2013 Land Rover Range Rover Priced From $83,500 To $130,950

Land Rover has revealed just how much buyers will pay for the new 2013 Range Rover SUV. Although the company hasn't yet shared pricing for other trim levels, the base 2013 Range Rover starts at $83,500 (including destination), and the fully kitted-out Autobiography trim will require $130,950.

Those prices represent a moderate increase compared to the old model. The 2012 Range Rover HSE started at $80,275 after destination, with prices topping out at $126,665 for the Autobiography and $170,000 for the Autobiography Ultimate Edition.

It's no surprise that the 2013 Range Rover is more expensive than before, because it has lots of significant updates. For one, the new SUV is as much as 39 percent lighter than its predecessor, thanks to extensive use of aluminum for the body and suspension. While the 375-hp 5.0-liter V-8 and 510-hp supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engines are untouched, the Range Rover drops its old six-speed automatic in favor of a more efficient eight-speed automatic transmission. The company also will launch a hybrid version that uses a turbodiesel V-6 engine, but emissions regulations mean the Range Rover hybrid won't be sold in the U.S.

In addition to the mechanical changes, the 2013 Range Rover's design has evolved slightly to encompass a rounded front fascia, while the interior offers more legroom and a leather-wrapped dashboard and touch-screen infotainment system inspired by the smaller Range Rover Evoque.

Land Rover will show the 2013 Range Rover later this month at the Paris Motor Show. It goes on sale in the U.S. at the end of this year.

My wife and I have owned a Discovery, an LR4 and 5 Range Rovers. A foundation of the brand had been that form followed function. This has always been an axiom of the brand that has spoken to our personal values – "NO BLING". If we wanted bling, we'd drive an Escalade. We drive Range Rover because RR gives honest engineering built to a purpose which results in solid, honest, not pretentious, functional beauty – not bling. Now in equipping US 2013 RRs with non-functioning gills that have moved from the fenders to the doors, RR has decided to roll into the hood and compete by running the Escalade's play of adding BLING for no purpose. I will be embarrassed by those gills if I can overcome them enough to by a BLINGED out Range Rover. It would will feel as embarrassing as if I'd purchased an HSE and kited it out to fraudulently present itself as a supercharged – a pretender, a want a be. Range Rovers have always been the real deal with no pretense. Those nonfunctioning gills are a huge graffiti splash screaming "pretender" all over a truck that has no need to pretend. If one didn't know better, those nonfunctioning gills would appear to be a spandex mini skirt on mutton dressed as lamb! I hope they offer an option without embarrassing pretense. I honestly don't know if I can drive a truck that advertises me as a pretender. Range Rover has never forced me to contemplate this in the past and has now broken that trust!
