The new Range Rover which debuted globally recently will be launched for customers in India on the 30th of November 2012. This announcement comes as a surprise as it has been seen that generally car makers take quite some time after international launches, before they launch their cars in Indian markets; may be this is effect of the Indian management having better knowledge of Indian Market situation!

The new 2013 Range Rover SUV was officially unveiled earlier this year in August. Subsequently, Jaguar Land Rover announced that they have invested £370 million in the new Range Rover which boasts of an all aluminum chassis, that makes it lightweight thereby improving performance and fuel economy.

Fuel emissions too are reduced considerably. Wheelbase has been raised by 100 mm and an innovative air suspension system coupled with Terrain Response 2 makes it easier for one to traverse any type of terrain with ease.

Three engine variants are available for those opting to buy this vehicle. Engine specifications are as follows: 4.4 liter V8 diesel, 3.0 liter V6 diesel and 5.0 liter V8 petrol. These engines produce power outputs of 335 bhp, 255 bhp and 503 bhp respectively. Six piston brembo brake caliper for the front wheels, power steering as also an 8 speed ZF transmission which powers the wheels are features in the new model. Expect the new Range Rover to carry a price tag of INR 1 Crore. Official prices will be revealed at the launch on 30th Nov 2012. Deliveries of the 2013 Range Rover will begin next year.

As predicted, it's launched on the time & is priced at Rs. 1.72 crores (ex-showroom, New Delhi)

As one would expect on an SUV that is priced at 2 crore rupees, there is no shortage of gadgets. You get a 8-speaker Meridian auto system (825W), a rear seat entertainment system, 8-inch dual view touch screen display and a sliding panoramic roof among a bouquet of features and options.

The new Range Rover is launched in three variants – two diesel and one petrol – with 4WD technology and an 8-speed automatic transmission.
