Now those look pretty damn good. Better than the ones out now. I'll take the Range over the Land Rover.

DVS, please cure your Ignorance (that's in your tagline...)

The Range Rover IS a Land Rover.

The Range Rover is a model of Land Rover.

The Defender I believe you are refering to is a Land Rover as well.

If it were not for the Defender, which is a revised version of the original Series I Land Rover, there would be no such thing as a Range Rover.

And the new Range Rover is a car. it has independent suspension. Which will pretty much suck ass.

Uummmm, I know that!! I said I like the Range over the Land that is shown in the pics on that link that you sent!

Where have I referred to a Defender in my comment?

You see! I offer a simple response, you have to get smart with a response!!:mad:
Not a good thing!:right:

I'm just trying to edumacate. the Land Rover you referred to is a defender (therefore I posted it in the Defender section).

That's all I wanted to clear up, hoping to unignorancize you.

Now if you call a Defender a Land Rover, that's true, but if you are trying to state that model of Land Rover, it's a defender, not a land rover.

It looks good. I hope it gets more power. I have always considered them to be better than the hummer.

It is the vehicle my grandpa wants.

That black Range looks TIGHT!! The one on the first link link looked like shit!

Maybe the black one was a concept pic????

Oh and that's not a weird suspension, I think it has HYDROLICS (hittin switches!) :sun:

Oh yeah, and that black one would look REAL DOPE if it had black around the lights-like the one in the link.

It's not hydralics, its a live axle. They give better wheel articulation, more ground clearance, and are just plain better off-road. They can look kinda funny, but it works.

That picture of the Range Rover, is indeed a real picture.
Not only is the new RR going to look so badass, but the technology inside them is going to jump forward in leaps and bounds (think BMW 7 Series Technology)...

Also, I'm sorry to say that not only will the Freelander get IRS, as well as the Range Rover, but there are also plans to give the Discovery IRS as well.

I can see the IRS for the Range Rover, but the defender at least deserves the superior off-road capabilities of a live axle. It is a sad day when the legendary Africa-conquering Land Rover bends over from customer complaints of a "bouncy ride and bad handling for downtown London"
Well, GET THE F*** OUT OF LONDON WITH AN OFF-ROADER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Discos and Defenders are for off-roading, in places where a road is a mud bog. NOT the urban jungle.
