    2013 Range Rover On and Off-Road 0-60 MPH First Drive Review

    The brand new 2013 Range Rover is 700 pounds lighter than the out-going model.

    In a world where cars get heavier, that’s very unusual. The lighter weight can be attributed to Range Rover using lots of aluminum in the construction premium British SUV.

    The 4th generation of the iconic off-road vehicle is also more posh, more dirty worthy and of course, more expensive.

    In this exclusive TFLcar first drive review, we test the new 2013 Range Rover both on and off-road to see how it drives near the Grand Canyon in Utah and Arizona.

    We also test the Range Rover Performance from 0-60 MPH, we get the SUV muddy and vertical on some very challenging off-road terrain.

    Starting at $83,545, the newest Range Rover is an all new vehicle:’Featuring a commanding Dark Atlas front grill, body colored front bumper, vent blades and door handles, the Range Rover has a fresh and contemporary appearance. For more individual style, there’s a wide choice of interior colors and exterior paints, standard 19 inch 5 Split Spoke wheels plus a selection of optional striking 20, 21 and 22 inch alloy wheels. Inside are standard power adjustable seats upholstered in grained leather with driver’s memory and heated front seats. The luxury experience is enhanced with a state-of-the-art Meridian* Sound System providing stunning sound quality with 380W.

    For exceptional driving refinement, the Range Rover provides a superb, responsive LR-V8 5.0 liter engine. This engine is paired with an advanced eight-speed automatic transmission and is engineered to suit individual driver requirements by balancing the delivery of power with fuel economy.” – – Range Rover

    1. Range Rover Range Rover, stay in TATA-ville and just send a Grand Cherokee Diesel over ! Sorry Roman, but I am not of “privileged” descent nor a Wall Street “Walrus” but I can (barely) afford a Very Nicely equipped JEEP GC instead ! I JUST DO NOT “GET IT,” never will ! If I really do want Off Road capability, well “WE” know where to go – Wrangler Rubicon (or Unlimited) ! THEY even come automatically with the correct Tires! On a Personal note, I much prefer (after experience with both) the Manual/Clutch Method of FEELING the Road thru the tired and the steering wheel and pedals to “get up the hill!” So, Sure, even treat yourself to all the Luxury add-ons and still come under $50 G’s . . . heck buy 2 and still have money left over for a yearlong Overland “Xperience” ! Or “buy” a high priced “date” for the weekend ! Of course IF I could afford the Rover I also would be able to “buy” the girl too ! ! ! Well, let me get back to the video and see how it ends, ugh!

    2. PT.2 / ps; and now the rest of the story (at videos end ! 3 Feet of Water and open the doors ? But, what if I were in Brazil near a shallow Amazon Lake and “tested” that theory out ? The Peronia (sp?) flesh eating fish would be my demise ! ! ! and all that $$$$$$$ gone to waste !

    3. Hey Roman, who was the pretty blond Lady in the back of the Range Rover, who was in danger to become “seasick” in the back, LOL.
