In the nine years since the current Range Rover was introduced, the luxury SUV market has seen a transformative renaissance. What was once the only choice in the segment had to fend off attacks from Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce. For 2022, the Range Rover strikes back. Equipped with new technology popularized by its rivals, streamlined styling and a new ultra-luxurious interior, the new Range Rover comes back for the throne.
That starts with the integration of Dynamic Response Pro, Land’s brand name Rover for an active 48 volt stabilizer. Similar systems have proven transformative in SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus, serving as the secret ingredient that enables large, 5,000-pound SUVs to go as flat as sports sedans without sacrificing ride quality. Together with the completely independent square air suspension and the standard all-wheel steering of the Range Rover, Dynamic Response Pro – if properly tuned – should offer a sublime driving experience with greatly improved chassis serenity.
It should also run smoothly on the drive train front. First year customers can choose between the silky-supercharged in-line six-cylinder Ingenium (395 hp / 496 lb-ft) or the more powerful 4.4-liter V-8 with twin turbocharging (523 hp / 553 lb-ft). If you recognize these numbers, it’s because the 523bhp 4.4-liter V-8 came from BMW, who uses it in cars like the M550i and X7. The fastest version with the V-8 should reach 60 in 4.4 seconds. Those who are more interested in efficiency will be pleased that a plug-in hybrid with 100 kilometers of purely electric range will be added for model year 2023, while a fully electric Range Rover will be launched in 2024.
Inside, the cabin is a further development of the longstanding Range Rover design theme. The dual-screen infotainment system returns, but the top screen is now a 13.1-inch floating display with haptic feedback. CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, and over-the-air updates are all popping up as is tradition with any new car in 2021. The third row of seats is also available, a first for the Range Rover in full size.
The exterior design is also an evolution. Although the current Range Rover is now nearly a decade old, it’s still one of – if not the – most beautiful SUVs. The beautiful front styling is massaged and stretched, but largely familiar. The side profile now directs the view to the abrupt and angular rear, which has been stretched vertically and horizontally by a new rear light element in the form of an elongated horseshoe. The design gives the Range Rover a lot more visual weight to differentiate it from its streamlined siblings Sport and Velar, but the end result is no less sensational than the last model.
Prices start at $ 105,350 including destination fees, with the 7-seater long wheelbase version starting at $ 111,350. Don’t think it ends here. In an effort to stay at the forefront, Land Rover has continuously expanded its list of ultra-luxury options. A long wheelbase First Edition version – with lounge-style rear seats available and a V-8 powertrain – will cost you $ 163,850. The order books are open today and the first deliveries are planned for spring 2022.
