A less expensive long-wheelbase version is available in the Range Rover HSE, and that trim also gains soft-close doors and heated/cooled front seats. A Driver Assistance Package adds lane-departure warning, Park Distance Control that can prevent side impacts in tight confines, and assistance systems for getting into and out of parallel-parking spots.
In an effort to improve fuel efficiency and decrease emissions output, the 2014 Range Rover's base engine is a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 instead of the naturally aspirated V8. (A supercharged V8 remains optional.) Also on the efficiency front is engine start/stop technology that reduces idling in stop-and-go traffic.
About Land Rover Range Rover
The 2015 Range Rover is the flagship SUV in Land Rover's lineup, offering some of the best on-road and off-road capability money can buy. Now in its fourth generation, this high-end 5-passenger SUV boasts sleek design, a lightweight aluminum body and sophisticated safety and technology systems. While the Range Rover's ability to roam to the ends of the Earth are renown, most surprising is its exceptional comfort and abundant power from a supercharged V6 or V8. Available in standard- or long-wheelbase form and spanning from an $84,000 "base" model to a $200,000 4-wheel-drive yacht, this British luxury SUV easily matches or bests rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and Lexus LX. However, the Range Rover has yet to attain its rivals' resale values.
