2019 Range Rovers Will Be Easier to Drive in Water

  2019 Range Rovers Will Be Easier to Drive in Water The real big news about the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport is the introduction of the P400e plug-in hybrid trim, which can apparently drive 31 miles on its battery alone. Both SUVs get a few other little updates for the new model year but a water wading depth sensor sounds like the most fun. Range Rovers, even the hybrid, can drive through almost three feet of standing water according to Land Rover. At least, as long as there’s traction below the surface.

Two of the reasons for the growing popularity of SUVs and crossovers are the big rear cargo area and taller ride height. A new study suggests that while that big hatch might be great for your doggo, the extra height might not be.

The study, published in the UK's Veterinary Record, measured the force experienced by dogs jumping out of the back of a simulated vehicle cargo area. Researchers took 15 healthy adult dogs of 14 different breeds and then had them jump from three heights. The heights simulated three common cargo area heights. They measured the forces the dogs experienced on their forelimbs as well as how the force was exerted.

Two of the reasons for the growing popularity of SUVs and crossovers are the big rear cargo area and taller ride height. Two of The main concern for Zanardi is not whether he can be competitive behind the wheel (he’ s proven time and again since the crash that he can still drive quickly) but

The dogs in the test covered nine breeds and one mixed, ranging from 13.8 to 33.2 kg. They jumped from a platform set at 55 cm, then 65 cm and finally 75 cm. The researchers said that the heights used covered common cargo floor heights. Not surprisingly, the higher heights increased the stresses on the dogs' front legs.

Jumping from the highest height increased ground pressure roughly 25 percent compared with the lowest height. That suggests a greater chance of injury in those leaps. According to the paper, "results suggest that allowing dogs to jump from bigger cars with a higher boot sill may result in augmented levels of loading on anatomical structures."

One other thing the study noted was that many cargo areas aren't completely flat like the plate used in the test. If the dog has to jump up and over the hatch opening, it raises the height of the fall and shortens the landing distance. This could increase the stresses and chance of injury.

Who owns the very first Land Rover?

  Who owns the very first Land Rover? Following a near-secretive unveiling at the prestigious Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall back in February, Land Rover chassis 860001 – the very first production Land Rover – has drawn worldwide interest and all manner of questions. Where has it hidden away all this time? Why is it in such a condition? When was it last on the road? All those answers can be found here. Yet, one question has been unconfirmed – just who bought and now owns chassis 860001?You may have heard of INEOS, a privately owned multinational chemicals company headquartered in London, as CEO and founder Jim Ratcliffe has not only been declared Britain’s richest man but also waged war with Land Rover over righ

The authors of the paper said that more research is needed for a definitive link between jumping down and front leg injury, but said that "this study provides the first objective evidence to support the commonplace belief that allowing dogs to repeatedly jump clear from vehicles with high boot compartments may be inadvisable."

If you want to keep Rover's jumps to a minimum, and he's too big to lift safely, ramps are available for many vehicles that can let them walk down instead of jumping.
