Step aside, Autobiography Black. For the 2016 model year, the most luxurious version of the Land Rover Range Rover is the SVAutobiography, which makes its public debut at the 2015 New York auto show. It replaces and builds upon the previous Autobiography Black models. The new name stems from the fact that the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography is built by the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) team responsible for the high-performance Range Rover Sport SVR.

While Land Rover’s epically expensive and ultra-deluxe Range Rover SVAutobiography and sporty Range Rover Sport HST soaked up the limelight at the brand’s New York auto show stand, they weren’t the only news-makers. The regular Range Rover receives a smattering of minor updates for 2016, including a new diesel engine, a power bump for the base gas V-6 engine, and some new tech.Starting with our favorite topic, power, the mid-level 2016 Range Rover HSE’s supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 gains a 40-hp boost. Now, with 380 horsepower, the HSE stands a little taller above the base Range Rover, which still makes do with 340 ponies. The Td6 single-turbo six-cylinder diesel engine being offered in the 2016 Range Rover Sport joins the Range Rover lineup, where it makes the same 254 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. The diesel Range Rover is expected to achieve 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, a respectable set of estimates that’s far, far above … [Read more...] about 2016 Range Rover Gets Diesel Engine, Tech Upgrades
The performance junkies from Jaguar-Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations are putting their signature touch on another Land Rover product for the 2017 model year: The Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic.Like the $200,490 Range Rover SVAutobiography long-wheelbase model that debuted last year and the smaller $112,345 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR, the new SVAutobiography Dynamic features a beastly 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 that produces 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. Power is routed through an eight-speed automatic transmission and, as expected from a vehicle wearing the Land Rover badge, is sent to all four wheels.At $171,990 the SVAutobiography Dynamic arguably falls somewhere in between the ultra-luxurious Range Rover SVAutobiography long-wheelbase and the sporty Range Rover Sport SVR. As its name implies, the Dynamic improves the Range Rover’s on-road performance courtesy of a 0.3-inch drop in ride height, as well as the additions … [Read more...] about $171,990 SVAutobiography Dynamic Leads 2017 Range Rover Changes
Better warn the bellhop you’re packing heavy if you pull up with this green Range Rover. It’s fully loaded, literally, with storage for two handcrafted English shotguns in the boot.After a year on the Continent hunting driven birds and the like, the Range Rover Holland & Holland Edition is making its way to America for the cool price of $245,495.

When Land Rover pulled the sheet off of the Range Rover SVAutobiography, its new $200,490 range-topping model, we noted that the rich Rover is the ultimate SUV—at least until the SUVs from Rolls-Royce and Bentley arrive. That got us thinking, however: How would Range Rover adapt to this new world order where it doesn’t offer the go-to option for wealthy SUV customers? So at the 2015 New York auto show, we put the question to Jaguar-Land Rover North America’s President and CEO, Joe Eberhardt—and received a frankly surprising answer.When asked whether Land Rover might whip up a larger, more-expensive model to sit above the Range Rover, Eberhardt said he does not “see a model above the Range Rover,” adding that “we haven’t yet seen where Range Rover can go.” So, in the face of potentially $300,000–$400,000 SUVs from Rolls-Royce and Bentley, Land Rover won’t be adding a separate, more-upscale model to compete … [Read more...] about Land Rover Won’t Add New Nameplate to Take on Rolls-Royce, Bentley
Land Rover clearly believes that you can’t have too much of a good thing, certainly when it comes to loading both specification and price onto the Range Rover Evoque. The company’s design director, Gerry McGovern, has reportedly confirmed to Australian site Car Advice that there are plans to produce an SVAutobiography version of the babiest Rangie, hot on the heels of the unveiling of the full-sized version last week at the New York auto show.The full-size Range Rover SVAutobiography has basically been designed both to show Bentley that—ahead of the launch of the Bentyaga—that Land Rover can also offer megabucks SUVs to the discerning millionaire who wants to stand out. Indeed, standing out seems a big part of the brief for the SVAutobiography, which gets unique two-tone paintwork. McGovern used the word “expensive” to describe its design no fewer than three times when he introduced it at a preview event before the show. We … [Read more...] about Range Rover Evoque Set to Spawn Posh SVAutobiography Model
