Have you ever wanted to take an iconic Land Rover Defender through its paces on an off-road track without going through the trouble of finding one in the U.S. and then maybe getting it seized by the feds? Jaguar Land Rover North America will help you scratch that British off-road itch with its newly announced Land…
Automakers, for some reason, enjoy branching into “lifestyle” products, only to be met with intense ridicule for... decades. But they do it anyway, maybe to add a little spice to their lives other than choking out the word “dynamism” in every sentence. That’s (probably) why this world now has a Land Rover stroller.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Not every part of making loads of money is pleasant. You have to do things you don’t like, things that aren’t comfortable in your soul. Take Land Rover’s design head, who thinks it’s a shame so many cows have to be killed for seat leather. But that’s just how the sad, sacrificial cookie that is capitalism crumbles.
I can watch cars get sideways all day, but nothing is quite as satisfying as seeing a big top-heavy box of a truck like the Land Rover Discovery nail a drift like a boss.
Doing a J-turn (aka a Rockford) is one of the coolest tricks you can pull in a car. Notice how I specify a car? Yeah. Don’t try this in a Range Rover up a curb. Watch this Rangie driver find that out the hard way.
An overzealous off-roader at the Jersey Shore apparently posed his Land Rover close to the tide to get what might have been an excellent picture of his truck. Things started to go south as soon as he rolled onto the wet sand.
The Land Rover LR4 was one of the few three-row luxury SUVs you could actually take off-road. But it’s a dinosaur, ancient and clumsy. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery that replaces it is leaner, more comfortable and still goes to work when the pavement disappears. The Discovery badge is back, and it means something…
I mean, it sure as shit doesn’t seem like you’ll be able to see anything out of the new 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar with those small windows and that high beltline, but it’s quite the sleek-looking SUV from the outside nonetheless. I kind of like it.
The new 2017 Land Rover Discovery— the successor to the mighty LR4— is upon us, and I’m in Utah off-roading and on-roading (Is that a word? Anyway) the crap out of it for a few days. So tell me what you want to know, and I’ll do my darnedest to figure out some answers.
Land Rover has officially resurrected the “Velar” name, which is what the OG Range Rover prototype was called back in 1969. The 2017 Range Rover Velar will be a little bigger than the Evoque, a little smaller than the Sport, and ostensibly essentially a different take on the Jaguar F-Pace.
The darkness was thick, almost metallic. Even though I had the brights on, their normally powerful light seemed to be completely swallowed up by the shadows on either side of the car. I was driving the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, I could barely see anything, and that’s exactly how it was supposed to be.
Rejoice, rich people yearning for first-generation Range Rovers! Land Rover’s new “Range Rover Reborn” program means you can buy a completely restored version of their classic SUV for a Ridiculous But Who Cares Because You’re Rich price. Now you can own an essentially brand new example of perhaps the greatest SUV of…
The Land Rover Defender is an archaic, slab-sided agricultural work truck. Yet people are paying $200,000 for custom versions with extra layers of leather inside and outrageously overpowered engines. I’ve driven a lot of steroidal trucks, but East Coast Defender’s Chevy V8-swapped Land Rover was definitely one of the…
You probably figured the 550-horsepower Range Rover Sport SVR could make a quick 0-to-62 time on pavement. But what about snow? Or the beach? Land Rover was curious too, and proud enough of the results to share them with the world.
The camping-with-your-car-but-more-hardcore scene known as “overlanding” has picked up some steam in the last few years. And this $50,000 Wild Fennec conversion for your Land Rover Defender is pretty much the ultimate manifestation of it.
Beloved British car writer and collector Harry Metcalfe has added one hell of a vehicle to his garage: one of the ten Land Rover Defender SVX monster trucks made for that mountain chase scene in the last James Bond movie Spectre. Lucky for us, Metcalfe’s taking the opportunity to crawl all over it with a camera.
Silverstone, the most recognizable racing circuit in the United Kingdom and site of the very first Formula One race in 1950, needs cash. Sadly, they won’t be getting it through a deal with Jaguar Land Rover anymore, reports Automotive News. Jaguar Land Rover had been in talks to lease or buy Silverstone.
If you make your living by betting people what the largest (by number of bricks) Lego structure is, then I’m sure you know that the record goes to a colossal X-Wing fighter, made from 5,335,200 bricks. Well, did go to. It’s time to revise your data, because Land Rover has beaten that X-Wing with a Lego Tower Bridge…
