  • 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Dragon Challenge

    The Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a jack-of-all-trades and a master of many. It isn't quite as luxurious as the top-of-the-line Range Rover, but it's sportier. It sits lower than that vehicle, so it's not quite as capable off-road, but it can still handle itself well when the pavement ends. This combination of on-road dynamics and off-road capability made it the perfect choice for Land Rover's latest stunt: A high-speed run on China's Dragon Road, followed by a climb up the steps at the end of that road to the legendary Heaven's Gate rock formation. It was a simple matter of 99 turns...

  • Frank Rothwell and the Land Rover he converted to a coal-powered steam engine  [frame: YouTube]
    This man converted a 50-year-old Land Rover to run on coal (as one does)

    The classic Land Rover Defender evolved over its long life from frequent use as a farming implement to new life as an iconic all-wheel-drive trophy truck. The end of Defender production in January 2016 was practically a national day of mourning in England. Now, you can even get Defenders entirely...

  • Project Tuki by East Coast Defender
    East Coast Defender looks back on the SUV's past with Project Tuki

    East Coast Defender will happily build customers an original Land Rover Defender with a modern twist, but for those who seek something with a little more heritage, Project Tuki may be the answer. The Florida-based company revealed the heritage-inspired SUV this past Wednesday, and it boasts a few...

  • Land Rover Range Rover SV Coupe
    Limited-edition Land Rover Range Rover SV Coupe to sacrifice utility for style

    If BMW and Mercedes-Benz can do it, why can't Land Rover? The British SUV maker will add style and subtract utility from its legendary Range Rover with the Range Rover SV Coupe debuting in March at the 2018 Geneva auto show. Land Rover on Tuesday revealed a teaser image of the interior of the...

  • Land Rover Defender Works V8
    Land Rover Defender V-8 conversion marks 70th anniversary

    It was 70 years ago that the Rover company introduced the first Land Rover. The vehicle stayed in production right through to the 1980s when it was replaced by the Defender, which itself finally ceased production in 2016. Land Rover is expected to celebrate the historic run by revealing a...

  • Voyage self-driving car prototype

    There's no shortage of startups looking to be among the first to develop safe and reliable self-driving systems to power fleets of potentially lucrative self-driving taxis. Among them is America's Voyage, which was formed by ex-engineers of Apple and Alphabet and on Thursday received $3 million in funding from Jaguar Land Rover. This brings the company's funding to date to about $20 million. Voyage has already deployed its self-driving cars in large retirement villages and is licensed to test them on Californian roads in 2018. The company is refining its technology and service with feedback...

  • 2019 Land Rover Range Rover P400e PHEV
    Next Land Rover Defender to reportedly offer electric option

    Land Rover hinted at it to Motor Authority. Now it appears to be true. At a press event for the Land Rover Range Rover Velar in October, Land Rover told Motor Authority an electrified Defender off-road SUV wasn't off the table without confirming or denying such a powertrain. Now, a report published...

  • 2019 Land Rover Range Rover P400e PHEV
    2019 Land Rover Range Rover PHEV first drive: London, here's your off-roader

    A cynic could argue that the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover P400e PHEV is a compliance special for the well-heeled. But the reality is that adding an electric motor both keeps the world's flagship SUV a viable option for city dwellers in places like London and points toward the future of off-roading...

  • Jaguar I-Pace concept, 2016 Los Angeles auto show
    Electric Land Rover based on Jaguar I-Pace platform coming

    Jaguar Land Rover is set to introduce its first electric car next year in the form of the Jaguar I-Pace.

  • 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

    Land Rover is busy charting its future path, and aside from a possible S-Class rivaling "Road Rover", the brand is also looking at a 2-door SUV as a flagship vehicle. On Friday, Drive reported that Gerry McGovern, Land Rover's design boss, alluded to such a flagship vehicle during the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. The executive hinted Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) could build a limited run of the proposed ultra-luxurious 2-door SUV, but he didn't provide a solid answer. "I can’t say when, but there are opportunities," he said. "We have proven that with Range Rover...

    2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography dials up the luxury in Land Rover’s flagship SUV

  • 2018 Land Rover Discovery
    Land Rover Discovery sees price rise for 2018

  • 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque
    RIP: 3-door Land Rover Range Rover Evoque goes away for 2018

  • East Coast Defender Project Barbour
    Fashion label Barbour commissions bespoke Defender to celebrate Land Rover-inspired line

    Barbour is a British fashion label famous for its rugged, waterproof clothing. The Land Rover Defender is also British, is also rugged, and is also quite adept at wading through water. Now these two icons have come together. Barbour sells a line of Land Rover Defender-inspired clothing, and to help...

  • 2011 Land Rover DC100 concept

    There’s probably no greater challenge for a designer than redesigning an icon. And they don’t get more iconic than the Land Rover Defender, a vehicle whose design hasn’t changed much in close to seven decades. Land Rover was forced to end production of the Defender last year, with the most recent model unable to meet crash safety and emissions regulations. Mercedes-Benz has a similar problem with its equally iconic G-Class, though the German automaker has taken the easy route by making its redesigned G-Class almost a direct copy of its predecessor. Land Rover design boss...

    Land Rover has learned a thing or three since its sale nine years ago. First, pegging your future and bottom line on an all-SUV lineup can be rewarding (except when it isn’t). Second, British automobiles and reliability don’t have to be mutually exclusive (except when it is). Third...

  • 2,000,000th Land Rover Defender
    Yes, new Land Rover Defender may be electrified; no, world not ending

    Deductive logic may lead to an uncomfortable truth for Land Rover fans around the world. This week, at a press event for the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar, the automaker confirmed that it would offer electrified powertrain variants for its new models beginning with the 2020 model year. That...

  • 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar
    2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar preview

    If the Range Rover Evoque is too small and the Range Rover Sport too big, there still may be a Range Rover for you in Land Rover’s lineup: the 2018 Range Rover Velar. Unveiled to the world in March at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the new small SUV member in Land Rover's luxury lineup is almost...
