Statistically, most drivers opt for the vehicles they drive based on some set of criteria: whether it is the engine specs or the costs associated with driving or a certain quality. In any case, the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged offers a combination of high power and ultimate performance which, although not needed by absolutely everyone, will still come in handy for that select clientele.
Currently, there are two versions of this model, but we will talk about that little bit later. Certainly, having a powerful vehicle capable of tackling numerous obstacles can come in handy in some situations. With the Adaptive Dynamics featured in the new version, it fits that role perfectly, in addition to being a true monster on the road that provides you a fantastic level of comfort and luxury.
The 2017 Range Rover Land Rover Supercharged is expected to reach the market in 2016, preferably before the winter. This would allow it to take on competition that has been preparing and had a lot to offer in this segment.
The price is not going to be stable and similar to what we needed to pay for the last year model. There are lots of cool features that enthusiasts simply can’t do without and this will certainly push the price significantly higher. If they could, the car would only cost them $65,000. Fully equipped, however, it could set you back almost $112,000. And that is before you even take into account fuel consumption, which is appalling, to say the least, but then again, priorities are priorities. The base version with 3.0-liter supercharged engine will set you back for about $85,000 and if you opt for the most powerful 5.0-liter supercharged V8 be prepared to shell out about $104,000 and more.
2017 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged
On the outside, the 2017 Range Rover Land Rover Supercharged is in a league of its own. The exterior appearance features elements that are both muscular and futuristic, combining delicate bends and etched corners in a perfect blend of supreme engineering. Meanwhile, the strategically placed and shaped windshield and the hood offer maximum field of view, without sacrificing performance, safety or aerodynamics. The front fascia has received some attention, and the new color and wheel options are a nice addition as well.
Shiny mesh grille with a lot of chrome is contained with large headlights and LED daytime running lights. The lower segment of the bumper received fog lights that also use LED technology and this in combination with high stance show off power and refinement of this vehicle. Well known and iconic style and design have been modernized and nicely implemented for this model.
On the inside, the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged features everything one might expect out of a vehicle of its caliber. Aside from the general, elegant design, it incorporates finest upholstery and customizable seats, which are probably the most pleasant surprise of the entire vehicle. The fact that the car is now lighter has not affected the driving experience in a negative way – quite the contrary. Besides that, the infotainment and navigation systems have been updated, and connectivity options are greater than ever. Safety features have improved as well.
Land Rover again decided to stick with the analog gauges behind the steering wheel, and we do not mind this because it is quite elegant. Depending on the trim you might be even getting nice chromed rings around it and air condition ducts. Center console comes with a touchscreen, and you can use it to access almost all in car systems through it. There are buttons on both sides of this display and underneath we have climate controls and pretty much futuristic automatic transmission controls.
There are two basic engine options over several trims for the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged. One is the 3.0 L supercharged V-6, whereas those who prefer some real muscle can opt for the 5.0 L supercharged V-8. The former brings 340 horses and 332 pound-feet of torque, while the latter boasts 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque. Both feature 8-speed automatic transmission. The “weaker” engine can reach 0-60 mph in about six seconds and top it off at 130 mph, whereas the “stronger” shaves almost two seconds to 60 and adds another ten mph to the top speed. The latter also boasts slightly worse fuel consumption – not that these gas-guzzlers care for that sort of things. Getting 16-19 miles per gallon is outrageous nowadays, but then again, these cars aren’t meant for traffic jams anyway.
