LAS VEGAS -- Police are searching for a black Range Rover SUV from which gunshots rang out along the city's famed Strip early Thursday morning, sending a Maserati crashing into a taxi and leaving three dead. The incident shut down traffic along some of the most famous real estate in the resort city, at Flamingo and Las Vegas boulevards, an intersection surrounded by top casino hotels including the Bellagio, Caesars Palace and Bally's. Police said the Range Rover had paper dealer plates, dark tinted windows and black rims.

Think of mid-size luxury SUVs as a stable of thoroughbreds. Porsche has its Cayenne, Mercedes-Benz its ML and GL, and Audi its Q7. The Japanese brands have their X models: Acura's MDX, Lexus' GX and Infiniti's QX60. For 2014, two redesigned purebreds join the mix: BMW's third-generation X5, and Land Rover's second-generation Range Rover Sport. Each of the newcomers approaches this competitive segment - where prices range from $50,000 to $90,000 - with a different philosophy.

The storied British brands Jaguar and Land Rover brought three new premium vehicles to the Los Angeles Auto Show, hoping to make a splash in its most important regional market. Now one company under the name Jaguar Land Rover, the automaker launched a redesigned Range Rover, F-Type two-seat convertible and the XFR-S, a new premium sedan that will sell only about 100 copies in the U.S. during the 2014 model year. Company executives describe the L.A. show as critical to their growth strategy, calling it ground zero for their “modern day British invasion.” PHOTOS: Highlights from the 2012 L.A.

Every shopper's worst nightmare played out in an upscale New Jersey mall over the weekend, turning the joyful Christmas season to ashes for the family of a pair of young lawyers who will gather Wednesday for a funeral.  Carjackers approached Dustin Friedland and his wife, Jamie, in the parking area at the Mall at Short Hills and opened fire. Dustin was gravely wounded and left to die by his assailants, who drove off in his late-model silver Range Rover which was recovered nearby in Newark - a scant 15 minutes away by vehicle but more than a lifetime away in wealth.

Next week, their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of York will make several Los Angeles appearances in which their elegant backdrop will be a ruck of Range Rovers built for moor and motorway. Andrew and Fergie will be polite, patriotic, but not that impressed with the cars. Because mother, Queen Elizabeth, has owned a Range Rover for years. So has brother Charles. And father Philip.

Some singers can't wait to find their vocal niche. British soprano Judith Howarth has been looking for 20 years and is content to continue waiting to spot hers.

ENGLAND. A small, wind-blown country off the coast of Europe. A land of inscrutable dentistry, inedible food and sports figures in tiny pants. Aside from Shakespeare, the Industrial Revolution and Radiohead, what has England ever done for you? Well, England invented the sport utility vehicle, which should be of at least some interest to about half of you -- the half who, statistically speaking, own SUVs.

Kia is recalling nearly 80,000 Sedona minivans to fix a part of the suspension that can corrode over time and may break. The recall affects 79,867 Sedona models from the 2006 to 2012 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. After prolonged exposure to road salt used to melt snow and ice, the front lower control arm of the suspension can corrode and possibly break, the agency said in a statement. “A broken control arm can result in the loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash,” the NHTSA said.

That's the suggestion buried within this item from Reuters. The item reports that Peugeot closed its assembly plant in Nigeria some years ago, and that " Africa's growing middle-class" has shifted out of Peugeot sedans and into Toyota Land Cruisers as status symbols. If this is so, it's proper to mark the end of an era. To old hands in East, South and West Africa, the Peugeot 504 was a familiar sight on highways, byways, dirt roads and mud flats. Our family acquired one shortly after arriving in Nairobi in 1988, and it served us for nearly five years, surviving indescribably potholed roads and one broadsiding by a couple of joyriders from Kenya President Moi's personal motor escort.

Honda Motor Co. has announced it is voluntarily recalling more than 344,000 Odyssey minivans to correct a problem with the vehicles' stability control software. The recall affects 344,187 Odyssey vans from the 2007 and 2008 model years. In certain circumstances, an error in the software can prevent the system from calibrating correctly, leading to pressure building up in the braking system, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. If pressure builds to a certain point, “the vehicle may suddenly and unexpectedly brake hard, and without illuminating the brake lights, increasing the risk of a crash from behind,” the NHTSA said.

British cars have always had a particular flair, distinct from the rest of the industry. They're also famous for making mechanics rich and owners poor. For Jaguar Land Rover to make headway in the U.S. market, it will have to capitalize on the former and fix the latter. The automaker, a merger of two storied British brands under new Indian ownership, displayed that flair Wednesday at the Los Angeles Auto Show, introducing two spiffy new Jaguars and a redesigned Range Rover. Company executives describe the L.A. show as crucial to their growth strategy, calling it ground zero for their "modern day British invasion.

A grand jury in New York has been given an extension to act on the wild chase that resulted in the beating of an SUV driver and serious injuries to a motorcyclist, officials said Friday. Christopher Cruz, the only person to be charged in the incident, briefly made a return appearance in court on Friday. It had been expected that the grand jury would report on the same day, but prosecutors said further action will be delayed until Oct. 24 to allow more time for investigation. There have been reports in the New York media that some of the motorcyclists involved in the chase up Manhattan's West Side and the beating of the driver of the black Range Rover have been identified.

The motorcyclist who was severely injured Sunday during a confrontation on Manhattan's West Side Highway is a devoted family man who was trying to defuse the situation, his family and lawyer said Friday. Edwin Mieses Jr., 32, sustained back and leg injuries when an SUV ran over him after a group of motorcyclists surrounded the black Range Rover. The vehicle's driver fled, and the motorist was later beaten by other bikers. One person has been charged in the incident, which is being examined by a Manhattan grand jury.
