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.
