Getting Your Land Rover Ready For The Winter

new Land Rover, Range Rover dealer, Land Rover Frisco, Frisco, Texas Winter is almost upon us and while safety is an important consideration all year long, there are certainly some auto maintenance jobs and safety checks that are specific to winter driving that are a good idea to check into before you are knee deep in the season.  To be sure you don’t end up a road popsicle or end up with your holiday budget on ice thanks to unexpected repairs, have your Land Rover or Range Rover looked at by our expert mechanics here at Land Rover Frisco in Frisco, Texas, so that you won’t be left out in the freezing cold this season.  

Your antifreeze is an essential part of your car’s winter protection. Your car contains a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze. Make sure the level is full and the mixture is close to 50/50.  Many auto service stations and repair centers will check this mixture for free, or you can buy a tester for around $5.

The last line of defense between you and a guard rail or tree are your tires. With treacherous and icy road conditions, you want to make sure you have good tread to ensure proper traction so you don’t go sliding all over the roads.  The National Highway Transportation Safety Board says you need at least 2/32″ of depth to be safe.  Also be sure to check your tire pressure.  Cold weather can drastically lower the pressure in your tires so be sure to check the pressure regularly and pump them up when needed.

Check the condition of wiper blades and consider upgrading to winter/snow blades. Always “park” your blades before turning off the vehicle to minimize chances of sticking to the glass.  Better yet, lift blades off the glass overnight.  Scrape ice and snow from the roof in addition to every window, mirror and light. Never splash hot water on glass to melt ice as it can crack.  Lube door locks and latches and coat weather stripping with silicone spray to help keep doors from freezing shut. 

The winters can be highly unpredictable here in Texas, so make sure you and your vehicle are well prepared for the roads ahead.   Should you have any questions or concerns regarding how to properly ready you car and yourself for the winter, then give us a call here Land Rover Frisco in Frisco, Texas and we will happily assist you.  And while you are on the phone with us, be sure to inquire about our new lineup of Land Rovers and Range Rovers.  Happy and safe driving out there!

The 2012 Range Rover Evoque

2012 Range Rover Evoque

The 2012 Range Rover Evoque is in stock at Land Rover of Frisco it has been called the ‘2012 SUV of the Year’, and for good reason.

The new 2012 Range Rover Evoque is a different kind of Land Rover, a compact, crossover aimed at urbanites who want luxury, sport-utility usefulness, and reasonable fuel economy in a compact package. The new Evoque wraps it all in a refreshingly different exterior design. Its width and low roofline contributes to the Evoque’s athletic look and aggressive stance. Combined with a sophisticated full-time four-wheel drive system, good ground clearance, and a short wheelbase, the Evoque can tackle some pretty tough off-road terrain. That sustains Land Rover’s tradition of exceptional go-anywhere proficiency, an area of performance that is absent in the pedigrees of competitors, which have no off-road pretensions whatsoever.

The Evoque delivers cargo versatility with a hatchback design. Fold the rear seatbacks forward and cargo capacity expands exponentially, the interior also measures up well in terms of roominess for four passengers. The Evoque’s interior appointments are arguably more upscale than the others in its class, even in base trim. That’s why Land Rover applied its upscale Range Rover badge to the model. The Evoque’s tidy dimensions pay off with low curb weight, which adds up to respectable fuel economy ratings: 18 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, according to the EPA. Distinctively styled and equipped with a luxurious interior, the three- or five-door Evoque is intended to boldly go where Range Rover has never gone before.

Standard Equipment

The base “Pure” trim includes a long list of features including keyless entry and engine start, power-adjustable leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power tailgate, 19-inch alloy wheels and an 11-speaker audio system with an eight-inch touchscreen. On the dynamic side, all Evoques feature hill-hold and Hill Descent Control along with Land Rover’s terrain response system featuring unique driving modes for sand, mud and snow. Standard safety features include stability and traction controls, roll stability control, Trailer Stability Assist (to help when towing), and six airbags.

Optional Equipment

Options are grouped into three trim levels. The Pure Premium trim adds a five-camera surround-view system, navigation, adaptive xenon headlights and a 17-speaker audio system. From there buyers can move up to either the sporty Dynamic Premium or the luxurious Prestige Premium trims, each offering a variety of interior and exterior upgrades. Lastly, the optional Adaptive Dynamics system serves to improve ride and handling by way of magneto-rheological dampers that continually adjust their firmness.
