2012 Land Rover Discovery 4 Brochure, interesting updates! #landrover #discovery

A loyal reader, Patrick, sent me the scoop on these 2012 brochures.  They were definitely news to me!

We’ll start with the 2012 Discovery 4, which gained, along with some other tweaks, the rotary shifter along with updated Terrain Response controls, the Range Rover Evoque’s touch screen system, what look like huge rear seat entertainment screens & the updated smaller Smart Key.  I’m sure some of this stuff may be old news to people already driving Evoques in the UK.


I like what they did with that Land Rover branding


Also related to the rotary shifter, a new option I haven’t seen before, Drive Select Rotary Shifter Upgrade, requires Leather Drive Select Top Cover.


Here’s that new Smart Key.  Again probably old news to Evoque owners, I noticed this key in a Land Rover press photo from a couple of weeks ago but he’s a better view.


Finally a shot of the larger RSE screens:

Thanks again Patrick!!

Range Rover Touch screen remote control User Guide

Although we won’t being seeing it on this side of the Atlantic, here’s the user guide for the new touch screen remote control, first shown in this 2011 Range Rover video.  One thing I found interesting, was that it’s still just an IR remote.  I know that makes a lot of sense, it’s probably just a swap for the normal remote control, I initially assumed it would be RF.  All the more reason to just let us have it in the U.S. too.
