2013 Range Rover is the world’s first SUV with an all-aluminum unibody structure
Renowned for providing its clients with some of the most luxurious and capable vehicles in the world, the British maker Land Rover has now unveiled its exclusively new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover, which has been engineered from the ground up to be the most refined, lighter, and most capable Range Rover ever. Described to be the world’s first SUV with an all aluminum unibody structure, the vehicle is 39% lighter than the steel body in the outgoing model which enables total weight saving of about 700 pounds. Reinforcing its position among the finest luxury vehicles, this all new fourth-edition of the Range Rover line also captures the innovative spirit and iconic design of the original model, which actually changed the motoring world when it was launched over 40 years ago. Also, we have earlier seen the Victoria Beckham edition Range Rover Evoque, the specially designed ‘Blaser edition’ SUV for the German market, and the most ultimate Range Rover, the Autobiography Ultimate Edition priced at $210K.
The exclusively new aluminum platform not only makes this model lighter, but also delivers significant improvements in agility and performance, along with better fuel economy and considerable reduction in CO2 emissions. And, in addition to the rigid and strong aluminum body, an all-new aluminum rear and front chassis architecture has been developed and paired with a four-corner suspension which has benn completely re-engineered. While retaining the luxurious and ride, the vehicle’s handling and agility have been sharpened, as the new suspension architecture deliver more confident cornering abilities, with an intuitive steering feel.
The new Range Rover’s cabin provides occupants with a sensation of serene isolation, as the measures like the acoustic lamination of the windshield and side door glass significantly reduces noise levels, while the new suspension delivers heightened levels of comfort, control, and refinement.
And, the Range Rover will continue to offer its customers a choice of V8 engines in North American market, enhanced by new 8-spedd automatic transmission.
