AutoComplete: The $300,000 Range Rover SV Coupe is dead
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
Last year at Geneva, Land Rover made a big deal out of its hyper-luxurious two door Range Rover SV coupe concept.
It was gonna have everything, including a nearly $300,000 price tag.
But since it debuted, Land Rover has gone radio silent on the project until now.
The folks at JLR just confirmed that the SV Coupe won't going into production, and that will instead use those resources for projects that will, I don't know, make them money.
If you've been Been wondering where the RAM 3500 was?
It's been nowhere, thanks to the recent government shutdown.
See, FCA wasn't able to get EPA certification for the vehicle through the system before the shutdown happened, and as such, the whole thing has been sitting around twiddling it proverbial thumbs.
Now that the government is back in biz though, the truck sailed through and we just have to wait until the white walkers decide to go back north of the wall and take the polar vortex with them.
Sirius XM satellite radio is awesome, but for many manufacturers, and we're looking at you here, Germany, getting it on your brand new ride is an optional extra.
Toyota doesn't think that should be the case, though.
So starting in the fall of 2019, it will come as standard equipment on all 2020 models.
So pop open that sparkling cider and crank up the 40s Junction, because it's about to get lit.
