Jaguar Land Rover will showcase its latest lineups from both brands at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, held from Nov.22 – Dec.1, 2019 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The show will feature the highly anticipated North American debut of the New 2020 Land Rover Defender, the world’s most iconic 4×4 reimagined for the 21st century.
Driven by a passion and respect for the original, the New Defender delivers transformational breadth of capability and advanced all-terrain technologies to redefine adventure while remaining true to the pioneering spirit of the Land Rover brand’s storied 70 year heritage. The New Defender is available in perfectly proportioned ‘90’ and ‘110’ body styles. Available in Spring 2020, the Defender 110 will be priced from $49,9001 in the U.S., while the Defender 90 First Edition will be available in Summer 2020 priced from $65,1001. The full range of Defender 90 models will be available in Fall 2020, priced around $50,0001.
Additionally, the New Defender featured in the upcoming James Bond movie, “No Time to Die,” will be on display during the auto show. “No Time to Die” is the first movie to feature the New Defender, and will be released in April 2020.
This fall, Land Rover announced the creation of 4xFAR, a live music festival combining award-winning musical performances with lifestyle, culinary and adventure experiences. The festival was created to celebrate the New 2020 Land Rover Defender coming to the U.S. and will be the first opportunity for consumers to experience the New Defender. 4xFAR will take place Jan.18-19, 2020 in the Coachella Valley in Southern California; for more information, visit www.4xFAR.com.
In addition to showcasing several derivatives of the New Defender, the Land Rover stand will also showcase the Land Rover Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover SVAutobiography, Range Rover Sport PHEV and the Range Rover Evoque.
Jaguar will display its entire current lineup, including the new Jaguar XJ Collection Edition, a limited production luxury sedan with 300 units available exclusively to U.S. customers. Also on the stand will be the full ‘PACE’ family of Jaguar SUVs including the all-electric I-PACE performance SUV, the E-PACE compact SUV and the F-PACE SVR, the pinnacle of the Velar lineup. Other vehicles on display will include the Jaguar F-TYPE Checkered Flag Limited Edition Convertible, designed to celebrate the brand’s rich sports car heritage and the newly enhanced 2020 Jaguar XE sports sedan.
During the show, Jaguar Land Rover will host on- and off-road consumer test drive experiences from the Jaguar Art of Performance Tour and Land Rover Above and Beyond Tour2. The Jaguar Art of Performance Tour will include the opportunity for consumers to drive the all-electric I-PACE performance SUV, F-TYPE sports car and award-winning F-PACE SUV in a series of street drives.
The Land Rover Above and Beyond Tour will allow guests to drive a selection of Land Rover and Range Rover vehicles in a series of street drives as well as on a purpose-built off-road course designed to highlight the brand’s breadth of capability.
Land Rover will also offer a Carpool Karaoke experience, allowing visitors to sing their favorite tunes in a Land Rover vehicle and learn more about the upcoming 4xFAR festival. Land Rover will also offer a Junior Drive Experience for children between the ages of four and 10 years old accompanied by a parent or guardian to drive an electric Series I kiddie car on an indoor course. On Friday, November 22, Land Rover ambassador and famed big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton and former professional volleyball player Gabby Reece will host a book signing of Hamilton’s latest book, “Liferider.”
The drive lounge and indoor drive experiences will be located in the South Atrium Hall; off-road drive experiences will be held across from the convention center on Figueroa Street.
NEW 2020 LAND ROVER DEFENDER
Reimagined for the 21st century, the 2020 Land Rover Defender offers the most off-road capable Land Rover vehicle ever while staying true to the brand’s iconic design and reputation for rugged go-anywhere utility. The New Defender will be available in 90 and 110 body styles, with up to six seats in the 90 and the option of five, six or 5+2 seating in the 110.
Delivering transformational breadth of capability and on-road handling, the Defender is in a category of its own. The Land Rover brand has developed the new all-aluminum D7x platform that delivers the stiffest Land Rover body ever created, with a torsional rigidity of 29kNm/Degree – making it three times more rigid than traditional body-on-frame designs. The New Defender is also the first Land Rover to feature Configurable Terrain Response®, allowing drivers to fine-tune a range of settings to suit the conditions more precisely than ever before3.
While still embracing its known and loved silhouette, the short rear overhang on the Defender, the same for both body styles, is made possible by mounting the spare wheel externally, rather than under the rear floor, where it is readily accessible off-road. The trademark side-hinged rear door is further engineered to accommodate any of the available wheel and tire combinations. These strong foundations provide an ideal basis for the fully-independent suspension, twin-speed transfer box and permanent four wheel drive.
To complete the functional, durable and flexible interior with exposed structural elements, the iconic 4×4 debuts the new PIVI Pro4 infotainment system featuring an intuitive interface, while Software-Over-The-Air updates allows customers to access to the latest software updates remotely. Additionally, the vehicle features an intuitive 10-inch touchscreen with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility delivers enhanced user experience and broader range of functions5.
Owners will be able to further tailor the New Defender to their lifestyle through the fitment of four distinct optional Accessory Packs (Explorer, Adventure, Country and Urban), as well as an available 170 individual accessories.
2019 JAGUAR XJ COLLECTION SPECIAL EDITION
The Jaguar XJ Collection Special Edition is a limited production model celebrating the last of the current generation of XJ design and offers a unique and bold blend of performance, technology and luxury. It represents the ultimate expression of the sedan’s legendary elegance and striking design.
Based on the long-wheelbase, rear-wheel drive Jaguar XJL Supercharged model, and powered by a 470hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8, the XJ Collection features a range of elegant visual enhancements to the sedan’s exterior and unique details to its luxurious cabin. Just 300 examples will be produced and sold only to U.S. customers, making it one of the most exclusive versions of the XJ since the ground-breaking original was revealed in 1968.
A number of distinct interior features and exterior design details deliver enhanced levels of craftsmanship, elevating the iconic luxury the XJ is known for. The new Jaguar XJ Collection is available exclusively in the U.S. starting at $85,0001.
The Jaguar Land Rover stand at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show is located in the Los Angeles Convention Center, located at 1201 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90015. For further information about the Jaguar or Land Rover vehicles on display, visit www.jaguarusa.com and www.landroverusa.com.
