The team at Land Rover Canada recently provided a jaw dropping sneak peak of the 2013 Range Rover for journalists, dealers and a few preferred clientele. The posh Toronto event took place at the trendy Glass House at 99 Sudbury in the Warehouse District, delivering an art gallery inspired backdrop for unveiling the stunning Range Rover Autobiography.
Although the presentation celebrated the rich history of the British brand, it also strongly touched on the rugged capabilities and innovative technology proudly incorporated into the iconic design of every Range Rover built.
The new 2013 Range Rover has been engineered from the ground up to be the most capable and refined generation yet. It's lighter, stronger and ready to prove why it continues to be one of the finest luxury SUVs today.
The big news is its brand new, all-aluminum unibody platform that's 39 per cent lighter, meaning the Canadian-spec Range Rover will be approximately 318 kg (700 lbs) lighter than the previous model. This should add up to significant improvements in both high-performance handling and fuel economy.
For those of you wondering what other major changes have been made on the 2013 Range Rover, rear legroom has been increased by 120 mm (4.7-inches), there's now an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, an amazing Meridian sound system as a standard option and a handy split power folding upper and lower tailgate just to name a few.
The all-new Range Rover will be available in later this year, with Canadian customer deliveries scheduled to start in December 2012.
