An Iconic Flagship Range Rover Made Better with Revolutionary Technology
After experimenting and learning from the mistakes of the previous two generations, Land Rover engineers realized the true potential locked into such an iconic vehicle. with a free hand from the new owners, BMW. Range Rover’s third generation was completely redesigned from the ground up; frankly, it was a transformation. This Range Rover was in a class of its own. Huge changes were made that revolutionized the handling and performance to a great extent.
A utilitarian vehicle in the past was transformed into a capable cruiser in urban settings and off-road specialists through jungles and uneven terrain. Even though it was marketed as a brilliant 4×4 however, the main reason for its astonishing sales figures was its comfort and driving refinement, commanding view and supreme Brand Value. Many other brands tried to imitate it but barely anyone succeeded to have bettered or even equaling their brand.
Finest Quality Engines
Being the flagship vehicle, Range Rover was given the finest and most powerful engines to move those large vehicles. There are both petrol and diesel engines available and the petrol range starts with a heavy-weight choice of a 4.4-Liter V8 that produces 282 hp and 440 Nm of torque. Next comes a supercharged 4.2 V8 producing 395 hp and 560 Nm of torque. A step up from this is a 4.4-litre V8 producing 301 hp and 440 Nm of torque. A 5.0-litre V8 engine produces 370 hp and 510 Nm of torque. The most powerful engine of the petrol range is the 5.0-litre supercharged petrol engine producing 503 hp and 625 Nm of torque.
The diesel engine range starts from a 3.0 Td6 engine producing 175 hp and 390 Nm of torque. Next up is a 3.6-litre TDV8 that produces 268 hp and 640 Nm of torque. Finally, a 4.4-litre supercharged V8 produce 309 hp with 700 Nm of torque. In case of issues in these engines, you could always go for reconditioned or used Range Rover engines and save cost on replacement.
Revolutionary New Exterior
The new monocoque unibody not only brought changes in handling and comfort, but it also brought visible and revolutionary changes to the exterior. Range Rover looked beefed up yet more aerodynamic. The historic features were kept intact such as the clamshell bonnet, split tailgate, pinched back and reclining roofline. The front was made more slippery to reduce the drag with clean lines and a better aero shape. The front lights are very well-placed and the front grill looks well-placed and contemporary. The side profile is improved with the introduction of the fins and lower profile tyres supported by beautiful alloy rims. The same theme goes at the back as the traditional split tailgate and beautifully chromed tail lights. In shorts, Range Rover MK3 comes with a presence that is felt immediately.
Cutting Edge Luxury Interior
While the engineers at Land Rover were attempting a complete revolutionization, they did not spare the interior from the change either. The interior received a complete makeover and the results were spectacular. A selection of elite materials, the latest gadgets of that time and vast space leave you in awe and provides you with a premium feel.
A modernized cabin includes plenty of gadgets aiding the driver to be more aware of the surroundings and helping the driver to drive with more command and authority. You get an infotainment system for multimedia and navigation. You can order a hybrid TV, surround sound audio systems, entertainment screens at the back and a dual view screen in the facia. You also get back view cameras, military-grade cruise control that uses sensors to detect the traffic ahead and night vision.
Its leather upholstery and premium-quality seats embrace you and there are plenty of places to keep your valuables. There is so much space available for both front and back seats. You can stretch your legs as much as you like and never feel confused as far as the headroom is concerned. The boot holds the capacity to accommodate all the luggage you and your family require for a long holiday.
Handling and Ride Comfort
There were huge improvements in terms of handling and ride comfort as the monocoque body comes into play. The body roll is minimized again thanks to the all-aluminium body. Newer technology incorporated in the suspension makes the cornering feels like a sports car instead of a big bulky SUV. The brilliant terrain response system comes into play and makes it easy to deal with any difficult surface.
The cabin and its quality help eliminate road noise and make it more comfortable. The bumps and potholes do not affect you as much as they used to in the older versions and you can drive and corner the vehicle as you, please at any given speed. All in all, the handling and ride quality is much improved when you do a comparison with the older versions.
