First it was the 1,000,00th Discovery, now it's the 300,000th Land Rover Freelander 2 (LR2). You remember the LR2, don't you? It's the little Land Rover that has been soldiering on despite living in the significant shadow of the larger Land Rover LR4 and the Range Rover trinity.
The 2012 Land Rover LR2 offers 10 color choices for the new model year; five premium colors and five standard colors. The color options now include Barolo Black and Havana, both premium metallics, along with the familiar Ipanema Sand, Fuji White, Indus Silver, Santorini Black, and others.
Land Rover doesn't run many national sales events, so when the Drive the Extraordinary push was announced we suspected there was something good on the way. That something good happened to be a purchase incentive on the all-new 2012 Range Rover Evoque. Land Rover is now offering the Evoque with financing incentives that start at 1.9 percent for qualified buyers.
Jaguar Land Rover has announced a recruitment campaign to fill 1,000 new openings at its Halewood manufacturing plant. The additional shifts created by the hirings will bolster production of the Land Rover Freelander/LR2 and the 2012 Range Rover Evoque. The recruitment drive is targeting production operators, supervisors, and engineers.
Jaguar Land Rover Canada has announced the launch of Jaguar Land Rover Canada Financial Services. This financial services arm will provide Canadian customers with "a broader spectrum of premium financial services." Services became available to Canadian Jaguar and Land Rover customers March 1st, 2012.
