The fourth generation Range Rover is the most refined and capable model since its launch in 1970. It has been redeveloped from the ground up to provide ultimate luxury, while exceeding the breadth and accessibility of its off-road capability.
The new Range Rover has been redesigned with a clean and elegant shape. While instantly recognisable as a Range Rover, the new vehicle is a bold evolution of the iconic design. The silhouette is now gently tapered and more curved, and with a roofline 20mm lower in the access mode, the new Range Rover is the most aerodynamic ever. The raised, commanding driving position gives a better view of the road ahead, providing the driver with a supreme sense of confidence and control, whatever the road conditions.
The fresh and contemporary feel is continued inside. The broader, more refined centre console has 50% fewer switches, and it is more intuitive, with the most essential controls within easy reach. The cleaner and more elegant surfaces, made from fine leathers and veneers, give a feeling of serenity and calm. The interior is lit by as much natural light as possible, giving the driver and passengers the feeling of travelling through an environment, rather than being shielded from it. This can be enhanced further with the optional, full-size panoramic roof.
Developed with Meridian specialists, an exceptional audio system has been specially developed to offer the ultimate 3D surround sound experience for all seating positions. There are three systems available, ranging up to the stunning 1700W Signature Reference system which has 29 high-efficiency speakers including a subwoofer for exceptional clarity and dynamics with additional speakers mounted at roof level for highly optimised sound quality.
With the adoption of the latest body and chassis technologies, the vehicle’s all-terrain performance has improved both in the breadth and accessibility of its off-road capability, and its on-road handling and refinement. The Range Rover features Terrain Response 2, with an intelligent analysis system that assesses the current driving conditions and selects the most suitable terrain program. Terrain Response 2 optimises driveability and traction by adapting the responses from the engine, gearbox, central differential and chassis system to the terrain’s demands. As you would expect, the Range Rover features full-time intelligent 4WD for the most comfortable drive.
Its torque-rich engines deliver swift and effortless performance, with a choice of a supercharged 5.0 litre V8 engine and two diesel engines. Engine economy is improved with intelligent Stop Start technology now fitted as standard. When the vehicle comes to a halt at traffic lights or in heavy traffic, the system will check whether the engine is required, and if not, it will turn it off. On release of the brake the engine instantaneously restarts, smoothly and seamlessly.
In addition, all models are now equipped with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission gearbox.Inspired by high-performance, lightweight aerospace structures, the new Range Rover is the first SUV with an all-aluminium monocoque body, improving performance and efficiency. This is 39% lighter than a steel body, so gives a more agile and responsive drive. It also absorbs more energy per kg than steel, making it more able to withstand punishing off-road impacts and improved collision safety. The reduction in weight also gives the new generation Range Rover further enhancements to fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
The Range Rover has a sophisticated range of safety aids to maximise performance and safety during challenging manoeuvres. These include Hill Descent Control, Gradient Release Control, Hill Start Assist, Dynamic Stability Control, Electronic Traction Control and Roll Stability Control.
