Range Rover Vogue
Automatic / Manual
For the well-off, no other luxury SUV says as much about its owner than the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover. Exquisitely detailed both inside and out, the Range Rover will never be mistaken for another brand, and unlike some competitors, it doesn’t share its platform with lesser SUVs that cater to common folk. Where the Range Rover really stands out in is its impressive off-road abilities, an attribute you won’t find Range Rover gains new styling both inside and out. New available features include 24-way adjustable and massaging seats, the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system and an air cabin ionization unit. The Autobiography Dynamic sees its horsepower rating elevated to 557.
All Range Rovers include standard full-time four-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic. A sophisticated traction and stability control system features modes tailored for a variety of on- and off-road use, plus a handy automatic mode that takes the guesswork out. With its height-adjustable, air-sprung suspension, the 2018 Range Rover is supremely capable off-road. What’s most impressive is that it out-handles many sports sedans on pavement, even in its most basic configuration. In normal use, the Range Rover is characteristically languid in its composure. It seems as if nothing short of the pockmarked pavement of a warzone will disturb its occupants, and even then the insulated glass and extensive sound-deadening will keep the outside world, well, outside.
The classically styled Range Rover pampers at every level, but Autobiography trims are especially comfortable with their quilted semi-aniline leather trim, rear-seat tables, dual refrigerators, and 1,700-watt Meridian audio system.
On all, a redesigned rear seating area provides exceptional comfort for outboard passengers this year, especially in long-wheelbase models that add an extra 7.3 inches of stretch-out space.
There’s plenty of room for customization when it comes to the Range Rover’s options, interior and exterior hues, and engine choices.
