The latest Range Rover model has all the trademark elements seen in the previous versions but somehow, its designers were able to build on them and create a fresh style while keeping its elegant nature.
Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer Gerry McGovern said that with the passing of four decades, the brand felt the need to preserve the icon’s DNA in creating the next-gen model. He shared that the group that handled its design sought to retain its classy measurements and untainted surfaces in order to keep its identity as a Range Rover.
Every aspect of the new model’s engineering was revamped with the primary goal of making the most capable model yet. At the center of this undertaking is the next-generation Land Rover's Terrain Response system that is a pioneer in the industry.
It’s now up to this system to choose the ideal settings to suit the terrain after making an analysis of the situation and its surroundings. As part of Land Rover’s meticulous development process, the new Range Rover model had to survive harsh testing on the road as well as off it.
Several development vehicles were driven millions of miles in over twenty countries in nearly two years to test how they’d do in the most challenging terrain and the worst climates. Assessing the robustness and consistency in this manner is how Land Rover guarantees that it is giving its customers the best.
No matter how erratic the conditions are, occupants still get a sense of tranquillity inside the cabin – a true indicator of the Range Rover’s luxury car status. Land Rover is able to keep the noise out because of its cleverly designed body structure as well as the acoustic lamination on its side door glass and windscreen.
Another sign of how refined the new Range Rover is its excellent suspension, resulting in a very comfortable ride. Only the best leathers and veneers were used for its luxurious interior to create a contemporary look and feel.
Those seated in the rear have more than 118mm additional legroom, which will surely be appreciated. Nonetheless, Land Rover offers a two-seat Executive Class seating package for the rear seats as an option. A smooth and incredible performance is provided by the new Range Rover model regardless of which engine is powering the vehicle.
Land Rover has tapped cutting-edge technologies to feature in the next-gen Range Rover, ranging from Meridian surround sound music systems, power upper and lower tailgates, to the newest chassis and driver assistance technologies.
Most remarkably, it was built with low-energy aluminium body construction technologies. Development, engineering, and production were all done in the UK.
The brand offers an array of refined V8 petrol engines and TDV6 and SDV8 diesel engines that all have extremely low CO2 emissions.
