Even though Land Rover has been building its flagship SUV for the reason that 1970, the range Rover wasn’t a Hollywood mogul have to-have till it starred in Robert Altman’s award-triumphing film The player in 1992. Tim Robbins plays Hollywood studio exec Griffin Mill, but in place of the same old red Ferrari or massive Benz sedan, Altman starts the film along with his protagonist riding a brand new black first-era variety Rover. This movie positioned the variety Rover not simplest on the map, however on the purchasing list of Hollywood’s A-listing.

Twenty-five years later the brand new fourth-technology variety Rover remains the extensive luxurious SUV of desire for the rich and famous, from the Kardashians to Jay-Z and Jennifer Aniston. And for a terrific motive. Few different vehicles are as highly-priced, as comfy or as succesful.available in 5 Trim levels

constructed approximately one hundred miles northeast of London, the 2017 Land Rover variety Rover is offered in  wheelbases and 5 trim stages: Base; HSE; Supercharged; Autobiography; and SVAutobiography Dynamic. each is equipped with all-wheel pressure and an eight-pace automated transmission. There are numerous engines to be had, including a faster diesel. there may be no hybrid model.

charges start at $86,645, along with $995 for destination and managing, for the bottom variety Rover model and $93,645 for an HSE. each come popular with a 340-hp three.zero-liter supercharged V6, which is satisfactorily effective for most customers, and such luxuries as Bluetooth, navigation and a electricity tailgate. A extra gasoline-efficient 254-hp three.0-liter rapid-diesel V6 is an option for $2,000. The HSE has an to be had improve to a 380-hp version of the supercharged gas V6 for $5,000.

The performance good buy of the lineup is the $104,890 Supercharged version, like our test automobile, which gets a 510-hp supercharged 5.0-liter V8. That equal engine is inside the Autobiography, which prices north of $a hundred and forty,000. The among the best and extremely-high priced SVAutobiography fees $one hundred seventy,000, and gets the identical 550-hp supercharged V8 Land Rover uses in its variety Rover recreation SVR high-overall performance version and Jaguar uses in its F-type R sports car.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Land Rover refuses to offer a third row in the Range Rover. Land Rover will gladly sell you a third row in a Range Rover Sport, which uses the same all-aluminum chassis and 115-inch wheelbase as the Range Rover, or the new Land Rover Discovery. Both seat seven. But not the big dog. The Range Rover flagship seats a maximum of five. This is of course good news for Mercedes-Benz, which markets its seven-passenger GLS against the Range Rover.

Here’s the second curve ball. Land Rover offers the Range Rover in an extended-wheelbase model that adds over eight inches to the SUVs wheelbase and extends the second-row leg room significantly. Still, no third row, however. In fact, the long wheelbase models only seat four, as the rear-seat bench becomes two reclining captain’s chairs.

The long-wheelbase model is for those that like to be driven, as in kings, queens and Ryan Seacrest. Prices start at $109,890 and climb beyond the $200,000 mark for the fully loaded SVAutobiograpy with what Land Rover calls "Rear Executive Class" seating with calf rests, power-deployable tables and a champagne bottle chiller.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 For most families the five-passenger capacity of the standard-wheelbase Range Rover is sufficient. If you need more seats, the three-row Range Rover Sport is a compelling alternative, as is the BMW X5, but the larger Mercedes GLS is far more spacious. And if you really need big, the Lincoln Navigator and the Cadillac Escalade  are worth checking out.

The Range Rover does offer more rear-seat space than you’ll find in many of its competitors. If you carpool with Rob Gronkowski, Dont’a Hightower and Danny Amendola you won’t have any problems. Just ask Tom Brady, he drives one. Rear-seat air-conditioning vents are standard on the Range Rover, while heated rear seats and soft door-closing are standard on the HSE and up. A rear -seat entertainment system is available.

Young parents will appreciate the Range Rover Sport's easy to reach LATCH connectors in the outboard seats and the easily accessed upper-tether anchors on the seatbacks. Crash-test scores for this model are not available.                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Cargo space behind the Rover’s second row is extremely generous. The 2017 Range Rover offers 32.1 cubic feet of cargo space back there, and it’s easily accessed by its unique split tailgate that always creates a perfect place to sit or picnic. That’s more than enough room for a Costco run, but the larger Mercedes offers 49.4 cubic feet.

The second row is split 60/40, and it easily folds flat. Fold the second row, and there are an impressive 82.8 cubic feet of space, which is about average for the class. The Mercedes offers 93.8 cubic feet, while the smaller BMW X5 offers just 66 cubic feet.

Storage inside the Rover’s interior is also copious. The felt-lined center console bin is deep enough to store an iPad and there are large bins, also felt-lined, on each door for small items. The well-placed front-seat cupholders are deep for that morning brew and they accommodate cups with handles. The backseat cupholders are in a fold-down armrest that accommodates the middle seat when in use.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Land Rover has finally improved its infotainment system for 2017. What was once painfully slow and frustrating to use is now quick to respond and easier to navigate. Land Rover still uses an intuitive touchscreen, and that screen has grown from 8.3-inches to a more modern 10.2 inches.

This is one of the best interiors in the segment, simple, understated, but very well-appointed and impeccably tailored. It’s also extremely comfortable with large, well-shaped seats and powerful seat heaters.

All the surfaces are soft to the touch, and all the knobs and switches are covered in beautiful, muted aluminum trim which pairs beautifully with the high-gloss wood trim. Nothing feels cheap or chintzy, and the thick, leather-wrapped steering wheel is just perfect. The driver’s seat is height-adjustable for shorter drivers, and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel is standard.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Our range Rover Supercharged take a look at automobile was very clean to force around town. Its mild steering and a tight turning circle make it easy to park, and it’s a laugh to hustle this massive SUV via visitors. even though it weighs -and-a-1/2 lots, it feels light on its toes. There’s some frame roll in corners, which takes a bit being used to, but the dealing with is amazing for a automobile this massive. It’s athletic, and it loves to be tossed around.

There’s lots of electricity from the Rover’s supercharged V8, and it sounds extraordinary with a throaty V8 rumble. additionally, the automatic transmission is nicely-geared and pleasingly responsive. It also has a recreation putting for extra energetic performance.

The long-travel air suspension affords a tender and compliant ride, but you could experience the texture of the street via the steering wheel. Out at the motorway, it’s extraordinarily quiet and it rides fantastically. this is a splendid avenue ride vehicle. I as soon as drove one from Vail, Colorado to  Los Angeles in one day with almost no fatigue. It’s that relaxed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         will probably never drive her Range Rover through 35.3 inches of water, although Land Rover says it’s possible. The truth is most buyers will never explore the Range Rover’s full off-road capabilities, despite the truck’s reputation for going anywhere and driving over anything.

This is a shame. At a local off-road park, our test vehicle lived up to that reputation. With its height-adjustable air suspension at it highest setting to increase ground clearance, the Range Rover tackled obstacles we would have run away from in other SUVs.

Thanks to its generous wheel travel, I was able to drive it up some challenging trail sections and hill climbs, some steep enough to test the Rover’s class leading approach and departure angles and max out the traction of its 21-inch tires. Thanks to the Rover’s all-wheel drive system, which offers four settings for different surfaces, and its quick-acting traction control system, I always made it to the top and the Rover’s Hill Descent Control allowed us to get back down slowly and safely. Traction in deep sand was astonishing.
