Land Rover Philippines Opens Order Books For All-New 2023 Range Rover


Land Rover Philippines has opened the order books for the all-new Range Rover. The flagship SUV blends comfort, composure, and all-terrain capability will start arriving at local showrooms by June.

Underpinned by the new Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA-Flex), the 2023 Range Rover (as it’s officially designated locally) will be available in both standard and long wheelbase versions with four, five, or seven seats. Standard across the range is all-wheel steering and which turns the rear wheels by up to seven degrees resulting in a turning radius of 5.5 meters—smaller than a compact sedan or SUV. It also has electronic air suspension.

The local engine range starts with the D350 which is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-6 turbo diesel engine with 350 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque. This is followed by the P440e which is a plug-in hybrid with 440 horsepower and 620 Nm of torque. At the top is the P530 which serves up 530 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque thanks to a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine. All engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic driving all four wheels.

Standard across the range are advanced adaptive LED headlights (Digital LED) with animated directional indicators, and a power tailgate. Wheel sizes start at 22 inches for the standard wheelbase, and move up to 23 inches for the long wheelbase version. Customers can also choose between the Nickel Atlas (bronze), Shadow (black), or Autobiography Packages.

Inside, the all-new Range Rover features perforated semi-aniline leather seats with 20-way heated/ventilated seat (24-way in the long wheelbase version). The long wheelbase version also adds the option of captain’s seats at the back (Executive Class Comfort Plus). In terms of infotainment, it has the largest-ever touchscreen fitted in a Land Rover at 13.1 inches. The curved, floating screen provides control with haptic feedback of all the major vehicle functions. The Pivo Pro-based system works in conjunction with the 13.7-inch interactive driver display. Meanwhile, depending on specification, the rear seats can enjoy the rear seat entertainment system with 11.4-inch HD touchscreens with HDMI inputs. A Meridian 3D Surround Sound System is standard. Other functionalities include power assisted doors (soft-close is standard) and active noise cancellation speakers built into the headrests.

Safety-wise, the 2023 Range Rover comes with autonomous emergency braking for the front and back, blind spot monitors with rear cross traffic monitors, adaptive cruise control with steering assist, lane keep assist, front and rear parking sensors, and a 3D surround camera.

Since the all-new Range Rover is on a by-order basis, the pricing depends on the exact configuration chosen by the customer (so far, no two Range Rovers have been speced alike, says Land Rover Philippines). Pricing though starts at around P 17-million.

Land Rover Philippines has set up the Range Rover Configuration Area to help potential owners learn more and spec their 2023 Range Rover. These are located at the All British Cars showroom in BGC and along EDSA San Juan. Contact them at +63 2 8424 4200 / +63 919 083 6726 (BGC) or +63 2 8784 5003 / +63 919 068 2598 (EDSA San Juan) to set an appointment.
