2013 Range Rover SUV goes rock climbing in Morocco


The new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover got redesigned since its debut at the Paris Motor Show, and here today, the company has released some details along with lively photos of the Range Rover rock climbing in Morocco. The Range Rover is made for the outdoor excursions, and for the record, the major of people who bought this SUV would never see their vehicles anywhere near a mountain or river.

We all know that the previous Range Rover models can be very heavy, so Land Rover built the new 2013 Range Rover to be lighter with extensive use of aluminum body structure. The result is a reduction of a whopping 700 pounds in curb weight compared to the previous model. Not only that, the company made the new SUV even more powerful with a 5.0-liter V8 engine producing about 357 horsepower, and mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. If you want more power, it is expected a supercharged model to follow.

The 2013 Range Rover will have a starting MSRP of $83,500, which includes a destination charge, and it goes on sale in the U.S. by the end of 2012.
