Here is a link to the new 2013 Range Rover review that Jalopnik did last week:
There is an interesting statement toward the beginning of the story that caught my eye:
"Land Rover said their hardcore customers, whom they call "SuperLoyalists" (I'm not joking) didn't want them to screw with the car too much, so they didn't. Think of the new design as having evolved the same way the 911 has. It's an attractive, streamlined update of a well-recognized icon that's been around for decades."
So, if Range Rover lovers are "SuperLoyalists", what are we? I have meet a lot of Defender owners and some if you guys are more obsessed with Defenders than a crackhead is about cocaine. SO, if they don't want to upset the masses, why the hell did they attempt to bring us the DC100? Why would they even try to mess with the Defender which I think we all could say has a much better chance of getting Land Rover to their lofty sales goals than the big boy Range Rover. Keep it cheap, easy to work on, and no frills, and I think you could outsell the Rangie ten times over...
