Powerful new engines, revolutionary interior technologies and enhanced driving dynamics reinforce the position of the Range Rover Vogue 10MY as Land Rover's most complete luxury 4x4. Land Rover's flagship has been comprehensively updated to deliver more refined and efficient performance, along with the ultimate in interior comfort and craftsmanship.

"The Range Rover Vogue 10MY is a considerable step forward for what is already regarded as the one of the world's most complete luxury vehicles. New engines deliver formidable power, efficiency and customary Range Rover Vogue refinement, and new technologies, such as the dual view screen, deliver a world first. Like its legendary predecessors, the Range Rover Vogue 10MY is setting the pace once more," says Phil Popham, Land Rover Managing Director.

The interior benefits from more luxurious materials and finishes which add further refinements to the premium cabin ambiance. More significantly, the Range Rover Vogue 10MY uses some revolutionary new interior technologies which enhance the experience for driver and passengers alike.

The vehicle is the first to feature 'dual view' infotainment touch screen technology which allows the driver and passenger to view different images simultaneously. This means that the passenger can enjoy a DVD movie while the driver follows navigation instructions, all on the same screen.

Another dramatic innovation is found in the instrument cluster. Here, traditional physical instruments are replaced by a fully configurable 12" TFT screen which presents all essential driver information via cleverly designed 'virtual' dials and graphical displays.

"The new display technology used by the Range Rover Vogue 10MY is a major advance. It gives us tremendous flexibility in presenting information, so that the driver gets precisely the data they require, in all driving conditions. Meanwhile, the passenger can be relaxing with a movie!" explains Nick Rogers, Chief Engineer, New Vehicle Architecture.

The vehicle incorporates state-of-the-art Adaptive Dynamics technology to further improve the Range Rover Vogue's peerless ride quality. All-terrain performance is also enhanced by updates to the Terrain Response and Stability Control systems.

To complete the package, the Range Rover Vogue 10MY benefits from a series of enhanced active safety aids including Adaptive Cruise Control, Emergency Brake Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, Automatic High Beam Assist (AHBA) and a surround camera system.

"The Range Rover Vogue remains the consummate luxury 4x4. Its combination of unrivalled all-terrain performance with the ultimate in comfort and refinement, remains a clear industry benchmark," says Phil Popham, Land Rover managing director.

Under the banner of e_TERRAIN TECHNOLOGIES, Land Rover is implementing a range of measures to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, without compromising Range Rover Vogue's refinement or renowned all-terrain capabilities. Both of the new direct injection petrol engines were designed from the outset to deliver class-leading fuel economy and improved low-end torque.

e-TERRAIN TECHNOLOGIES in summary:

  • Engine calibration optimized
  • Reduced torque-converter slip
  • Higher torque, allowing longer gearing
  • Intelligent Power System Management (IPSM) including smart regenerative charging
  • Improved aerodynamics

The Range Rover Vogue 10MY will go on sale in Australian late 4th quarter 2009, with pricing, specification and model line up, still to be confirmed.
