MAHWAH, New Jersey — The debut of the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Long Wheelbase model is set for the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The new 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Autobiography Black will be unveiled at the 2013 Dubai Auto Show next week, and make its U.S. debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show in mid-November.
Pricing was not announced on either model.
The long-wheelbase Range Rover, which goes on sale late in the first quarter of 2014, has 5.5 inches more rear seat legroom than standard-wheelbase models. The long-wheelbase models will be available first on Supercharged and Autobiography trim levels with either a bench seat or individual rear seats with a center console.
All long-wheelbase vehicles will get standard powered door blinds and a panoramic sunroof, along with "L" badges. The long wheelbase will be offered on Range Rover Vogue, Vogue SE, Autobiography and Autobiography Black models. A Range Rover Hybrid derivative will become available later in 2014.
This is the first Range Rover long-wheelbase model in 20 years, the company said. The Range Rover LSE ran from 1992-'94.
A limited build of around 100 units of the Range Rover Autobiography Black is planned for the U.S. market in 2014. The first 25 will be built in Valloire White pearlescent paint. It is described as the most luxurious specification for the Range Rover.
The SUV is available in long-wheelbase only for the U.S. market.
Details include a unique design finish on the front grille and side vents, exclusive wheel designs and a rear center console with electrically deployable tables in black leather with integrated USB charging sockets. The special model also gets LED mood lighting and three exclusive color combinations. They are Ebony/Lunar, Espresso/Tan and Dark Cherry/Ivory.
Edmunds says: The already impressive Range Rover lineup gets a shot of adrenaline with these two new models.
