Land Rover Range Rover


Current Model
The next-generation 2022 Land Rover Range Rover continues its legacy of regal, ultra-luxury SUV that pushes boundaries, with new tech and an elegant design. The Range Rover will be offered in four-, five-, and seven-seat configurations, marking the first time it has been available with a third row.
It launches in the spring with a mild-hybrid inline six and a twin-turbocharged V8, but a plug-in hybrid (with a 62-mile electric only range) and a full-electric version will follow. An all-wheel steering system is standard that can add stability at speed and promises the tightest turning circle of any Land Rover. Special SV versions add further opulence. Standard active safety equipment includes FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, and LKA.

2013 Redesign Year
An impressive redesign of the Range Rover brought an eight-speed automatic transmission along with supercharged V6 and V8 engines delivering immediate thrust. Combined with an aluminum unibody, fuel economy increased considerably.
We averaged 17 mpg with the base V6. While not exactly stellar, this is better than most of the class. Handling is responsive and secure, but not sporty. However, ride quality is unsurpassed, as the suspension system swallows up nearly every bump. Further, off-road ability remains legendary. Tasteful wood, leather and chrome trim, in concert with very comfortable and supportive seats maintain the Range Rover’s reputation for luxury. However, some of the controls are dated, including the touchscreen infotainment system. Safety features such as blind spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, and lane-departure warning are options -- despite the high price of entry. 2016 models offer a 254-hp, 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6; upgrades to the infotainment system; and an available hands-free tailgate opening system. 2018 brings an updated exterior, infotainment system, and a SVAutobiography Dynamic version with a 557-hp supercharged V8. Updates for 2019 include a level 2 partial automation as an option as well as a P400e plug-in hybrid version. Other new features include Android Auto and Apple Carplay compatibility. Changes for 2020 include a new 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder gasoline engine, which comes with a mild hybrid system, producing between 355- and 395-hp.

2003-2012
2003 Redesign Year
The upscale Range Rover pioneered the luxury-SUV concept, always featuring luxury-car amenities, but complicated and inscrutable controls. Its height-adjusting air suspension can raise or lower the body for different on- and off-road conditions.
An extensive 2003 redesign brought much-improved ride, handling, and refinement. Excellent BMW engines were used until 2006, when the Range Rover switched to a Jaguar V8. After 2009, a 375-hp 5.0-liter V8 was standard with a 510-hp supercharged version optional. Off-road capabilities remained first-rate.

1995-2002
This upscale SUV comes with all sorts of luxury-car amenities, power everything, and leather galore, as well as a number of advanced engineering features such as a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system and air suspension. When you park, the body can lower itself to ease access.
Once under way, it rises again. It rises still more when you select Low Range, the better to clear off-road obstructions. The Range Rover rode comfortably for an SUV and handled adequately, though it didn't accelerate briskly-even with its husky V8. Don't expect much in the way of fuel economy.
