Adventure to Namibia & Utah

Land Rover Dallas is so excited to announce Land Rover’s new adventure travel experiences in Namibia, Africa and Utah! Both Land rover Experiences will feature the new Discovery.

“Adventure plays a key part in what makes for an exhilarating drive – whether it be an iconic road trip or on the road-less-traveled,” Mark Cameron, Jaguar Land Rover Global Experiential Marking Director, said. “To do this from behind the wheel of the new Discovery makes it unique. These self-drive adventures will offer an exceptional driving experience where our customers will get the chance to push the vehicle to its limits and enjoy unforgettable surroundings.”

The Land Rover Namibia Adventure will go over eight days, starting October 14, 2017. The experience starts with a briefing of the new Discovery to be sure guests know the vehicle they will be driving through Africa. Guests will be able to view Africa’s wildlife and breathtaking views. The road trip will mainly focus on visiting popular sites.

Guests will see sand dunes, Etosha National Park, and where Namib desert meets the South Atlantic Ocean, making for some incredible photographs. The Land Rover Namibia Adventure will cost about $5,600 per person. This includes all driving activities, meals, accommodations, and airport transfers.

The Land Rover Utah Adventure will go over five days, starting October 17, 2017. The experience challenges guests’ driving skills while experiencing incredible scenery. The first day of the experience will be a training day to prep guests on the drive through the Seven Mile Rim, Poison Spider Mesa, and the Hells Revenge Trails.

The Arches National Park, red rocks, and canyon lands lead to an experience you will never forget. The Land Rover Utah Adventure will cost about $6,000 per person. This includes all driving activities, meals, accommodations, and airport transfers.

Both the Namibia and Utah Adventures are sure to be incredible!

Making Waves Towards Sustainable Energy

At Land Rover Dallas we are excited to announce Jaguar Land Rover’s partnership with sustainability experts, ClimateCare! ClimateCare’s goal is to being safe and clean solar technology to rural communities in Kenya. The program, ‘Lighting up Lives,’ specifically aims to target children and their education.

Jaguar Land Rover believes that renewable solar powered energy is an affordable alternative to the use of kerosene light. Kerosene can create hazardous indoor pollutants which makes it one of the largest causes of premature death in all of Africa. Jaguar Land Rover believes that implementing ‘Lighting up Lives’ will improve the education in the children of the rural communities, which will then give women greater opportunities to learn and work, and the living conditions will be safer and healthier.

Many of the children in these communities can only work on their schoolwork during daylight hours because they have no access to any sort of electricity. With the implementation of the ‘Lighting up Lives’ program, children are able to complete their schoolwork and be able to spend more time looking upon the faces of their families.

“This exciting new venture is exactly the type of program that Jaguar Land Rover wants to lead on in the future,” Helen McLintock, Jaguar Land Rover Director, said. “Using technology for good and supporting the power of engineering to improve lives and help to build a cleaner future. Our purpose is to make responsible business relevant to everyone. By sharing our skills, our technology, our people and our passions we can make a difference to people’s lives and prosperity.”

Recently, Jaguar Land Rover announced they would be moving to 100% renewable energy at all of their United Kingdom facilities. Keeping to their word, Jaguar Land Rover has installed the largest group of rooftop solar panels in the United Kingdom at their Engine Manufacturing Center.

We are proud to be a part of Jaguar Land Rover and their goal to make the world a cleaner and more sustainable place to live. We aim to make a difference, not only in our own community, but in communities around the world.

Jaguar Land Rover Steals the Show

Jaguar Land Rover made a splash at the Shanghai Motor Show in Shanghai, China! The Land Rover Range Rover Velar and the Jaguar I-PACE Concept made their Chinese debut.

In 2016, Jaguar Land Rover sold almost 120,000 vehicles in China, Jaguar Land Rover’s largest single market. After being a part of the Chinese market for just over a decade, Jaguar Land Rover has over 200 operational retailers, a Land Rover Experience Center, 10 apprentice training programs, and 3 training academies.

“Jaguar Land Rover is a technology company, creating world-class premium cars. Today, we have unveiled two revolutionary new vehicles – the Range Rover Velar and the Jaguar I-PACE Concept,” Dr. Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO, said. “Jaguar Land Rover constantly pushes the boundaries and this spirit is embodied in both of these vehicles. China is of huge importance to us. It is our largest single market and over the past seven years our success and brand influence have been strong not just in terms of sales but in the facilities we have built here and the jobs we have created.”

