2018 Land Rover Range Rover

Pros: Ferocious acceleration in supercharged V8 models; impeccably luxurious cabin; fantastic off-road capabilities, good on-road driving dynamics

Cons: Stratospheric prices, especially in Autobiography models; some complex controls; seating for five only—no 3rd-row is available

CG Says: The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover has revised exterior and interior styling. The infotainment control system is revamped and now has two screens. Horsepower for the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 increases from 510 to 518 in Supercharged and Autobiography models and from 550 to 557 in the topline SVAutobiography Dynamic. Range Rover is a premium large SUV with seating for five. The base engine is a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that is rated at 340 horsepower. Besides the supercharged V8, a 254-hp 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel is also available. All engines mate to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is standard. Available features include massaging seats, heated/cooled seats, power rear seats, hands-free tailgate, adaptive cruise control, surround-view cameras, parking assist, and power door closing. Available safety features include lane-keep assist and autonomous emergency braking. Few SUVs can come close to matching the Range Rover’s combination of good driving dynamics, luxurious accommodations, superb off-road ability, and country-club curb appeal. None of that comes cheap, however, as this is one of the most expensive SUVs around. Most buyers probably don’t need all the Range Rover has to offer, and as such, will likely find better value elsewhere.
