ever. It is a strong demonstration of the marque's commitment to
"This is a highly relevant and contemporary vehicle that will suit the
modern needs of our customers," said Jaguar Land Rover Canada
President, Lindsay Duffield. "And because Quebec is a market that
traditionally favours compact, fuel-efficient engines, we really think
the Range Rover Evoque will be a hit here."
Lightweight construction techniques ensure optimum efficiency is
achieved. A new state-of-the-art engine comes with turbocharging and
direct injection. The Range Rover Evoque also adopts low CO2 systems
such as Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) and is built to
maximize end of life recyclability.

car, which drew worldwide acclaim for its fresh interpretation of
classic Range Rover design cues.
Smart design and meticulous engineering has allowed the LRX concept to

On the open road, the Range Rover Evoque offers a polished driving
experience that combines dynamic and sporty handling with responsive,
effortless performance and refinement.

vehicle design themes, each with its own distinctive character,
exterior treatment and carefully coordinated interior package.

interior in neutral colors. Soft-touch wrapped materials on the major

2011 Range Rover
Class-leading V8 engines, a multi-talented 6-speed transmission, Terrain
Response® upgrades and external styling enhancements all combine to

The range-topping, 5.0-liter, 510hp supercharged and 375hp
naturally-aspirated V8s deliver supreme performance. Their
uncompromising, world-class performance is not accompanied by an

predecessors. These lightweight, direct injection engines combine
benchmark efficiency with outstanding power and torque. Acceleration in
the naturally aspirated car to 100 km/h is reached in just 7.5 seconds,
while for those who want the utmost in performance, the supercharged V8
will rush to 100 km/h in a mere 6.2 seconds.

the Terrain Response® system in the form of Hill Start Assist and
Gradient Acceleration Control. Dynamically, the Range Rover is equipped
with the last word in suspension systems by offering Adaptive Dynamics
technology offering firm control of body motions through turns while
providing the calm, composed ride Range Rovers are famous for.
2011 Range Rover Sport
The Range Rover Sport models enter the 2011 model year with a solid
round of refinements, following a transformational 2010 model year that
imbued these performance-focused luxury SUVs with all-new powertrains,
a more luxurious interior and enhanced chassis control technology.
In addition, a 2011 Range Rover Sport GT Limited Edition is available,
combining the performance of the naturally aspirated 375-horsepower
5.0-liter V8 with a similar styling presence to the Range Rover Sport
Autobiography, along with additional features. The Autobiography, which

for 2011. New and reconfigured option packages enhance luxury and
V8 HSE $73,200
V8 Supercharged $88,980
2011 Land Rover LR4

powertrain, a more luxurious interior and chassis refinements for 2010,
the Land Rover LR4 enters the 2011 model year with additional dynamic
control features and a new available Vision Assist Package.
New for 2011, enhancements to the Terrain Response™ system bolster the
LR4's already considerable off-road capability, while new and
reconfigured option packages enhance luxury and value.
2011 Land Rover LR2
Upgraded interior and exterior styling give a fresh new look for the
2011 Land Rover LR2. Exterior design changes include a new front bumper
and two bar grille, giving the LR2 a front appearance in line with the
hot-selling new Land Rover LR4.
Three new colours, and new alloy wheels give the 2011 LR2 an overall
more contemporary, sporty appearance. Inside, a new range of seat
styles and a redesigned instrument cluster give the interior of the
2011 LR2 a fresh appearance.
Land Rover aficionados will also note another small but significant
change in the famous Land Rover logo, which changes colour for 2011
from gold on green to a more contemporary bright silver on green.
