Heard the same thing. Thats fine by me. Hope they discontinue it after I get my orderI was at my dealer today. Apparently Land Rover was expecting a 40% take rate on the 3rd Row Seat Option and are only getting about 5%. At that rate, it may not be a lasting option unless they just need to say they have 7 Seat capacity.
You do not get a full size spare. there is minimal storage but I didnt have much storage behind the 3rd row of my Tahoe either. The only cars I've see that have decent space behind the 3rd row are the XL Tahoe / Yukon / Excalades. Otherwise its pretty much a 1 to 1 trade on people in the 3rd row and storageWhat kind of storage room are you seeing with the 3rd row up? My LR4 has enough room for maybe two bags of groceries. (trying to compare - Pic would be awesome). Does the 3rd row limit the size of the spare tire?
but many dealers here in Europe and in middle east also, talking about 3rd row seat as option in the future in the new Long-Based RR that will be announced in Q3 - Q4 2014.....A third row in the full size Range Rover is never going to happen, Land Rover has been quite clear about that in the past.
thanks..The LWB Range Rover was unveiled late last year, right here in Los Angeles, and can already be ordered... With limo-like seats in the back. No third row, not even as an option. They are going after owners who like to be driven around by a chaffeur, as an alternative to long wheelbase BMWs, Benzes, Bentleys, etc (the price is right up there, too.) They obviously aren't targeting rich soccer moms needing 7 seats.
