Land Rover can do it all with ease

In almost all African safari films we see the Land Rover Range Rover vehicles crossing the plains and streambeds of wild Africa terrain.
Made in England for decades, the Land Rover organization is now owned by Tata Motors of India. Tata is a huge auto, bus and truck manufacturer in India with enough economic power to purchase Land Rover and Jaguar from the Ford Motor Company in July 2008.
Tata has suffered recently with European and U.S sales slowing but increasing in India and especially strong in The People’s Republic of China.
Main headquarters are in Mumbai, India, where Board Chairman Ratan N. Tata runs the worldwide auto, bus and commericial company. He is famous in India for allowing stray dogs to frequent his office buildings unattended. Tata stock has lagged the market so far in 2013 but has long-term price potential with the quality brand of vehicles manufactured.
The Range Rover is still manufactured in Solihull, England, using UK assembly and engine, and a German transmission.
Quality and durability throughout the Range Rover has a body frame integrated with a hydroformed boxed steel ladder frame and welded steel monosides. The doors sound like bank vaults when they close and passengers feel very safe and secure inside the well-appointed interior highlighted with almond-nutmeg premium leather seats.
Power is abundant with a 375 hp, 5.0L V-8 engine that provides Spartan performance and acceleration. With low gear ratios and choices of normal, sport and manual transmission modes. The stand drive can be adjusted for all road conditions including mountain snow and desert terrains.
Priced at $68,236 with massive electronic accessories and controls for all driving situations, the ride is superb, large 19” by 9” aluminum hubs make for a powerful tire footprint on ice, snow or sand. Four corner electronic air suspension and adjustable four- wheel independent front and rear suspension give an excellent ride under all road conditions. Got kids aboard? There’s a detailed entertainment center, including television for rear seat passengers.
The Baltic blue painted Range Rover is a classic design and very desirable workhorse for males and females who like the outdoors in all types of weather and terrain conditions. It is equally swank at a valet parking social event.
The heated leather steering wheel feels very good on some of the recent blizzard mornings along with the heated rear view mirrors.
This is a vehicle that one could simple reside within. Mr. Tata could haul his hunting dogs to the countryside in style and extreme comfort.
