Land Rover has previously shown off the new 2013 Range Rover, its top-of-the-line SUV, in Europe only. Land Rover has now gone official with the unveiling the event for the United States. The official US unveil for the high-end SUV was conducted at Stone Mansion in New Jersey.

Along with the official US unveil came the official US pricing for the SUV. The 2013 Range Rover will start at $83,500. We already know most of the details of the 2013 Range Rover, but I'll run down all the important details again. The 2013 Range Rover went on a diet courtesy of an all aluminum unibody structure that is lighter and stronger than ever before.

Copious use of aluminum in the SUV allowed the new Range Rover to save about 700 pounds of weight compared to the previous generation. While the vehicle is lighter it has also been developed from the ground up to be an exceptionally capable off-road vehicle. The US version of the Range Rover will use a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine.

The Range Rover starts at $83,500, and a high-end Autobiography version of the SUV will sell for $130,950. The new Range Rover also gets special suspension for improved ride comfort and gains 4.7-inches of legroom in the backseat compared to previous models. The new SUV also gets Land Rover's new Terrain Response 2 Auto system that automatically selects the appropriate driving mode for the conditions.
