Behind the Wheel: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover
First debuting at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, the fourth-generation 2013 Land Rover Range Rover made a good impression as a car we were eager to drive, on- and off-road. The new Range Rover has been reinvented; it's now larger, more luxurious, and with the use of more aluminum, 700 pounds lighter than the previous model. It seems that the only things to really carry over to the new edition are the 5.0-liter V-8 with the available supercharged edition. After spending a day in Utah behind the wheel, associate editor Trevor Dorchies says the new Range Rover is "tough to beat." The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover differentiates itself from the rest of the SUV market with its improved handling and options, and it's combination of go-anywhere capability and ultra-luxury creature comforts. Owners can take comfort knowing that although the limits of the vehicle won't be tested on a daily basis, it is capable of handling almost any situation thrown its way. For 2013, you can order a Range Rover in an HSE, Supercharged, and Autobiography model, with each starting at $88,500, $99,950, and $130,950, respectively. Read it for yourself in Trevor's First Drive of the 2013 Range Rover.
With fuel economy on everyone's mind, manufacturers have turned to small turbocharged engines.
