2020 Range Rover Full US Order Guide – everyone gets an HSE!

The 2020 Range Rover Sport info last week tipped off all the changes coming to the real Range Rover – A $130,300 PHEV Autobiography was unexpected.  Supercharged designation is still dead.

What’s New

Exterior
-Two new paint colors
  -Eiger Grey (replacing Corris Grey)
  -Portofino Blue (replacing Loire Blue)
-Black Pack Availability
  -032EI will now be available on Range Rover trim levels for the first time, previously Black Pack was only available for HSE & Supercharged models.
-The Black Pack is available with three choices of black wheel:
-029TN: 21” Style 9001, 9 spoke, Gloss Black
-031NY: 22” Style 9012, 9 spoke, Gloss Black
-031YM 22" Style 5004, 5 split-spoke, Gloss Black
-Please refer to page 20 for pricing for each derivative
-Badges
-From 2020 model year, similar to Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Sport all Range Rover derivatives (excluding SV products) will carry a trim level badge and a power output badge prefixed with P or D depending on the fuel type.
-For example: the existing 254hp TDV6 will be badged as the D260 along with the trim level badge.
-Supercharged models will now have “P525 HSE” on the rear tailgate of the vehicle.
-Shadow Walnut is now the standard fit trim finisher for Range Rover, HSE & Supercharged derivatives.

-Reductions to Option Complexity
-CD/DVD Player now linked to Rear Seat Entertainment
-Feedback from our retailers and customers has highlighted that there is an expectation that the RSE option should also include the CD/DVD player.
-Removal of 8” Rear Seat Entertainment
-This feature has been removed due to low take rates at 18MY and 19MY. The low take rate of 8” RSE is partially driven by improvements in the functionality of the 10.2” screens and 8” RSE not being available with Executive Class seats.
-The Entertainment pack has now been updated to include the 10.2” RSE rather than the 8” RSE.
-Removal of Gesture Sunblind
-Customer feedback was that this feature was rarely used and could be inadvertently activated by reaching to adjust the rear view mirror. Customer impact is minimal as the physical buttons that adjust the sunblind will remain,as will the auto open/close function when the engine is started and stopped.
-Autobiography Seating Choices
-300LZ is now available for Autobiography models, this offers customers the 24way front seat with the rear bench seat to give customers a viable alternative to Executive Rear Seating without degrading front seat comfort. As a result,the previous alternative seat, 300LY will no longer be available for ATB models.
-Smoker’s Pack
-Due to low take rates for the front smokers’ pack, we removed the fronts mokers’ pack option, leaving only the front and rear smokers’ pack.

Powertrain
New Ingenium 6 cylinder Engines in 355hp & 395hp outputs.

Official 2020 Range Rover Sport updates finally kill InControl Apps, bring new P525 & RIP “Supercharged”

We’ve been wondering when the 2020MY updates would drop and Range Rover Sport is up first:

2020-L494-Range-Rover-Sport-Product-Guide-192004.034

Daytime Running Lights
For 2020 the daytime running light feature will only illuminate the front LED Signature DRL. All other lights will remain off unless headlights are activated. Note Previous model years the tail lights would also illuminate with DRL activation.

Gesture Sunblind
Due to low usage and negative feedback from inadvertent activation this feature has been removed from 2020 Range Rover Sport.

Gesture Tailgate
The gesture feature has been removed from the SE model for 2020. If desired it is available as a stand alone feature.

Rear Seat Entertainment
Based on retailer / customer feedback we now have the CD/DVD player as a required feature when Rear Seat Entertainment is selected.

P400 HST
The HST with P400 Ingenium 6 cylinder engine will continue through the 2020 model year maintaining the same standard equipment and optional features.

Carbon Fiber Exterior Pack
Due to low volumes of this pack we have removed the feature from the V8 models. Note this pack will still remain available on the P400 HST

Smartphone Pack
Now standard equipment on all Range Rover Sport models. Because of this standardization we have decided to discontinue and remove the InControl Apps from the system.

Auto-Dimming Passenger Side Mirror:
Driver’s side mirror will include the auto dimming feature but passenger side ceases to include this feature. This practice aligns to that adopted by a number of competitor products over recent years.

Electrically Deployable Side Steps
We will now prewire all Range Rover Sports to facilitate the installation process. This will  reduce installation times and minimize the amount of interior panels that need to be removed during installation.

New Badging Strategy
Starting with 2020 model year Range Rover Sport will receive the new cross carline badging strategy first seen on the Range Rover Velar.   This includes the “SPORT” remaining in place and the powertrain and trim level badge being placed below.

Also affected by this change are V8 variants. The “Supercharged” badge currently used on V8 models will no longer be used. V8 (non Autobiography or SVR) vehicles will be equipped with a “P525 HSE” badge on the tailgate. The chart below outlines how the new badges will be applied the lineup.

New Metallic Paint Colors
Loire Blue & Corris Grey are metallic paint colors that have been on the Land Rover palette for several years. They are colors that provide a great look, but do not deliver the latest technology in paint. For 2020 model year we will introduce Portofino Blue & Eiger Grey which deliver the latest paint technology in terms of visuals and light shift, while maintaining similar colors for the Land Rover palette.

Black Exterior Pack & Black Wheels
At 20MY we will introduce a new Gloss Black Wheel to the lineup while also making the Black
Exterior Pack available to the HSE trim level on all powertrains.
We do acknowledge the previous model year’s constraint on black wheels and believe that the
introduction of this new black wheel along with the adjustment of existing wheel offerings will
resolve these constraints.
− With the introduction of the P400 HST model at 19.5MY we brought in a new unique optional wheel 22” ‘Style 5086’. (Previously HSE Dynamic would option to ‘Style 9012’).
− The highly constrained 22” ‘Style 9012’ wheel is now offered only on V8 models.
− With the 20MY introduction of 22” ‘Style 5004’ Gloss Black wheel we expect this will relieve our constraints on black wheels.
