Land Rover Austin is celebrating the Range Rover’s 45th birthday this month, adding just one more reason to give praise and admiration for the world’s most desirable luxury SUV.
So far 2015 has seen quite a many highlights for Land Rover. At the New York International Auto Show in March, Land Rover revealed the exclusive SVAutobiography as well as the landmark six millionth Land Rover, the Range Rover Vogue SE, which rolled off the Solihull production line in April.
Over the last 45 years Range Rover has delivered a series of industry firsts as it has evolved into the unmatched SUV we know today. As well as introducing a plethora of advanced technologies, many of which have since become industry standards, the original Classic model was cited as an “exemplary work of industrial design” when it became the first vehicle to be displayed at the world famous Louvre museum in Paris.
The Range Rover sits at the pinnacle of the Land Rover brand and matches class-leading off-road capability with a range of state-of-the-art gas, diesel and Hybrid powertrains to deliver an unrivalled blend of refinement, comfort and capability.
Nick Rogers, Jaguar Land Rover Director Global Engineering Operations, said: “Range Rover was the first luxury SUV in the world in 1970 and 45 years on it continues to lead the way. The latest model is the most desirable and sophisticated Land Rover ever, mixing peerless comfort with cutting edge technology to provide the ultimate luxury SUV experience.”
Range Rover’s epic journey began in the sixties as Land Rover looked to revolutionize the growing 4×4 leisure market, and now in its 4th generation, it is still crowned as the original luxury all-terrain vehicle and will continue to be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years ahead.
