Introducing The 2011 Range Rover Vogue – A Capable And Luxury 4WD SUV

The 2011 Range Rover Vogue retains its position as one of the world’s most complete luxury vehicles. Its combination of reduced CO2 emissions and superior engine performance continue to make it a clear industry benchmark. And with the introduction of our all-new ‘super diesel’, we see the Range Rover Vogue delivering under 9.5 litres/100km for the first time,” said Phil Popham, Land Rover Managing Director

A new, class-leading V8 diesel engine, new 8-speed transmission, two significant “Terrain Response” upgrades and subtle external styling all combine to ensure the 2011 Range Rover Vogue retains its crown as king of the luxury SUV segment.

The LR-TDV8 4.4-litre with parallel sequential turbocharging replaces the outstanding LR-TDV8 3.6-litre and is unique to the Range Rover Vogue. An all-new super-diesel, the LR-TDV8 combines superior power and massive torque with unparalleled levels of refinement. Despite the extra performance, this sublime V8 engine is cleaner too, delivering even lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions than its predecessor and meeting the same EU4 emissions standards. The headline news, though, is that the combined cycle fuel consumption of the new LR-TDV8 4.4-litre is just 9.4 litres/100km, making this the first Range Rover Vogue ever to better 10 litres/100km.

With 230kW and 700Nm torque, the Range Rover Vogue’s new powertrain matches power with conscience, reducing CO2 emissions by an impressive 14 percent. The new diesel engine is helped in this respect by its marriage to an impressive new, electronically controlled, ZF 8HP70, 8-speed automatic gearbox tuned by Land Rover engineers to combine silky smooth shifting with exceptionally rapid response and outstanding fuel economy. This daunting combination is enough to catapult the Range Rover Vogue from rest to 100kph in a mere 7.8 seconds and complete the 80kph-120kph dash in just 5.1 seconds.
Available only on 4.4-litre LR-TDV8 models, this smart transmission integrates with the diesel engine to deliver the most efficient operating regime in all conditions. To reflect the performance of the new 4.4-litre LR-TDV8, diesel models are fitted with the same Brembo-based braking system fitted to the 5.0-litre LR-V8 supercharged model. Providing the immense stopping power required for only the highest performing vehicles, the system comprises 380mm ventilated front discs with unique, lightweight aluminium six-piston opposed action monoblock calipers. 365mm ventilated discs with single piston sliding calipers are fitted at the rear.

For 2011, the Range Rover Vogue retains the same class-leading 5.0-litre LR-V8, supercharged petrol engine married to the ZF HP28 6-speed automatic transmission introduced in 2010. Developing 375kW and 625Nm torque the Supercharged LR-V8 will take the Range Rover Vogue from 0-100km/h in a breath-taking 6.2 seconds.

The 2011 Range Rover Vogue is further enhanced by improvements to the Terrain Response system in the form of Hill Start Assist and Gradient Acceleration Control. Inside the cabin there are optional illuminated treadplates for the front doors, new transmission controls for the diesel model, and improvements to the entertainment system. Detail improvements to the exterior include new Jupiter grilles and side vents for the diesel models.

A new Exterior Design Pack option gives customers the chance to give their Range Rover Vogue a more individual look and new colours and wheels have been added to the range.

The Range Rover 11MY range will be available in Australia from early 2011. Pricing details will be released closer to launch date.
