This sport utility pioneered the luxury-SUV trend three decades ago. The current model comes with a host of high-end amenities, plenty of aromatic leather, and real-wood trim. A fully redesigned 2003 Range Rover is due this summer. Developed under the stewardship of former corporate parent BMW and equipped with a BMW-built V8, it promises improved performance and mechanical refinement. It will also feature a fully independent height-adjustable suspension, a contemporary steering setup, stability control, and an assortment of high-tech features. Interior details are comparable to those found in similarly priced luxury sedans.
