The original luxury SUV, the Land Rover Range Rover represents the best the brand has to offer in terms of craftsmanship and sheer prestige. Along with abundant luxuries, you get indomitable off-road performance and a certain old-world charm that its competitors have yet to duplicate.
What's New for 2014
In search of higher efficiency, Land Rover has replaced last year’s base V8 with a 340-horsepower supercharged 3-liter V6 with auto stop/start technology. The carryover supercharged V8 gains an auto stop/start feature of its own. LED headlamps are now standard across the board.
Choosing Your Land Rover Range Rover
Every Range Rover features four-wheel drive with low range and Land Rover’s Terrain Response system, which optimizes traction for five driver-selected road (or trail) conditions. The five-passenger interior is festooned with fine wood and leather as only the British can do.
The Range Rover is offered in four trim levels:
A long-wheelbase L model is being prepped for a mid-year introduction. Available in Supercharged or Autobiography trim, the L will provide 6 extra inches of rear legroom along with power window blinds and additional seating configurations.
Our choice is an HSE, but we won't blame anyone who wants an even fancier Range Rover.
