Land Rover North America to launch new LR3 model this week

Land Rover launched a media preview on 2 April of the LR3, an all-new SUV that will make its debut at the New York International Auto Show on 7 April, before going on sale in the US later this year.

Marking a departure from LR's normal model designations, the LR3 is powered by a Jaguar-sourced 4.4-litre 300bhp V8 driven through a six-speed "intelligent shifting" auto gearbox. The seven-seater with fold-flat seats features fully independent electronic air suspension.

The LR3 is equipped with Terrain Response, Land Rover's adaptive chassis/traction control system which allows the driver to select one of five terrain settings via a rotary switch, with swivelling headlights and a roof featuring a sunroof and two 'moonroofs'.
