Is the Land Rover Range Rover a Good Vehicle for You?



Some vehicle brands come with a lot of history. Land Rover, a British-made vehicle that began in 1948, is one of those vehicles. One of its most recognizable models is the Land Rover Range Rover, which debuted in 1970. How far has your Land Rover in Lexington, KY, come since then?

Three Generations
In the United States, the Land Rover brand has only been around since 1989. Since then, Land Rover has only produced three different generations of the Range Rover. The Range Rover, as with most of Land Rover’s vehicles, is designed to be an all-wheel drive vehicle that is excellent for off-roading, but luxurious at the same time. Throughout the years Range Rover has seen a lot of different trim options and adjustments to the interior and exterior features. The second generation of the Range Rover arrived in 1994, and the current third generation debuted in 2013. The 2014 model has introduced a new engine option for the Base model.

Range Rover Features for 2014
While the 2013 Base model sported a 5.0 L V8 with 375 horsepower and a 14/20 mpg, the Base engine for 2014 models is a more fuel-economy friendly 3.0 L V6 with 340 horsepower and 17/23 mpg. The Supercharged model still contains a 5.0 L V8 with 510 horsepower and 13/19 mpg. Both models are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Safety features that are standard on all Range Rover models include traction and stability control, front side airbags and side curtain airbags, a driver side knee airbag, front and rear parking sensors, rearview camera, and more. You can also purchase an optional vision assist package, surround view parking camera, and blind spot monitoring. Other standard features are 19-inch wheels, adjustable air suspension, heated and power-folding mirrors, a power lift gate, auto headlights, keyless entry and

ignition, climate control, power front seats, a heated steering wheel, navigation system, Bluetooth, USB and auxiliary ports, and satellite radio. An upgrade to the Supercharged trim level gives you 21-inch wheels, fog lights, power sunroof, stainless steel pedals, auto terrain response system, heated rear seats, auto dimming side mirrors, and leather upholstery.
