Land Rover has unveiled the 2018 Range Rover. Aside from its fresh looks, this luxury SUV comes with a powerful engine, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) variant, and tons of features that’s perfect for the on-the-go businessman.
Comparing it to its predecessor, the new Range Rover has square LED headlights, wider and deeper air intakes, and a silver skid plate. On its side, this SUV has sportier character lines unlike the outgoing model, which had purely chromed accents. The rear, on the other hand, remained pretty much the same sans the darker taillights.
Inside, occupants are treated to a leather-wrapped cabin. The seats, which can be moved in 24 different ways, are now wider compared to the previous model. It also has 25 massage programs.
For those who need to work while travelling, the Range Rover has a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot and 17 connection points for various devices.
Meanwhile, its on-board entertainment is provided by Jaguar Land Rover’s Touch Pro Duo. It features two 10-inch touchscreens on the center console wherein information can be swiped from one screen to the other. These can also be used to fold the rear seats. As for the rear occupants, they too have two 10-inch touchscreens mounted on the front headrests to play with.
Another cool feature of the Range Rover is the ‘Gesture Sunblind’ and ‘Activity Key.’ The former allows its occupants to open and close the sunroof blinds via hand motion, while the latter allows owners to securely lock/unlock their vehicle without the need of the conventional key fob.
Under the hood, the Range Rover will be powered by either a 3.0L V6 engine available in gas and diesel options or a 5.0L V8 mill. The 3.0L V6 gasoline engine has a 2 versions; one that can squeeze 340 hp and the other at 380 hp. Its diesel counterpart can only come up to 254 hp. The 5.0L V8 engine, on the other hand, also has 2 versions that can do 518 hp and 557 hp, depending on the vehicle variant.
Those who want a more environmental-friendly SUV can choose its PHEV variant that features a 2.0L gas engine paired with electric motor that can produce a combined total of 398 hp. It can launch the Range Rover PHEV from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds, but it only has an electric range of 51 km.
