The Fourth Generation Range Rover Proves to Be the Perfect Driver\'s Car
|   Sunday, February 10, 2013
The fourth generation Range Rover managed to create a sudden hype in the market upon launch. The vehicle sported sophisticated yet smart designing traits which differentiated it from most of its predecessors which had an off road appeal. However, with the launch of the fourth generation Range Rover, Jaguar Land Rover confirmed that the firm had a lot of new technology up its sleeve and the mechanical and technical upgrades came as a welcome surprise to the fans.


The fourth generation Range Rover has dedicated weight saving measures, starting from a lightweight chassis to aluminum usage to keep the weight level at a bare minimum. The all aluminum engines are also doing its job of cutting out on weight. The power train weighs just 2.6 tons and this is a lot less than the engine on the third generation Range Rover.

Reduction in overall weight also ensures that driving and general ergonomics is better suited that its predecessor. The monocoque chassis is stiff, strong and provides sufficient support to the body structure of the vehicle. The vehicle is suited to off road travelling as a dual suspension system has been installed along with a new aluminum chassis arm. The system gives the vehicle more body control and less body roll hence making the perfect off roader.

Jaguar Land Rover has traded into unknown territory with the Range River and the technology seems to be paying off. The V6 engine displaces 255 BHP while the highest placed V8 engine displaces 503 BHP. The V8 hybrid arrives later this year and this could take the brand to a whole new dimension. Land Rover is developing the new vehicles keeping in mind the European buyers and as a result, the vehicles are suited to the local conditions.

The cabin space is huge and the Range Rover can fit in seven people with ease. Adequate shoulder space along with head and leg space make the ride quality smooth and comfortable and the Range Rover is the preferred car of choice for people who love to travel. The interior upholstery has been totally overhauled and the new leather work along with the new panels give a professional appeal to the interior.

The instrument cluster is well sorted and the major instruments and dials have a neat appeal. The total boot space of 2030 liter provides a huge space for passengers as well as their luggage and this is an important feature which makes the Land Rover perfect for travelling long distances. Two distinct trim levels – Vogue and Vogue SE – are being offered on the vehicle and without doubt, the Range Rover is one of the most luxurious SUVs on the road.

The driving position on the new vehicle has been altered and the higher seating position gives the driver a clear view of the road ahead. This makes driving easier apart from allowing better controllability of the vehicle as the controls are brought close to the driver. Jaguar Land Rover has done a commendable job with the Range Rover and the future models could be based on this vehicle.
