Class-leading V-8 engines, a multi-talented 6-speed transmission, Terrain Response upgrades and external styling enhancements all combine to ensure the 2011 Range Rover retains its crown as king of the luxury SUV segment.
The 5.0-liter, 510-horsepower supercharged and 375-hp naturally-aspirated V-8 engines deliver supreme performance. Their world-class performance is not accompanied by an increase in fuel consumption and emissions compared to their predecessors. These lightweight, Direct Injection engines combine benchmark efficiency with outstanding power and torque. Acceleration in the naturally aspirated Range Rover to 60 mph is reached in just 7.2 seconds, while the supercharged V-8 will rush to 60 mph in a mere 5.9 seconds.
The 2011 model-year Range Rover is further enhanced by improvements to the Terrain Response system in the form of Hill Start Assist and Gradient Acceleration Control. Adaptive Dynamics technology offers firm control of body motions through turns while providing the calm, composed ride Range Rovers are famous for.
Improvements to the exterior include new “Jupiter” grilles and side vents for the naturally-aspirated models. To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the introduction of the very first Range Rover, a new Autobiography Black 40th Anniversary Limited Edition gives customers a more individual model to choose from.
The 2011 Range Rover interior employs luxury-grade European leather trim depending on model for the headlining, pillars and door casings. High-quality satin black and natural wood finishes complete the sumptuous feel of the interior architecture.
Base model estimated mpg: 12/18
Estimated starting price: $79,685
