Undeniably, the new 2017 Land Rover Range Rover is the benchmark of full-size SUV luxury vehicles courtesy of fuel-efficiency, an available long-wheelbase body style, opulent interior, capable off-roading, and a quick acceleration especially with the supercharged V8 engine. The Land Rover Range Rover release date should be expected sometime in early 2017.
An icon of luxury, opulence, classic beauty, and off-road performance, the Land Rover Range Rover 2017 returns with minimal but much-needed changes that are meant to bring it to par with modernity. One standout that particularly strikes us about this venerable crossover is its seamless integration of style and functionality.
Just like every Land Rover before it, the new model continues to set the pace in terms of off-roading performance, and does so in a fashionable style. Even when asphalt turns to dirt, the new model is well-suited for the adventure thanks to the All-Terrain Progress Control system.
Now in its fifth year of production, the new vehicle is better than ever. A handful of upgrades have been integrated on several facets including its performance. The SE model – the basic model – however, soldiers into the new model year unchanged. Therefore expect its output to remain at 340 horsepower, which is more than enough to get the job done whether it’s off-road adventure or highway and city cruising. Those looking for more mojo can get the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover SV Autobiography that transmits a whopping 550-horsepower to the ground.
Much can be said about the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover redesign but the bottom line remains it’s much better than the existing model, and should be the ultimate vehicle for anyone looking for creature comforts regardless of the terrain traversed. Alternatives include the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, Porsche Cayenne, and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.
