Proven off-road capabilities; lots of the latest technology; very luxurious interior
The Land Rover Range Rover comes in four trims: HSE, HSE Lux, Supercharged and for this year only, the Autobiography Black limited edition. The HSE models features a naturally aspirated aluminum 5.0L V8 that makes 375 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. The Supercharged version of the same engine will do 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque. The Range Rover uses a 6-speed automatic transmission and permanent 4-wheel drive with Electronic Traction Control for optimum handling on the commute or off the trail.
The computer-controlled electronic suspension has several available modes-- the suspension can be lowered for improved passenger and cargo access or raised for improved off-road ability. The Terrain Response system works with the engine, transmission, differential, suspension and handling systems to maximize control. The Range Rover has five settings that can be selected by the driver for different terrain types. The General setting will cover almost all everyday driving, but Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, Sand, and Rock Crawl settings are available when the going gets tough.
If the going gets very tough, the Range Rover uses anti-lock brakes, electronic brake distribution, emergency brake assist, stability control, understeer control, rear brake boost, cornering brake control, roll stability control, hill descent control and gradient release control to help the driver pilot the vehicle. Nine airbags are present, including one for the driver's knee. A collapsible steering column and an inertia switch that unlocks the doors, turns on the hazard lights and shuts off the fuel pump reduces the risk for injury in the event of a collision.
While you're feeling so safe, you might as well enjoy it. The Range Rover comes with a 14- speaker sound system, a navigation system, leather-wrapped multifunction, heated steering wheel and leather heated front and rear seats. The HSE Lux steps it up with power-folding, auto-dimming electric mirrors and perforated leather seats with heating and cooling functions, among other upgrades. The Supercharged Range Rover has the far more powerful engine but also blind spot monitoring and a rain sensor.
The Autobiography edition has the best of everything, including the supercharged engine and all of the impressive technology standard on the Supercharged Range Rover. Leather lines the entire cabin, including around the center vents and on the bindings of the floor mats. Even the headliner is leather. This whole scheme is available in additional colors, including dual-tone combinations.
For 2011, the Range Rover gets further upgrades to its already impressive Terrain Response system with the addition of Hill Start Assist and Gradient Acceleration Control. There were a few updates to the exterior styling and the options list now includes a 19-speaker harman/kardon sound system and reclining rear seats. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Range Rover, a limited Autobiography Black edition will be available.
Range Rover thinks of itself as the last word in luxury, it could also be the last word in true off-road capability -- a combination not often found in the SUV market. Its Sand Launch Control and Rock Crawl Program are impressive engine control systems, while the leather interior with wood trim is one of the most best-regarded in the segment.
