The Perceived Masterpiece Of Jaguar-Rover Collaboration
Jaguar and Rover's collaboration has been rumored for quite sometime now. In fact, several car critics and aficionados are visualizing the aftermath of the foreseen collaboration. Hopefully, the possible dispersal of the Ford Premier Group will not have an effect on the negotiations.
Jaguar and Land Rover have already established their names in the automotive industry. Hence, the potential collaboration of the two automakers is expected to awestruck the industry. The result is anticipated to be groundbreaking and remarkable.
The expertise of Jaguar in creating aluminum body combined with Rover's reputation will certainly create a striking luxury vehicle. Jaguar is famed for its rivet-bonded aluminum monocoque body design. Said expertise from the automaker can lighten the Rover's vehicles by as much as 1,000 pounds. Hence, by utilizing Jaguar body parts, Rover can build huge luxury sport utility vans without compromising weight and fuel-economy.
According to a reliable source of What Car, the latest Range Rover will be the very first all-alloy monocoque-bodied 4x4 that will be launched in the year 2010. He further added, "There's no decision yet, and we don't have to decide for a couple of years, but it seems a logical step to investigate."
Jaguar technology can cut about 6,000 pounds of the current Range Rover weight. This can be done while preserving its off-road toughness and capabilities. Rover is known for its remarkable off-road performance. Hence, that fact must be augmented in the collaboration. To strip the same will result to a so-so vehicle that will not satisfy enthusiasts. The boost in both the performance and fuel-efficiency aspect of vehicles is also anticipated in said collaboration.
Range Rover Sport and Discovery are due for replacement. Hence, in coming up with replacements, it is advised by experts in the field that the technology from both worlds be merged to produce vehicles that make more sense than its ancestors.
