Jaguar Land Rover Investing Big in Products, Technologies

Eight new products or significant technologies planned for this year.

by on Jan.16, 2013

Jaguar Land Rover is excited about the upcoming release of its F-Type sports car.

There’s plenty of good news for Jaguar Land Rover these days. Like most of the industry, sales are up. A raft of products and technologies are expected in the next few years, which should lead to even bigger sales increases. And its Indian owners are allowing the brands to spend the money to develop its new products.

It’s been almost five years since Tata Motors purchased JLR from Ford, effectively putting an end to Ford’s much publicized Premier Automotive Group.


Adrian Hallmark, global brand director and a member of the JLR executive committee, told in an exclusive interview that the automaker is in good shape to fulfill its aggressive goals.

First Drive: Land Rover LR4

We imagine an off-roading adventure honeymoon for newlyweds Wills and Kate.

by on May.04, 2011

Land Rovers are all about adventure and the LR4 is ready to deliver.

With the royal couple, Prince William and his princess, Kate, now officially hitched, it’s fun to fantasize about where the world’s most famous couple might take their honeymoon. The easy suggestion would be private tropical island lounging on the beach or snorkeling at an exclusive resort.

But Wills and Kate have shown that they have an adventurous side. Instead of the obvious choice of spending their time lounging at the water’s edge, what if we sent the future king and his bride on an off-roading adventure? Maybe ford some streams, climb some boulders and muck it up in the mud.

Get the Royal Treatment!

But what to drive? A Jeep? No, that seems rather unseemly for a future king. And so very … American. Toyota Land Cruiser? Great heritage, but the only land those behemoths generally cruise these days is paved. No, the royals really don’t have to look very far to find the ultimate in opulent off-roading.

This Land Rover LR4 would seem to be the perfect chariot for our young royals’ adventure. It has indisputable off-roading capability, but still coddles with exquisite leather and a finely tuned stereo. Best of all, it’s as British as tea and crumpets.

A pair of firsts for Land Rover: the 2011 Evoque will be the brand's first crossover and its first front-drive-based vehicle.

Land Rover’s first crossover-utility vehicle, and the first product from the British maker to adopt a front-wheel-drive powertrain, has been formally unveiled on the grounds of London’s Kensington Palace, a part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the U.K. maker’s flagship Range Rover SUV.

The Range Rover Evoque is the eagerly-awaited and much-discussed production version of the Land Rover LRX show car first unveiled two years ago at the North American International Auto Show, in Detroit.

“This is the smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient addition to the Land Rover line-up ever,” declared the maker’s Managing Director Phil Popham, who stressed Land Rover’s goal of “broadening our appeal” with the Evoque.

Land Rover will turn the LRX concept into a 2011 Range Rover that it promises will be the smallest, lightest vehicle it has ever produced.

Land Rover is confirming plans to put the well-received LRX concept vehicle into production, with its expected to reach showrooms, sometime in 2011, as the third model in the premium Range Rover line-up.

Smaller and more fuel-efficient than the other two models, the launch of the LRX is designed to not only expand the appeal of the overall Land Rover brand, but shift it towards a “greener and (more) sustainable” business model, company officials declared, earlier today.

Like all sport-utility vehicle manufacturers, Land Rover has seen a significant shift in public attitude, in recent years.  Though the basic utility of SUVs may still appeal, consumers are seeking better mileage and lower emissions, demands also being made by regulators in the U.S., Europe and other key markets.