The Land Rover Range Rover Velar will be built exclusively in the United Kingdom and will be made of Jaguar Land Rover’s incredible lightweight aluminum intensive architecture. The Range Rover Velar will be powered by the latest ultra-clean UK-built Ingenium engines.

The Jaguar I-PACE is Jaguar’s first concept of a performance SUV. Engineers and designers have worked tirelessly to create a vehicle that does compromise Jaguar’s outstanding luxury or performance. The Jaguar I-PACE Concept promises a long-distance range, incredible performance, and quick charging times.

In addition to the reveal of the new vehicles, Jaguar Land Rover has plans to increase the capacity of their Changshu plant by 70,000 vehicles. They also plan to expand existing facilities (like the body shop) and build a new trim and final shop. Currently, the Jaguar XF Long wheelbase, Land Rover Discovery, and Range Rover Evoque are all built at the Changshu plant.

You Could Win a Peruvian Off-Road Aventure

Land Rover will be hosting an off-road competition across the United States to win one of four spots on the Land Rover Experience Tour Peru 2017. During this tour, consumers will be able to drive the new Land Rover Discovery on an action-packed six-day off-road expedition through the Peruvian mountains, jungles, and desert.

The first of the four trials has already taken place at Overland Expo West May 12-14 in Flagstaff, Arizona. The last three winners will be selected from trials taking place at three different Land Rover Experience Driving Centers located at the Quail Lodge in Carmel, California; the Equinox Resort in Manchester, Vermont; and the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. The trials will take place between June 1 and August 31 on select weekends. You may only enter each trial once.

“Creating this competition to give consumers the chance to win a trip on the Land Rover Experience Tour taking place in Peru this year, provides an opportunity for us to showcase the unique features of the new Land Rover Discovery and engage with adventure minded individuals at our Experience school locations,” Kim McCullough, Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC, Brand VP, said.

The winners will travel in pairs of two to Peru for the Land Rover Experience Tour Peru 2017. The first pair of winners will travel from October 28 to November 3 over 500 miles from Cusco, through Machu Piccu, Pitchari, Satipo, and will end their leg of the trip in Huancayo. The second pair of winners will join the tour from November 4 to November 9 from Huancayo and will drive almost 400 miles through the Peruvian mountains and through the desert on the way to Pisco, Peru.

Land Rover Supports Three-Day Event

The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Equestrian Event, Presented by Land Rover, took place April 26-29, 2017. This event combines Dressage, Cross-Country, and the Jumping Test.

After the Cross-Country ride only 39 horses were left to compete in the final challenge, the Jumping Test. This year’s jumping course featured a 2017 Range Rover Sport and a 2017 Range Rover Evoque Convertible, set by Richard Jeffrey. This course proved very difficult. Only four competitors finished clear within the time.

Land Rover Ambassador, representing Great Britain, Zara Tindall, had an excellent round on her 16-year-old bay, High Kingdom. One of the last to go, representing France, Maxime Livio rode the fourth and final clear found of the day with his horse, Qalao Des Mers. Germany’s Michael Jung was last to go on his 12-year-old mare, fischerRocana FST. Jung incurred four faults, but was still able to claim the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event title for the third year in a row. Livio finished second and Tindall finished third.

“fischerRocana FST is a top horse, the mare fights to hard for me and our partnership is so strong,” Jung said. “She gave me a very good feeling the warm up ring which made me feel good entering the arena. I did not have enough power in the triple combination so I was nervous with two jumps to go! I am grateful for my team and really pleased with the result.”

Phillip Dutton, Olympic bronze medalist, represented the United States on his Irish Sport gelding, Mr. Medicott and finished in fourth place. He also was awarded the USEF Championship Trophy, an award that goes to the highest placed American rider. This is Dutton’s fifth year to win this award and his fortieth time to compete in the Rolex Kentucky Competition.

“It is particularly rewarding to finish as the top US rider,” Dutton said. “It has been a great event and it is the perfect was for Mr. Medicott to finish his four-star career.”

Land Rover is proud to continue to support the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event.
