Yet another January 1st is right around the corner, which means it is time to take a look at the top five Land Rover and Range Rover news stories of 2011. This year saw Land Rover introduce a new Range Rover model, introduced two new concept vehicles, broadened its global reach, and set new milestones.
Land Rover better expedite the production of a Range Rover Grand Evoque, because the company is going to need the extra interior room to haul around all the awards the 2012 Range Rover Evoque has been collecting from around the world. To date, the Evoque has tallied up 53 awards. Read on to see them all.
While the foreign press announced this bit of news in November, it's now making the media rounds here in the U.S. that Jaguar Land Rover has opted to skip the 2012 North American International Auto Show (Detroit). Instead, the company will showcase its products at Auto Expo 2012 (New Delhi) in Tata Motors' home market of India.
Back in early August, we joked that the word 'Evoque' would eventually come to mean, "to collect awards at an alarming pace." As it turns out, we were right. Since August, the 2012 Range Rover Evoque has earned an astonishing number of awards. Two of the more recent accolades come from Auto123.com and Bloomberg News.
Over the coming weeks, we will be assembling one-on-one specification comparisons of Land Rover vehicles versus some of their nearest competitors. To kick things off, we have laid out some basic specs for all current model year Land Rovers along with two chief competitors for each model. We have included the MSRP of the trim listed, engine size, horsepower, and MPG.
