More models, price and spec changes for '99 Range Rovers

LAND Rover has announced the Range Rover 1999 line-up is to be expanded with two new models in the range, one of which marks a price reduction and better spec for a mid-range model and the other becomes the new top of the range choice. This comes only days after the Rover Group revealed production would halt for one week on the Range Rover to allow for a fall-off in demand.

Two new models, the County and the Vogue special editions, are now available. Standard equipment includes automatic climate control and cruise control, new passenger, driver and side airbags, four-channel ABS, plus four-wheel electronic traction control with sports mode electronic selection. The County SE is available with either the 2.5-litre six cylinder turbocharged diesel or 4.0-litre V8 petrol engines.

Despite having standard extras such as leather seats, gearshift, handbrake, steering wheel and door-pulls and 16in alloy wheels over the current SE, the on-the-road price is £42,595 - a £105 drop in price on the standard mid-ranged SE at £42,700. The Vogue SE at £54,495 OTR leads the way as the new top of the range vehicle with extra specification including an electric heated front windscreen, electric sunroof, CD autochanger, electrically adjustable driver's seat and mirror memory facilities. It has 18in alloy wheels and is powered by a 4.6-litre V8. The standard 4.6 HSE is £51,165 OTR.
