HI
Does anyone know what, if any, new options will become available MY2020 for the Range Rover SC? I am holding out for the Euro options for the Pixel headlights/Laser high beams

Thanks

2020 packages and such have not been announced. Although the pixel/laser lights have finally been approved for the NAS market I don't see LR jumping to immediately incorporate them.

I spoke to my dealer here in Southern California as my lease (2016 Range Rover) is coming due in August and they stated that I can order MY2020 in March with delivery in June/July. They also said they should have specs on the 2020 in about 4-5 weeks.

Wow, that sounds early. I would love to get a 2020. However, I am concerned about Brexit so I asked my dealer to get the earliest custom order. I asked him in Dec and he got me a build date of Feb 2 and should be here by April 2nd. Brexit is suppose to happen on March 31st unless they extend the deadline. My lease is up in Sept/Oct so I will try to sell the car and get some $ back. Probably not much, but hopefully a min of 5K.

Why are you concerned about Brexit? The Brexit plan was voted down by Parliment in the biggest defeat of all time. Theresa May faced a "no confidence" vote over this entire Brexit mess that has been dragging out over 2 years.

Are you building a MY2020 on Feb 2? I was at the dealer today picking up DEF fluid for my Range and I asked if there are any spec updates and still nothing. My rep also mentioned that there was a training in Las Vegas recently with executives from Land Rover UK and they kept the lid tight on MY2020 specs.

I'm not sure about Brexit, but it is affecting speculation, especially in china. That is Land Rover's largest market and it is down about 50% right now. Coupled with the slowdown of the world economy at large, and multiple car companies, including JLR are laying off people. JLR is laying off close to 5000 employees. They are also moving Discovery production out of the UK to freaking Slovakia...yikes. Tata developed the worlds cheapest automobile and it looks like they are doing everything to save a buck.

JLR has also stated that they are transitioning away from petrol/diesel into electric. Every line will have an electric option (what I read said 2020/2021) and they will be moving to all electric/hybrid.

I can't wait to see what their reliability looks like after these moves in the next few years. All I can say is Yikes.

The Brexit agreement between Britian and the EU was voted down. However, the UK still it planning on leaving the EU on March 31st. They are hoping for an agreement with the EU so trade/borders/etc. are all ironed out before leaving the EU. If not, they do not know if the EU will impose a tarriffs on import/export from the EU. The EU can vote to request and extension to the March 31st deadline, but the EU would then have to approve the deadline. It is a mess. JLR and Aston Martin separately this week made a request to the government not to leave without an agreement in place.

The spec RR would be for 2019. You got me curious on what is new for MY2020. I can't imagine they would change a whole lot. I know they are working on the new redesign schedule to arrive in 2021. I always add and extra year due to delays so maybe 2021 or 2022. LOL

Also, on Feb 19th, the Gov will give Trump a report to see if Import Cars are a National Threat. Depending on the report, Trump has 90 days to impose a Tariff on Import cars/parts from any country except Mexico and Canada since they will be covered under the new trade agreement. Trump has threaten to impose a 25% tariff on cars from China (which is 0 right now), Japan, and Europe. Everybody believes he is using this as leverage, but right now we are paying 2.5% import tax from Europe. He could easily say, alright, no 25% tariff, but lets make it 12.5%. Just lots of uncertainty.

It's definitely a different era now, that for many a car order depends so much on international politics.
Anyway, back on topic, we usually hear about the upcoming MY specs in April/May. '18 and '19 were highly unusual model years.

Agreed.
I am wondering if they are going to try to sell more of the PHEV. My dealer tells me they will only get 1 allocation a month for the RR PHEV. Maybe the RR will get a new inline 6 cylinder engine? I have no news on that, it is just that their contract with Ford for their engines is coming to an end and JLR now has their own inline 4 and 6 cylinder. I heard the 8 cylinder will be sourced from BMW in the next few years.

I ordered my 2019 Full Size Supercharged in mid December and was told that it would be here mid April. The only delays he's expecting to see are for the electric ones. He didn't once mention anything about Brexit delaying anything further..

I don't know how true this is, but if you are right then I agree with YIKES lol!! But I just couldn't see them completely abandoning the gas/diesel options unless they of all car companys want to become full time pioneers in that market

Not to hijack the thread, but I cannot resist any further. That was like the single most ignorant comment, ever. To put the Slovakian car industry in context: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automotive_industry_in_Slovakia

Moving manufacturing (at least a part of it) to a European country is a strategic post-Brexit move by JLR. It also builds on short distance from German suppliers (ever heard of Bosch and the others?) & they took advantage of course various government incentives. To simplify this down to "Tata wants cheap labor" is an alternate reality.

It's somewhat funny that I placed an order for a 2018 announcement day, and the 2020 will be announced when I hit a year of ownership in April.
