2012 Land Rover LR2

Given slow sales and little marketing support, we’re still more than a bit dubious as to the LR2’s long-term future here in the U.S. market. We speculated earlier that the Range Rover Evoque Pure may spell the end of the LR2 in our region, but two new rumors have cropped up that make us doubly unsure about the LR2’s prospects.

A Sub-Evoque and the DC100

The first is that Land Rover is considering a sub-Evoque (or Land Rover) that could land it square in LR2 territory as far as price and function are concerned. The second rumor is that the 2015 Defender (DC100) could have an introductory MSRP that falls somewhere between $30,000.00 and $40,000.00. A mini-Range Rover and a Wrangler-fighting DC100 seem to leave little room for the LR2.

2012 Land Rover LR2

All that aside, the 2012 Land Rover LR2 is on dealership lots and ready for your inspection. Over the past couple of months, Land Rover has been releasing a trickle of information regarding the 2012 model. For starters, the LR2 is essentially a direct carryover from 2011. So much so that according to the current data we have, introductory MSRPs remain unchanged from last year. We will, of course, update you should that change. In the meantime, we have color swatches for the 2012 model. The color options now include premium metallics such as Barolo Black and Havana along with Baltic Blue, Firenze Red, Galway Green, and others.
