The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover SUV is an icon for good reasons.
It’s equally at home in tony neighborhoods as it is traversing the netherworld. It’s comfortable and capable, luxurious and beautiful.
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.
The HSE adds larger wheels, softer leather, heated rear seats, a panoramic moonroof, and a surround-view camera, while the Supercharged builds in a V-8 engine and a few more goodies. A handful of packages restructured for the 2018 model year for both base and HSE trims pile on goodies like a rear-seat entertainment system, head-up display, and active lane control.
