Lvà Rover is launching three special editions of the Range Rover this year, the first being the Fifty Edition that celebrates the 50thanniversary of the flagship SUV. Only 1970 (naturally) examples will be produced, all based on the luxurious Autobiography trlặng cấp độ but featuring unique exterior design features & 50thAnniversary badging. The Westminster Edition is based on the HSE tryên cấp độ & won"t be as limited in number.

Pricing & Which One to Buy

The new Westminster Edition Model seems lớn represent a good value even though it starts with a six-figure price. We"d also suggest upgrading khổng lồ the long-wheelbase mã sản phẩm for an additional $14,000 because it not only offers extra rear-seat legroom, but its proportions are slightly more elegant. It also happens to lớn live in the middle range between the lower-over base Mã Sản Phẩm and the ridiculously pricey SV Autobiography. Land Rover only fits a V-8 engine lớn the longer models, but that"s the engine we"d prefer anyway. In addition to the Westminster"s features listed above, buyers can expect three-zone automatic climate control, a 10.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, 21-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, & Windsor leather seat upholstery.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Range Rover has four basic powertrain lineups, each with its own mix of strengths and weaknesses: Entry-màn chơi models are powered by a turbocharged inline-six that is assisted by a small electric motor for a mild-hybrid thiết lập, while top-of-the-line models feature a raucous supercharged V-8. A diesel V-6 is also available as is a plug-in hybrid. Every Range Rover comes standard with a selectable all-wheel-drive system & an eight-speed automatic transmission. We don"t have recent kiểm tra numbers for a Range Rover with the standard inline-six; the diesel Range Rover we tested in 2016 delivered acceptable but relaxed acceleration times. The V-8, on the other hand, delivers shockingly quick acceleration, and even the most committed environmentalists will have sầu khổng lồ admit it sounds glorious. Sporty SV Autobiography models do a surprisingly good job of controlling toàn thân roll, but fore-aft pitch is a problem across the lineup. It drives well enough if not pressed, but compared for over-the-road agility against high-performance SUVs such as the BMW X5 M and the Mercedes-AMG GLS63, the Land Rover is downright sloppy. We"re willing to forgive some of these handling deficiencies when we consider the Range Rover"s off-road abilities, which remain stellar.
