For most of us, a car is more than just a means of transport. It reflects our lifestyle and passion. If the car is a stunning SUV called the Range Rover, then it definitely reflects class and comfort! A luxury 4-wheel drive, the Range Rover is also the epitome of grace and strength. It is manufactured by the British car brand Land Rover.
Launched in 1970, the SUV is in its 4th generation as of now, and is being developed as a premium model for Land Rover. It would be interesting to know a little more about the car:
1st generation Range Rover (1970-1996)
The early Range Rovers had basic interiors with vinyl seats and dashboards that could be washed down using a hosepipe. Later, some features such as carpeted flooring, power steering, air conditioning, upholstered seats, and wooden interior trims were added. Specialist utility vehicles were conceptualized from the 1st generation Range Rovers.
2nd generation Range Rover (1994-2002)
The 2nd generation Range Rover was introduced for the 1995 model year with an updated engine. It was launched 25 years after the 1st generation Range Rover was introduced. It was the first model to include Satellite Navigation as an option.
This model was the last to feature the Rover V8 engine and interior leather.
3rd generation Range Rover (2002-2012)
In 2002, the Range Rover model moved further up-market. The third generation model shared components and systems with the 7 Series (E38). It was planned that way to accommodate BMW’s M62 V8 engines in their future makes. The 7 Series electronics system was replaced with the electronics from the BMW E39 5 Series.
4th generation Range Rover (2012 onwards)
Codenamed L405, the 4th generation Range Rover was introduced in September 2012 at the Paris Motor Show.
The diesel-powered Range Rover hybrid electric model was showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013.
