Range Rover Equipped with New Technology and an Enhanced Prestigious Interior for 2007 Model Year

IRVINE, Calif., May 25, 2006 -- The Range Rover gains a series of enhancements to its cabin, chassis and off-road upgrades for the 2007 model year, reinforcing its position as the world's most complete luxury SUV.

The intuitive Terrain Response(TM) system is fitted as standard on all Range Rovers at 2007 model year, allowing the driver to select one of five distinct vehicle settings to suit the terrain. Key software and hardware settings for the vehicle's powertrain, transmission, braking, stability- control and suspension systems are optimized to tackle these specific conditions.

An optional rear 'e' (electronic) differential is now available (standard on Supercharged models) and works with the vehicle's standard center 'e' differential.

Interior enhancements apply across the Range Rover line-up for 2007 model year. The cabin gains better stowage space (including electronically-released twin glove-boxes), an updated airbag layout, a cleaner center console design, an electronic park brake, and a new fascia, as well as substantially improved air conditioning and ventilation.

The new front seats are now available with optional cooled-air ventilation, in addition to the standard heating feature.
