I doubt it is a matter of them not knowing that we want another NAS D90. I'm sure LRNA is well aware of it too.
Simple fact of the matter is that very little about the current D90 is U.S. road legal, and making it U.S. road legal would not only require a lot of time, money and efforts on Tata's end, but it would also pretty much require the new NAS D90 to become a shell of it's former NAS self. While I believe it may still be worth it to us (as in we would probably still accept some modified version of the D90), I highly doubt sales figures in America, year 2008 would make it worth their efforts (shit economy, shit fuel economy, etc).
I remember driving my old D90 around and having tons of people ask me where to buy one, yes, but I am willing to bet 90% of them were just creating conversation. Plus... look at the direction that LR is taking. Range Rover Sport? I mean, really? While it is a nice car, it's not quite the LR we know and love.
because six cylinders will take us farther than any president
