The 2012 Range Rover Vogue consolidates its position as the world’s most luxurious SUV with a host of style changes and feature upgrades, including new option packs for both the Vogue and Autobiography models.


"The Range Rover Vogue always has been and remains the definitive, luxury SUV and one whose off-road performance matches its comfort levels and performance. New equipment levels, revised styling and generously specified option packs make it the one to beat in 2012," says John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.


The Range Rover Vogue exterior has been enhanced for 2012 with detail styling changes. Headlamp and tail lamp back plates are now finished in gloss black, while the front grille surround is finished in Narvik Black. Door handles and side vents match the body colour to create a modern, integrated look and new 20" V spoke alloy wheels finished in mid silver sporting a Range Rover branded centre cap, round off the changes to the exterior.


The Grand Black wood veneers on the 2012 Range Rover Vogue now have a crisp inlay which reads ‘Range Rover’. Autobiography veneers are available in a choice of Burr Maple Prussian Blue, Anthracite Lined Oak or Ash Burl.


The Range Rover Vogue model offers a highly distinctive new look with unique tailgate badging, reflecting the customer's choice of either the Vogue Silver Pack or Vogue Black Pack. Both derivatives include Blind Spot Monitoring, Surround Camera System, Automatic High Beam Assist, Illuminated Sill Tread plates and an 8-inch Dual View infotainment screen – allowing the driver to view the navigation display whilst the passenger can relax watching a video.


Additionally, the Vogue Black Pack offers Grand Black Lacquer Veneer and half wood leather steering wheel

The Range Rover Vogue and Autobiography engine line-up remains unchanged for 2012.


The powerful 4.4 LR-TDV8 – specifically designed for the Range Rover – develops 230kW at 4,000rpm and 700Nm torque at between 1,500rpm and 3,000rpm. With combined fuel consumption of 9.4l/100km, this made it one of the most powerful and economical diesels in the world at its introduction in 2011. Combined with the super-efficient ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission it returns CO2 emissions of just 253g/km.


The Supercharged LR-V8 remains one of the most uncompromisingly powerful and efficient petrol engines in its class, producing 375kW at between 6,000rpm and 6,500rpm with torque of 625Nm from 2500rpm-5500rpm. This immense performance, allows the Supercharged Range Rover Vogue to accelerate from 0-100kph in a mere 6.2 seconds. Now with the addition of an additional model, Supercharged performance is now more attainable.


The naturally aspirated LR-V8 is one of the most refined engines of its type, combining a silky smooth power delivery with unparalleled efficiency. Power output is 276kW at 6,500rpm with torque of 510Nm at 3,500rpm, reaching 100kph from rest in just 7.2 seconds.


Deliveries of 12MY Range Rover Vogue and Autobiography will commence from October. Pricing commences at $160,500 for the Vogue 4.4L `TDV8.
