2017 Land Rover Range Rover

Buyer's Guide

Land Rover's flagship Range Rover is a rolling demonstration of how opulent and capable a sport utility vehicle can be. Refined, comfortable, and offering jaw-dropping performance on and off the road, it's elevated the standard of what a modern luxury vehicle can be. For 2017, the Range Rover line has been upgraded to fend off the recently updated Lexus LX, the new Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and perhaps the Range Rover's biggest threat - the Bentley Bentayga.

New this year to the Range Rover lineup is the SVAutobiography Dynamic trim. It combines the finest luxury trappings and equipment with a greater emphasis on on-road performance.

While the SVAutobiography Dynamic wasn't developed to excel on the racetrack like the Range Rover Sport SVR, it receives a sport-tuned air suspension that is set 8 mm lower, standard active anti-roll bars, adaptive dampers, and a choice of 21- and 22-inch alloy wheels. Red-finish Brembo brakes are standard, as are unique fascias, and exterior details finished in Graphite Atlas. On the inside, the trim is distinguished by its Grand Black veneer interior trim, red accents, and anodized red metal paddles for manual shifting. The SVAutobiography Dynamic is powered by the top-of-the-line 550-hp supercharged V8 engine.

Also new this year are a host of technology upgrades that aim to keep the Range Rover at the cutting edge of technology. Standard on all models is the latest version of the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, which features an improved graphics engine and a giant 10.2-inch high-resolution touchscreen. The system also features full integration with the InControl Remote app, which allows owners to heat and cool their Range Rover via their smartphone. InControl does not feature Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, but it does feature in-car Wi-Fi.

Those who frequently venture off the beaten path are sure to make use of the new All-Terrain Info Centre, which shows information about the vehicle's drivetrain and off-road features on the centre stack, as well as the new Low Traction Launch, a sort of launch control for slippery conditions.

Other tech upgrades include a new Advanced Tow Assist which aims to take the stress out of reversing a trailer, plus a new Intelligent Speed Limiter, which automatically adjusts the speed limiter function based on traffic signs.

The Range Rover is available in standard and long-wheelbase configuration, depending on trim level. The latter offers 186 mm more rear legroom than the standard model, and can be outfitted with limousine-style Executive Class rear power-adjustable bucket seats, a flow-through console with integrated champagne cooler, and retractable trays. Other available features of note include a 29-speaker 1700-watt Meridian sound system, sliding wood and aluminum cargo bay floor, and knurled metal cabin accents.

The entry level model, the HSE, is exclusively available in standard wheelbase, and comes powered by a 3.0-litre turbodiesel V6 engine that develops 254 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque.

The Range Rover Supercharged, Autobiography, and SVAutobiography all feature a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 in varying states of tune. The Supercharged and standard Autobiography produce 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque, while the SVAutobiography and SVAutobiography Dynamic develop 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque.

Both gas and diesel engines feature an eight-speed automatic transmission and one of the world's most capable four-wheel drive systems.

Pricing for the Range Rover starts at $111,500 for the Td6 HSE, with the top-of-the-line SVAutobiography Long Wheelbase selling for a cool $225,000.

2012 Land Rover Range Rover

Trim: RANGE ROVER SUPERCHARGED

Monster - in ever aspect
Very very fast... 510 hp! not the most economical engine, but i didnt buy it to get the civic economy. Interiors are comfortable and very nice.

Range Rover designers, if you are reading this, u cheaped out on the navigation system. It is so slow... that's certainly needs to be upgraded...

But excellent design, i love this machine...

2005 Land Rover Range Rover

by Philip_P on 10-15-2012
Surprisingly responsive beast
I didn't think this huge vehicle would be a high performance ride. Surprisingly responsive acceleration and steering.
I affectionately describe this SUV as my "tank' and I am constantly amazed by the acceleration.
Otherwise in terms of comfort/appointments the only thing this vehicle lacks is a butler!
Sadly, it's a huge gas guzzler.

2010 Land Rover Range Rover

Trim: HSE
by Philjharvey on 10-12-2012
The Best Car i Ever Owned
My Range Rover was a 2010 model; it was an ex demonstrator vehicle that was 6 months old when I took ownership. I had the vehicle for 2 years and loved it, it really was the best car I have owned. The interior of the Range Rover is hard to be beaten; you really are driving in a world of luxury. As my car was an ex demonstrators, it did have a few extra features, however the Range Rover does come with an array of gadgets and electrical features that really makes life behind the wheel very special indeed. The driving position of the Range Rover is superb, and the electric seat adjustments can easily be changed for up to 5 individuals with presets.
The Range Rover is not light on gas!, the performance is wonderful both on the Highway and off. The 4x4 off road handling is surprisingly easy to master with the Ranger Rover making light work of pretty tough terrain. Most of the time was spent on the highway, and was always a pleasure making long road trips a breeze.
So yes the Range Rover is a truly wonderful vehicle, however it is not for the faint hearted as the servicing bills and general cost of ownership is not cheap and will require some serious investment. The gas tank is 100lts, and this will take you about 500-600km’s (if driving responsibly) Servicing is expensive at a Land Rover Dealer, however prices can vary depending on city. Mostly I had issues with electrical faults, these were more annoying than causing real issue, however the cost of repair (outside of warranty) was again very expensive, and sometimes hard to resolve if not an experienced Range Rover mechanic.
So in summary, the Range Rover is by far the best car I have ever owned, it was also the most expensive! The key testimony is – would I ever buy another one, to that the answer is absolutely yes!
