one life, live it!

OUR BUMPER July issue has been specifically crafted to inspire readers into action. We have trawled the globe to find stories of people doing incredible trips in their Land Rovers. It’s that lovely time of the year when the days get longer and the birds wake you with their happy songs, so pile the family, dogs and mother-in-law into the Land Rover and explore. Not all of us can undertake costly trips to far-flung places but you really don’t have to. There is an adventure waiting to be had on your very doorstep. You just have to be open to finding it! Why not try greenlaning in mid Wales? See my feature on page 50 to find out which lanes are not to be missed. Our cover Defender (the capable camper)…

tested to extremes

FOR THOSE that didn’t celebrate (and why not) World Land Rover Day was on April 30, and to mark the occasion, the new Land Rover Defender reached a development milestone as the prototype fleet hit the 1.2 million kilometre landmark. For its next challenge it will be put to the test in the field, supporting operations at the Borana Conservancy in Kenya, with Tusk Trust, as part of the brand’s 15-year partnership with the charity. A Defender prototype wearing a unique camouflage will tow heavy loads, wade through rivers and carry supplies across unforgiving terrain in a series of real-world trials at the 14,000 hectare reserve. By the time the new Defender makes its public debut later this year, it will have passed more than 45,000 individual tests in some of the most…

range rover evoque complies with stricter emissions standards

THE NEW Range Rover Evoque has become the first luxury compact SUV to be certified under stringent new NOx emissions targets, Real Driving Emissions stage 2 (RDE2), ahead of the official legislative introduction for new models in January 2020. All Land Rover models already meet the standards required by the first phase of the RDE testing procedure, which came into force in September last year. However, the new Range Rover Evoque (in D150 manual FWD trim), now complies with the even more rigorous second phase requirements, which states that the vehicle must emit 80 mg/km or less of NOx. Nick Rogers, Executive Director of Product Engineering, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “Meeting the standards for this certification almost two years ahead of schedule is a real achievement and a result of collaboration within…

straight-six and mild hybrid drivetrain improves efficiency of range rover

THE LATEST 3.0-litre 400hp petrol engine is now available for the Range Rover, delivering clean and efficient technology for customers. With the introduction of an electric supercharger, which coordinates with the twin-scroll turbocharger to virtually eliminate turbo lag, it spools up in 0.5 seconds up to 6500rpm. This means the six-cylinder engine provides an impressive torque response, up to 406 lb-ft in fact. These features, underpinned by the latest Ingenium petrol engine, form part of a Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain designed to bring enhanced efficiency to the range with fuel economy of 30.4 mpg (9.3 L/100km) and CO2 emissions of 212 g/km* (NEDC equivalent combined). It is the latest step taken by Jaguar Land Rover to ensure it offers an electrified option on all new models from 2020. Based around a…

land rover 4x4 in schools programme inspiring teenagers

TOMORROW’S ENGINEERS are learning to code self-driving vehicles of the future today thanks to the unique Land Rover 4x4 in Schools programme. Self-driving cars will require an estimated one billion lines of computer code, which is staggering when you learn that’s almost 1000 times more than the 145,000 lines required by NASA to land Apollo 11 on the moon. To meet the growing need for more coders to deliver these future autonomous and connected vehicles, Jaguar Land Rover is looking to inspire the next generation of software engineers. This year more than 120 talented future engineers from schools in 20 countries met in the West Midlands for the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge world finals, and it was the NewGen Motors team from Greece who came out on top overall…

discovery landmark edition

LAND ROVER is celebrating 30 years of Discovery with a special Landmark Edition, which comes with upgraded standard features and design enhancements that resonate well with existing customers. It takes the best-selling SD4 and SD6 Discovery SE models, which are already well-appointed, as a starting point and adds the Dynamic Exterior Pack, which includes a more purposefully designed front bumper and Narvik Black mesh grille and wheel arch vents, joined by unique Landmark badging and scripting. The exterior is also marked out by fixed front and rear panoramic roofs, front fog lights and signature Hi-Line tail lights, while privacy glass and 20 inch Gloss Black wheels add a dose of aggression. The interior is available with a choice of Ebony or Acorn grained leather, while a Satin Brushed centre console and unique…
