The starting point we go by for towing capacities are the Land Rover-specified limits seen in this post. The maximum towing capacity is the largest amount of weight allowed (trailer + load) when the Land Rover and the trailer are properly equipped. The proper equipment is typically an OEM hitch receiver and trailer wiring for the Land Rover combined with a braked trailer. However, towing capacities can be impacted by a number of variables.
The 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show is winding down but the automotive industry is still buzzing about the DC100 and DC100 Sport concept vehicles that made their debut on September 13th. Reinforcing just how significant the DC100 Sport is, Autoweek has named the DC100 Sport concept "Best in Show."
Recalls and technical service bulletins are two parts of a notification system designed to keep your Land Rover safe and up-to-date. Recall and TSB data is very useful for current owners as well as those who are shopping for a used Land Rover. Prospective owners will want to make sure the vehicle is current on all recalls. Current owners can benefit from doing a recall search in case they have missed a recall notice in the past.
Back in June we published a Land Rover Wish List. Surprisingly enough, nearly all of our wishes have come true to one extent or another. Or rather, Land Rover has hinted that they will come true in the future.

Land Rover's commitment to developing hybrid powertrains has been further reinforced by the new DC100 and DC100 Sport concept vehicles revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The pair of concepts feature diesel and gasoline versions of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The DC100 is equipped with the diesel version for maximum off-road capability and the DC100 Sport features the gasoline version.
