The new Range Rover delivers so much more – great comfort, huge carrying capacity, awesome off-road capability and massive towing ability, all with exemplary refinement. The Land Rover has barely altered the big 4×4’s exterior. It’s what’s under the bonnet that really counts. The 2007 model-year Range Rovers will now be available with a new V8 turbo diesel engine that massively improves the car’s 0-60mph time. The V8 has been designed to work off road; in order to keep the oil flowing to the turbos at extreme angles. Like all Land Rover engines, it is lightweight, compact and extremely strong. It has also developed a vacuum lubrication system. Added technologies include Land Rover’s acclaimed Terrain Response, electronic park brake and electronic rear ‘e’ differential. Improved cabin gains extra stowage, enhanced finishes and more effective air-conditioning – plus the option of cooled front seats. Inside, the changes are less dramatic than expected, with a new dash that retains the trademark vertical wooden spars. The handbrake is now electric, operated by a button on the centre console.
The latest Range Rover offers effortless performance, irrespective of terrain, and has better on-road performance than ever before, both in handling and straight-line speed.
“Most of the changes are very practical, designed to enhance day-to-day living with the vehicle,” says Land Rover’s design director Geoff Upex. Prices for the face lifted car look set to start at about $102,664 but you’re going to have to wait for the TDV8, as it doesn’t go on sale until November.
