Canadian 2012 Land Rover Lineup

Our neighbors to the north get a Land Rover lineup that echoes what we have here in the U.S., so we’re not the only ones in North America who feel left out when it comes to the Defender. If you want to own a new Defender in North America you have to move south of the Rio Grande, but that’s all neither here nor there as far as this post is concerned. That’s just us whining again about our Defenderless ecosystem. What we’re really going to talk about today is Land Rover’s Canadian lineup and pricing on the 2012 LR4. 

Canadian Lineup

For 2012, the Canadian market gets the LR2 in base, HSE, and HSE LUX trims; the LR4 in V8 (base), HSE, and HSE LUX trims; the Range Rover Evoque in Pure, Prestige, and Dynamic trims; the Range Rover Evoque Coupé in Pure and Dynamic trims (no Prestige Coupé for North America); the Range Rover Sport in HSE, HSE LUX, Supercharged, and Autobiography trims; and the Range Rover in HSE, HSE LUX, Supercharged, and Autobiography trims. Despite trim lines being identical between Canada and the U.S., standard equipment and available options will differ.  

Land Rover Trivia

As an interesting side note on localization, Land Rover adds the accent over the “é” in Coupe for marketing materials in many other countries — the UK, Mexico, Canada, France, etc. — but not in the United States. Now if somebody ever makes a Land Rover edition of Trivial Pursuit, you’ll be armed with one more bit of information. 

2012 LR4 Highlights

The LR4 saw a number of significant interior improvements and a couple of exterior changes for the 2012 model year. We covered the LR4’s changes more in-depth on our 2012 Land Rover LR4 Receives Technology Updates post, but here are a few highlights:

  • Audio Upgrades – The top-of-the-line audio system is now a harman/kardon® LOGIC7® system featuring 825-watts of power and 17 speakers.
  • Compact Smart Key Fob – The smaller key fob includes functions for locking, unlocking, opening the tailgate, and engaging the panic alarm. 
  • Revised Navigation System – The seven-inch navigation touchscreen displays improved informational screens and graphics. The navigation system is also now capable of receiving Traffic Message Channel data, which offers on-the-fly traffic information.
  • Revised Rear Seat Entertainment System – The entertainment system now comes with WhiteFire™ wireless headphones and a larger eight-inch screen. A single-disc DVD drive is located in the audio head unit. 
  • New Alloy Wheel Designs – You can see all the Land Rover LR4’s wheel options on our 2012 Land Rover LR4 Factory Wheel Options post. Standard and optional wheel choices between Canada and the U.S. are identical. 
  • “Say What You See Voice Controls” – Land Rover’s previous voice control system could be rather… testy. The new system includes a step-by-step display on the touchscreen and enables control over navigation, the rear seat entertainment system, phone, aux input, USB/iPod (basic control), CD/virtual CD changer, satellite radio, notepad, and the radio. 
  • New Color Options – We have an updated LR4 color swatch post available.

The 375-horsepower 5.0-liter LR-V8 engine carries over from 2011.
