Default Land Rover To Mark 40th Anniversary Next June With The Unveiling Of The Range Rover L

Land Rover to mark 40th anniversary next June with the unveiling of the Range Rover LRX - Top Speed
Speaking of anniversaries, Land Rover is set to celebrate its 40th birthday next year and in line with the occasion, the company is planning on unveiling its new flagship luxury SUV, the Range Rover LRX.

The tentative date set for the SUVís official release is June 17 - the day Land Rover turns 40 Ė with plans for the carís production to begin on June 17.

While the carís concept has already been revealed, it seems that rumors abound that the production car will retain very little from what we saw with the aforementioned concept vehicle, although the notable exception would be the optional hybrid drivetrain that both the conception (has) and what the production version will eventually have.

Itís never an easy task for a company that has lost so much money as Land Rover has on a luxury SUV, especially given its market, which has dried up faster than a desert lake on a hot Sunday afternoon. Nevertheless, Land Rover is hedging their bets on their flagship luxury SUV Ė a car that has been a perennial hot seller for the company.

Now weíre not exactly sure how elaborate Land Roverís 40th anniversary celebration is going to be, but judging from the way a lot of manufacturers celebrated their milestone years in 2009, weíre going to expect nothing less than spectacular from Land Rover.

Judging from this announcement, we dare say that theyíre off to a good start.

It'll be interesting to see how this turns out.If the rumors are to be believed,then there might be some possibility of disappointment with the design and what we get to see finally. Ah..lets wait & watch!

JLR gets the grant to go ahead for a new car. Now Land rover is going to build a new car based on the LRX concept. I don't mind the LRX in as is version. it looks stunning as the concept.

this is one of the cars to be looked for. styling is great and will create a new segment once launched. i just hope LR keeps the same design for the road.

Tata motors actually posted a loss and reports say its because of the purchase of the JLR. From what the analysts say is currently in-spite of job cuts and other cost cutting methods, they need a market. Their products should move, the demand has dropped a lot.

I would definitely reckon that model could do well and does some good to the company. Both brands have good cars in the making.
