Land Rover LR3 voted “SUV of Texas”

Dallas, Texas – The Land Rover LR3 was officially named “SUV of Texas” by the Texas
Auto Writer’s Association (TAWA) on Tuesday. The award was presented to Richard
Beattie, executive vice president, Land Rover North America at ceremonies held in
DeSoto, Texas.

This year, a significant number of new trucks and SUV’s were evaluated by the
members of the TAWA organization at the annual Texas Truck Rodeo. The winners were
then recognized for their excellence in a number of categories including value for
price, interior/exterior styling, fuel efficiency and ride quality.

“Nowhere in the country is a dependable, outstanding SUV with uncompromised on- and
off-road ability such a part of life than in the great state of Texas,” said
Beattie. “Being named ‘SUV of Texas’ reaffirms that LR3 can compete in the
ever-growing sport-utility market.”
