2012 Land Rover LR4 HSE Luxury Limited Edition
The Land Rover LR4 is a full-capability luxury SUV that deftly combines renowned off-road capability with premium on-road
luxury and ride quality. A spacious third row offering seven-passenger seating makes it an exceptional option for family travel.
Introduced for the first time in New York, the new Land Rover LR4 HSE Luxury Limited Edition offers a sophisticated new take on the Land Rover LR4. The interior receives upgraded and expanded leather coverage in an all new Arabica color, including leather trim on the door tops, door pulls, arm rests and dashboard fascia.

LAND ROVER DC100 CONCEPT
Land Rover will feature an updated version of the DC100 Concept. The DC100 explores possible design directions for the future
of the iconic Land Rover Defender. Land Rover is showing this concept in North America to gauge reaction and explore the possibility of bringing the Defender back to the U.S. market. This updated DC100 features expedition accessories including an air-intake snorkel for wading, a roof mounted equipment rack, and an integrated winch.
Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept
The Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept has been developed by Land Rover Design Director, Gerry McGovern and his team.
Commenting on the concept, McGovern said: “The Range Rover Evoque lends itself beautifully to the idea of a convertible. This
study is not a traditional convertible design execution – instead we have worked with the balance of the Range Rover Evoque’s
lines to retain its distinctive shape and create something that is unique and, we believe, highly desirable.”
The soft-top convertible concept is based on the Range Rover Evoque Coupe. It features a fully retractable premium roof system with a Roll-Over Protection System. The concept cleverly combines capability and versatility with a drop down tailgate and a comfortable four seat package. The vehicle has been developed with Land Rover DNA at its heart, retaining key characteristics including a sports command driving position and all-terrain capability.
2012 Range Rover Evoque
Voted as 2012 North American Truck of the Year, and selected as the 2012 Motor Trend SUV of the Year, it has attracted over 90 accolades across the globe. The extraordinary design language and driving dynamics of the Range Rover Evoque have captured the public imagination. Demand has been so great, that the factory will be operating on a three shift schedule, 24 hours a day. With advanced lightweight design, and powered by a 240 horsepower 2.0 liter engine, it is the lightest and most fuel efficient Range Rover ever made, achieving a 28 MPG Highway US EPA rating**. The Range Rover Evoque is priced from $43,995.
