New Range Rover Takes on Washington at Steamplant Grill

SPOKANE, Wash., June 18 -- As part of a nationwide tour promoting the newly redesigned Range Rover, Land Rover North America will pay a special visit to the Steamplant Grill in Spokane, Washington. The tour is designed as an exclusive preview for existing and potential Land Rover customers to experience the luxury and sophistication of the new 2003 Range Rover.

The 2003 Range Rover is only the third all-new Range Rover in 31 years, and with a remarkably attractive price of $69,995, including free scheduled maintenance for 4 years/50000 miles, it is set to enhance Land Rover's reputation as a maker of premium vehicles.

"Bringing the Range Rover to Washington, specifically to the Steamplant Grill is a privilege for Land Rover," said Jon Williams, Land Rover vice president of Marketing. "The venue is considered to embody a rustic, industrial time in history and the new Range Rover stands proudly with this landmark."

The all-new Range Rover is now available with what has been called the most beautiful interior of any car or truck and an evolved exterior that embraces many of the iconic design features that have so endeared Range Rover to its North American customers.

Innovative design technology is expected of every Land Rover and the new Range Rover doesn't disappoint. Independent front and rear suspension, and a variety of electronic control systems are among the features that move the 2003 Range Rover into a class of one.

The Steamplant Grill is a restoration of an actual working steam plant built in 1916 that provided steam heat to over 350 downtown buildings until 1986. Two of the original boilers from the plant were converted into dining rooms for the restaurant, creating a rugged sophistication that distinguishes the grill as one of the more popular and unusual restaurants in the area.

The Range Rover Drive Experience event will take place Thursday, June 20, 2002 from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. and includes a hors d'oeuvres reception, and opportunities to drive the newly designed 2003 Range Rover. Range Rover is now available as of June 1st at local Land Rover dealers.

Land Rover North America, Inc., established in 1986, imports and distributes Range Rover, Discovery and Freelander four-wheel drive vehicles manufactured for sale in the U.S. by Land Rover in Solihull, England. Land Rover's worldwide operations are wholly owned by Ford Motor Company, Dearborn, Michigan. For information about the Land Rover Retailer nearest you, call 800-FINE-4WD or visit .
