon.

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque made its debut back in 2011. Since then, over 600,000 units have been produced. The new Ingenium engine will be 15 percent more efficient than the Range Rover Evoque’s previous engine and offer 38.7 miles/gallon.

When selecting a Discovery Sport or Range Rover Evqoue for purchase, owners who choose to opt for the Ingenium petrol engine will also receive the Dynamic exterior pack at no additional charge. This extra pack allows for more personalization with luxury finishes to give the vehicle your own flare.

In addition to the petrol engine, Jaguar Land Rover will also have a diesel engine available. The four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine provides greater levels of torque from low speeds to ensure responsiveness and proper acceleration. The Ingenium diesel engine’s exhaust gas recirculation system reduces pumping losses which increases efficiency and reduces high combustion temperatures. This helps to reduce the NOx from forming in the cylinders.

The new Ingenium petrol and diesel engines will be produced at Jaguar Land Rover’s Engine Manufacturing Center in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom. These are the most advanced engines Jaguar Land Rover has ever designed, engineered, and manufactured. The new Ingenium engines have been made to reduce vehicle emissions and improve fuel economy, keeping with Jaguar Land Rover’s commitment to support more sustainable living.

Land Rover Releases Special Edition Evoque

To celebrate six awesome years of the Land Rover Range Rover Evqoue, Land Rover is releasing a special edition, The Evoque Landmark.

The Range Rover Evoque has had tremendous success for Land Rover. In six years, Land Rover has produced 600,000 units, and the demand for the Range Rover Evoque is still increasing. March 2017 sales reached an all-time high for a single month with almost 18,000 units sold. In addition to its consumer popularity, the Range Rover Evoque has won over 200 awards, making it the most decorated Range Rover model.

The special edition, Evoque Landmark will be available in three different colors, Moraine Blue, Yulong White, and Corris Grey. Moraine Blue, a color designed for luxury, was inspired by the lakes in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

The Evoque Landmark made its debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on May 10. The Landmark Special Edition comes equipped with Land Rover’s latest technology. A 10-inch InControl Touch Pro system includes the Spotify app, a 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot, and a Remote Premium app for a smartphone or smart watch.

The Remote Premium app allows owners to check the status of their Land Rover without stepping foot inside the vehicle. Owners can check the vehicle’s location, whether it is locked or not, the fuel levels, and be able to cool or pre-heat the cabin all from their smartphone or smart watch.

“What makes Evoque so special is its relevance,” Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer, said. “The design remains modern and fresh. The Evoque is widely acknowledged to have brought a whole new youthful generation of buyers into the Range Rover brand, including more women. Its success was clear from the start and gave us the confidence to break new ground, which you can see with vehicles like the Evoque Convertible. The Landmark Special Edition is a celebration of sex years of success so far.”
