The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover sports the most refined design and technology-rich models to date. Most significantly, Land Rover shaved an incredible 700 pounds from its curb weight during the 2013 redesign, and the current Range Rover weighs only 4,974 pounds. This was achieved thanks to copious use of aluminum, which now makes up much of the unibody as well as both front and rear subframes.
Six Range Rover models are offered: Base, HSE, P525 HSE, Autobiography and SV Autobiography Dynamic. Six engine options are available under the hood of the Range Rover with base models getting a turbocharged 3.0L Inline 6-cylinder engine capable of 355 hp. HSE models come standard with a more powerful version of the inline 6-cylinder, this time making 395 hp. HSE and Autobiography models can be optioned with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine aided by an electric motor for a total of 398 hp. In the Autobiography and P525 HSE a 5.0L V8 is utilized, providing 518 hp-- enough to make the Range Rover startlingly quick. The SV Autobiography Dynamic trim takes things a step further with a 557-hp version of the 5.0L V8 engine. A turbocharged Td6 3.0L V6 diesel engine is optional on base and HSE models as well. It makes for an excellent compromise between power and efficiency, producing 254 hp but an intense 443 lb-feet of torque, with a highway fuel economy estimated at 24 mpg.
All Range Rovers come with an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox, which features steering wheel paddles for complete driver control.
All Range Rovers are also equipped with Terrain Response 2 Auto, Land Rover's next-generation system of off-road control. The system provides enhanced capability across every terrain and automatically adapts to driving conditions and road surfaces. Additionally, Range Rovers feature an all-wheel-drive system that splits torque 50/50 front to rear, along with a 2-speed transfer case for high and low ranges.
Range Rovers include 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, power folding and heated exterior mirrors, heated and rain-sensing wipers as standard equipment. Front and rear parking sensors with rear view camera, grained leather seats, 16-way power adjustable heated front seats, 10" Touch Pro Duo Infotainment system, a 380-watt Meridian sound system, 3-zone climate control, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, interactive driver display and interior LED accent lighting are also included.
Upgrading to the HSE brings more horsepower to the 3.0L V6 and adds 20-inch wheels, a panoramic roof, several more interior leather choices, soft-close doors and heated rear seats. Supercharged and Autobiography models move up to the 5.0L V8. The Supercharged trim is similarly equipped to the HSE but features 21-inch wheels, in addition to the more powerful engine. The Autobiography comes with all the bells and whistles, including 17 interior leather options, 24-way heated and cooled massaging front seats, power reclining heated and cooled rear seats, a leather headliner, 4-zone climate control, programmable ambient lighting, adaptive cruise control, a blind-spot monitor, an upgraded Meridian audio system and a rear seat entertainment with twin touchscreen displays. Finally, the SV Autobiography Dynamic brings the highest level of luxury and power with its 5.0L V8 Engine at 557-hp, and Dynamic Suspension tuning.
The Autobiography and SV Autobiography Dynamic also feature a Surround Camera System upgrade from the lower trim models. Autobiography, Supercharged and HSE Range Rovers are all available in long-wheelbase versions, which adds 7.3 inches to rear seat legroom.
Options allow for even more exclusivity in the Range Rover. The options list offers massaging front seats, entertainment package, front console coolers, surround cameras and full-size panoramic roofs.
Finally, safety is paramount on the Range Rover, and it comes loaded with a full slate of airbags and driving aids such as traction and stability control, cornering braking control and roll control.
