Yes, it is expensive, but if you got the extra dough laying around, go for it. Land Rover has just released pricing for its 2013 Range Rover in the U.S., and it has the starting price at $83,500 (including destination charge), which is about $26,500 cheaper than the Brits with its VAT (Value Added Tax).
If you really want the top-of-the-line model, the Autobiography edition of the Range Rover, it will cost you about $130,950.
What you get for the pricey 2013 Range Rover is its premium all-aluminum unibody structure that is lighter and stronger, making it the world’s first SUV to have such a body-structure material. The result of an all-aluminum body helps reduce the curb weight by about 700lbs, which is a significant amount. The vehicle is unmistakably a Range Rover in design and performance, along with a more spacious and luxurious interior to enhance the driver’s experience.
In addition, it is equipped with Land Rover off-road capability and on-road handling and agility. Enhanced all-terrain performance with the introduction of a new fully automatic Land Rover “Terrain Response 2” system.
“The debut of the all-new Range Rover is a momentous occasion for Land Rover and our loyal owners,” said Kim McCullough, Brand Vice President, Land Rover, North America. “Our customers are incredible brand enthusiasts so they share in the excitement of the U.S. debut of the all-new Range Rover.”
The 2013 Range Rover will be initially available worldwide in 170 countries, and will hit U.S. showrooms later this winter. Until then, do practice your phrase, “Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?” In the meantime check out a slew of images on the above.
