Land Rover Canada Announces Pricing For The Range Rover For 2006

BRAMALEA, ON - Land Rover Canada today announced Canadian pricing for the Range Rover for 2006. The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the HSE model will be $99,900 and the supercharged model will retail for $118,900. Both models come fully equipped, featuring powerful new V8 engines, improved dynamics, and exterior enhancements, reaffirming Range Rover's position as the flagship vehicle for Land Rover.

"With the Range Rover for 2006, the best just got better," said Vic Bernardini, president of Land Rover Canada. "Although consumer demand has never been stronger, we continue to improve Range Rover, ensuring that our customers drive the most premium SUV in the world."

A naturally aspirated 4.4-litre V8 engine with 305bhp is offered in the HSE, while a supercharged 4.2-litre V8 engine producing 400bhp is offered in the supercharged model, making this the most powerful Land Rover ever.


Both engines are lightweight and use advanced torque-based engine management systems that, together with drive-by-wire throttle control and variable camshaft phasing (on the naturally aspirated), continually adjust the engine to deliver optimum performance, fuel economy and emissions. While the result is increased performance, the upgraded engines achieve better fuel economy than the outgoing V8.

The Range Rover for 2006 is not only faster - it is quieter. Cabin noise is reduced as a result of engine changes, laminated front side glass and a modified A-post profile.

Steering is enhanced and the air suspension with adjustable ride-height is improved, for even better on- and off-road performance and comfort.

The Range Rover retains its iconic shape, but there are subtle yet distinct changes. All Range Rovers for 2006 get a new front bumper design, new headlamps and taillights, a new front grille, revised power vents and new 19-inch alloy wheels. 

The supercharged derivatives are distinguished by additional styling modifications including mesh-design front grille and power vents, unique 20-inch alloy wheels, and special black-on-silver badging.

All Range Rover models come highly equipped with a list of desirable features and innovative technologies, including four-corner independent air suspension, Hill Descent Control, harman/kardon® LOGIC7™ digital surround-sound AM/FM-stereo audio system with six-disc in-dash CD changer and 14 speakers, satellite radio, tire pressure monitoring, touch-screen navigation, Bluetooth® telephone connectivity and a rear-view camera.

The supercharged model adds premium leather, Brembo front brakes, adaptive front lighting, chrome exhaust tips and the above-mentioned 20-inch wheels.

Sales for Range Rover for 2006 will commence this summer.
