The 2018 Range Rover Land Rover comes standard with a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 that produces 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque and delivers an EPA-rated 17/23 mpg city/highway. A 380 hp version of the same engine is available in the HSE model. The optional 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 pumps out 254 hp and a healthy 443 lb-ft of torque and comes rated at 22/28 mpg. Available in the Supercharged and Autobiography models is the 518-hp, 461-lb-ft 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 that delivers 14/19 mpg (all 2017 fuel economy figures). The new 557-hp, 516-lb-ft version of the same supercharged V-8 comes equipped in the top SVAutobiography Dynamic model. All engines are backed by an eight-speed automatic and models come with four-wheel drive as standard. The available long-wheelbase model comes standard with the 518-hp V-8. In Motor Trend testing, the 340-hp Range Rover hit 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and stopped from 60 mph in 126 feet.
The ride is comfortable, even with 22-inch wheels shod in low-profile tires. “The Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic’s interior, awash with beautifully wrought diamond quilted leather and highlighted with sparkling metalwork, is a wonderfully serene place from which to watch the world go by. The dash and door panels feature a black veneer, and the rotary shifter features a thin red band. Red anodized paddles peek out from behind the leather-clad steering wheel, unless you’ve ordered a tan interior.”
