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. The 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 center 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 facelifted 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.
