Attention, Des Moines Land Rover owners! Are you looking to drop some weight this year?  We have some  great news for you!

The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover is the first all-aluminum SUV. And, because of this, it is 700 lbs. lighter.  Changes in the auto industry have become more focused around increasing fuel economy. The government has placed regulations on the weight of vehicles on the road and has pushed to make all vehicles more fuel-efficient, and Land Rover has answered that challenge.

The size of the 2013 Range Rover has not changed, which has raised consumer curiosity. The 5.0-liter V8 or eight-speed automatic transmission will offer an EPA-rated 14 mpg. It also offers rear-passenger leg room of an additional 4.7 inches.

Before you purchase your new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover, have the team at Beckley Imports take a look. They can do a pre-purchase inspection. Let the European import professionals save you time and money before you buy. We can’t wait to see your Range Rover.

If you are interested in technology, then mbrace will be a friend to you, just like your smartphone. Motor Trend wrote a great blog about this fascinating technology last year and you can view the specifics of mbrace here. The car’s human-machine-interface COMAND allows you to log into a secure website and do almost everything you may need. From the website, you can lock or unlock your doors, program routes for commuting, enter places you visit often, including your home. Your car can even help you diagnose car problems.

Most Mercedes have the mbrace hardware as a standard or optional feature. If your Mercedes has a digital telematics box, you can enjoy the mbrace. The service is roughly $520/year for full concierge service or a basic package for $280/year.

Make sure to check with the team at Beckley Imports if you have any questions about this technology. They can help you determine if you are ready to sign up for mbrace, or if there are additional upgrades needed. Let technology make your life easier. With these tools from Mercedes-Benz, communicating with your car can be easy.
