Where did this come from!? MY2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography

2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography (11)

Interesting news release today with top-of-the-line Autobiography spec being added for the Range Rover Evoque.  Further still, these type of packages usually don’t make it over to the US market but this PR was released by both LR UK & US.  All the talk of a higher-performance Evoque might be realized in the Autobiography Dynamic which now includes a 45HP upgrade.  They tweaked the front grille, it will be interesting to see if that rolls out across the line or if it’s Autobiography specific.

This is also the first real mention of the InControl system in a production vehicle.

Reading through the 14.5 Order Guide shows LWB & Autobiography Black clues were hidden in plain sight

The above shot is from the Range Rover 14.5MY UK Pricing & Order Guide, which was public before the Autobiography Black was announced.  There’s lots of neat info in it. Right there on the first page of data was the yet-unannounced Range Rover Autobiography Black LWB.

First the “Autobiography Black Badge” which was used for a 2011 model on the previous generation Range Rover but not on the current model yet, so that was a clue.

Then a little further down, starting with the Hybrid AAG Badge.

We knew what the Hybrid AAG was, which leads us to the L’ AAG Badge – which we now know is for the LWB designation.

So that info was right there in front of our noses, hopefully next time I’ll read a little closer the first time around.

Does anyone out there know what AAG stands for?
