Minor updates for MY2015 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport

Various sources indicated to me that the MY2015 wouldn’t bring too many changes and now I know which of my sources to really believe – even had the new silver color in a tip.

Here’s the official PR, not much but I definitely could have used the Intelligent Cargo Mode on the 4th of July.  And the fixed panoramic roof is great, it would make for a tough decision – go for full glass without the crossbeam or keep the crossbeam and the ability to open the roof up.

ENHANCED PERFORMANCE AND INCREASED PERSONALISATION OPTIONS FOR 2015 MODEL YEAR RANGE ROVER AND RANGE ROVER SPORT

  • Range Rover and Range Rover Sport continue to improve the customer experience by offering an extensive selection of in-car technology, including Land Rover InControlTM
  • Uprated SDV8 with additional 40Nm for effortless overtaking; enhanced eight-speed transmissions on diesel SDV8 and petrol SCV6 derivatives
  • Increased personalisation options, including exterior colours, alloy wheels, panoramic roof and interior colourways

Whitley, UK, 15th July. Land Rover is introducing a comprehensive suite of updates Range Rover and Range Rover Sport for 2015 model year, reaffirming their status as the world’s best luxury and premium sporting SUVs, unrivalled in their breadth of capability, both on- and off-road.

‘As the world’s best luxury and premium sporting SUVs, the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have long offered an unrivalled combination of performance, luxury and off-road capability,’ says Phil Popham, Group Marketing Director, Jaguar Land Rover. ‘These latest updates ensure both vehicles maintain their market-leading positions, with a special focus on performance, efficiency and increased personalisation options.’

Clean engines and even greater performance

The potent SDV8 now produces 339PS and 740Nm – a 40Nm increase – with a fuller torque curve from 1700 to 3300rpm thanks to detailed calibration changes. This improves in-gear acceleration by up to 6.5% from fifth to eighth gear, ensuring effortless overtaking ability and enhanced towing capability. The ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic gearbox has been re-engineered with a revised torque converter incorporating a twin-spring damper. Despite such a large increase in torque, the SDV8’s fuel economy and CO2 emissions remain unchanged at 32.5mpg and 229g/km CO2.

Derivatives using the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine continue to offer a potent 340PS and 450Nm, but a new ZF 8HP45 8-speed automatic transmission saves 6kg, improves gearbox efficiency and ensures full compliance with new emissions requirements

Distinctive new features and additional convenience for Range Rover and Range Rover Sport

Updated puddle lamps now project each vehicle’s silhouette onto the ground at night to light the way for occupants.

Fixed panoramic roofs with power blinds are now available and bring an additional sense of space and light to both vehicles’ luxurious interiors. Meanwhile, 19-inch alloy wheels with a Satin Dark Grey finish introduce a stylish option for buyers wishing to use smaller wheels in global markets where conditions and surfaces may prove more challenging.

Increased personalisation options for Range Rover derivatives

An updated colour palette features Aruba silver and Kaikoura Stone, and long-wheelbase derivatives can be specified with a sophisticated 22-inch alloy wheel for the first time.

Inside, an Intelligent Cargo Mode senses if the rear seats are about to make contact with the front seats when folded down to increase luggage capacity, and automatically moves the front seats forwards. Once the rear seats have folded flat, the front seats are returned as close as possible to their original position.

Luxurious Autobiography Black can now be specified in all markets, and is available with an exclusive new Lunar/Cirrus interior colour combination. Autobiography Black signature details include unique Santorini Black and Bright Chrome exterior trim, LED tail lamps, unique 21- and 22-inch alloys, new seat designs with Semi-Aniline leather, customer-configurable mood lighting, and additional swathes of leather.

Even more choice for Range Rover Sport customers

The Range Rover Sport’s exterior colour palette has been updated for 2015 to include the distinctive new Aruba silver, and the roof and door sills can now be finished in body colour or contrasting black.


Land Rover InControlTM technologies go even further

Land Rover InControlTM technologies continue to be introduced in new markets, with InControl Remote and InControl Secure now available on Range Rover and Range Rover Sport derivatives in France, Italy and Spain as well as existing markets.

InControl Remote includes an integrated SOS Emergency Call, Optimised Land Rover Assistance and a Smartphone App which enables you to connect remotely with your vehicle wherever you are. InControl Secure tracks the vehicle should it be stolen.

InControl Apps and InControl Wi-Fi are new Land Rover InControl technologies which debut on Range Rover and Range Rover Sport derivatives.

InControl Apps will launch in the UK, USA, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. InControl Apps allows owners to sync smartphone apps to the vehicle’s touchscreen, and is compatible with Apple and Android smartphones

InControl Wi-Fi will be available in the UK, Germany, Russia, France, Italy and Spain and provides instant in-car access to a mobile hotspot which allows up to eight devices to be used simultaneously.

The 2015 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are available to order from 16th July.
