    Yesterday, as I drove slowly by the local Land Rover dealer here in Southampton, NY and saw the latest offerings, most on artfully created rock piles, I only felt sadness as I know this 2013 LR4 will be my last Land Rover. As the line becomes more and more "aerodynamic" (why??) the traditional box shape that most of us love has been replaced by what looks to me more like an ..... egg. Ford's genius began diluting the brand (Freelander!) and while I'm at it, why must the Evoque be called a Range Rover when its anything but. IMO, its been one mistake after another. I've owned nothing but Land Rover's for 23 years, 3 Ranger Rovers and now (my favorite) an LR4. Yup ... only sadness.

    Let's not get carried away. i mean... I largely agree with some of the sentiment here.. but those friggen chevys have absolutely no soul what so ever.

    I don't think that is a new D5 as the licence plate is properly centered on the liftback tailgate.

    Still think the D5 looks like a Durango out in town. Same lines but more flare.

    And there is the underlying issue - it can be mistaken for so many more “pedestrian” vehicles. There was no mistaking all prior Discos as anything but a Land Rover.

    I love that my LR is so easy to find in parking lots. My roof and rack always pop up against the surrounding vehicles.

    All of my neighbors and people around town know me, because you wont find a rig like mine anywhere else in the area (like... Iowa)... But I feel bad because they drive around in soul suckingly common and boring vehicles that you literally see every 30 seconds on the road. It is always too late to wave by the time I identify them. I have to resort to memorizing license plates.
