Land Rover is thrilled to be celebrating its’ 25th Anniversary in the United States. To commemorate this milestone, Land Rover hosted a special celebration in conjunction with the New York Auto Show.

Celebrities, loyal customers and media at the event, held at The Park in New York’s Chelsea neighbourhood, were the first in New York to interact with the new DC100 expedition version.

After being founded in 1948, the iconic Land Rover Range Rover was officially introduced to the United States 25 years ago this year in 1987. The Range Rover created a new automotive market segment: the luxury sport utility. At the time of its launch in 1987, the $30,850 retail price made it the most expensive vehicle of its type. In the past quarter of a century, the growth and acceptance of the Land Rover brand in the U.S. marks a true product and brand success story. That success is defined by loyal customers, a distinct authentic brand and consistent sales success. More than 575,000 Land Rover vehicles have been sold in North America since 1987 establishing the U.S. as the world’s largest market for Land Rover’s Range Rover SUVs and New York City the largest metro market.
