2013 Range Rover Sport #rangerover

Some nice tweaks for the Sport in 2013, let’s hope the next 2013MY announcement is a bit more exciting though. 

Just a few inconsistencies in the official PR released.  The tech documents, although named 2013 are titled 2012 within the document.  And the last line of the press release says:

“Gears are selected by the rotary gear shifter and steering wheel paddle shift.”

On the Range Rover Sport with a gasoline engine and the six speed transmission, it’s always been the standard gear selector, the pictures showing the 2013 interior also show the standard gear selector.

Details, details.

2012 Range Rover–Latest Exterior Images #rangerover

From the Land Rover Media Drive in Scotland, the 2012 Range Rover Autobiography

In certain colors, I really like the body matched trim, I’m just not sure what the thought behind the black surrounding the grille is??

2011.5 Model Year Range Rover gets new leather headliner options #rangerover

This is interesting, well interesting to me at least…

Not sure how new this is to the UK Range Rover site, but while I was checking it, as I do from time to time, there was a new item listed – “Headlining”.  In the US, the only leather headliner option is for the Range Rover Autobiography package and with that I believe there are really only two colors.

For the UK listing it appears to be available across the entire range, from the lowly Vogue to the range topping Autobiography

2011 Range Rover TPMS System in Action–indicates which tire is below pressure #rangerover

I was playing around with the Adaptive Cruise Control tonight on the 2011 Range Rover, I’ll try to post about that soon – anyway on one of the rapid automated decelerations, a Tire Pressure warning popped up.  The interesting thing here was that it actually indicated which tire was low, in my previous 2008 Range Rover, it was just a single indicator, it was up to you to find the tire at fault.  I hadn’t seen this mentioned in the owner’s manual so, here’s what it looks like – sorry for the shaky-cam picture.
