2012 Range Rover Evoque–Finally some real information, here we go…

So with about 8 more days to go until the official Paris reveal, Land Rover has lifted the embargo and given us all more specific info on the new Range Rover Evoque then all the previous Evoque news releases combined.

The exterior we’ve seen in various forms for a while now, it’s the new interior pictures that really give us an idea of what this vehicle will be.  There’s A LOT of Jaguar XJ in there from the steering wheel to the controls on the doors and window controls.  And the main 8” display also looks different from current Land Rover designs.  It did get the rotary shift knob, which I guess works with the Ford-made 6-speed that I believe is also used in the LR2 – I guess technology could be adapted to a non-Diesel “Range Rovers” after all?

The actual press release has a huge amount of info that I really want to comment on, so I think I’ll break it up into different posts – there will be Range Rover Evoque overload throughout the next few days.

Like I said prior, I think we’re seeing cues of what we’re going to see in the next real Range Rover.  And this does again keep the actual Range Rover in it’s perpetual game of catch-up to all other vehicles with the actual latest technology.

Here’s the full press release for download, it’s the North American version, I’ll take a look at the UK version as well.
