When crossing water, the Range Rover is as capable as customers would imagine, with a maximum wading depth of 35.4-inches (900mm).
When cruising at sustained speeds above 65mph (105km/h)4, the suspension automatically lowers the body by 0.6-inches (15mm) to help reduce drag. At a standstill, Access Height lowers the vehicle by up to 2-inches (50mm) to aid ingress and egress of the vehicle. This feature can also lock the suspension at this low level, enabling the Range Rover to travel at speeds of up to 25mph (40km/h)4 in locations with restricted height, such as multi-story parking lots3.
The SÚV's ride height can also be increased with two elevated suspension height settings. Off-Road Ride Height 1 lifts the vehicle by as much as 1.6-inches (40mm) at speeds of up to 50mph (80km/h)4, while Off-Road Ride Height 2 raises the body by 3-inches (75mm) at speeds of up to 31mph (50km/h)4 for a maximum ground clearance of 11.7-inches (297mm)3.
For towing and loading, owners can control the height of the vehicle's rear, which can be lowered by as much as 2.4-inches (60mm) for improved loading or raised by 3.5-inches (90mm) to assist in the hitching of trailers when stationary, using controls at the side of the rear loadspace.
The Range Rover also benefits from available Advanced Tow Assist, which is designed to allow drivers to use the central touchscreen and rotary Terrain Response® 2 selector to steer the vehicle when reversing3.TECHNOLOGY
From its intuitive touchscreen infotainment to the comprehensive range of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, the golden anniversary Range Rover continues the tradition of pioneering technology that has been part of the Range Rover story for 50 years.
Enhanced smartphone connectivity is available as standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ available while the embedded Spotify app gives customers instant access to more than 50 million tracks and more than 700,000 podcasts2.
'For five decades the Range Rover has been a technological pioneer, introducing a series of innovations to the mainstream – it was the first SÚV to use ABS anti-lock brakes, the first to feature automatic electronic air suspension and the world's first all-aluminum SÚV,' said Alex Heslop, Director, Electronics and Software, Jaguar Land Rover. 'The Range Rover is more connected than ever, giving drivers and passengers the latest in comfort, safety and convenience features in a sophisticated luxury SÚV.'
Developed with Spotify, the new embedded app is integrated with the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system so customers can enjoy their favorite playlists without even connecting their smartphone. Through the Spotify Connect feature, playback can resume from any other device when customers get into their car – from just where they left off for a seamless listening experience2.
The music app is accessed via the Touch Pro Duo infotainment, which features two high-definition 10-inch touchscreens at the center of the beautifully crafted cabin. The system combines physical controls and an elegant digital interface to deliver a connected driving experience. Touch Pro Duo allows the driver or front passenger to dual-task, keeping mapping information displayed on the upper touchscreen while providing easy access to further features on the secondary lower display2.
The upper screen on the central console can be angled to help counter glare and improve visibility while the fixed lower 10-inch display is the control panel for managing functional tasks including climate control, seat and vehicle settings. The intuitive Dynamic Dials allow drivers and passengers to control the climate control and heated and cooled seats quickly and easily on the move2.
Ahead of the driver, the Interactive Driver Display presents a range information on its 12-inch high resolution screen. In addition, the available next-generation Head-Úp Display (HÚD) system uses a 10-inch full-color projection to provide key information to the driver including, vehicle speed, navigation directions, speed limits and Advanced Driver Assistance system information can be displayed. The full-color image is generated using four super-bright LEDs and a high resolution TFT LCD screen3.
With essential information directly in the driver's field of view, the Range Rover puts control at owner's fingertips on the steering wheel, featuring intuitive capacitive switches with dynamic illuminated icons. Drivers have access to the full instrument cluster, including media playback, phone and cruise control2.
Passengers in the Range Rover have access to up to 17 electrical sockets ranging from ÚSB plugs, HDMI connectors, 12V and 110V charging points, which are integrated discretely throughout the cabin. Customers can also specify the luxury SÚV with 10-inch rear seat entertainment touchscreens for passengers in the second row. Connectivity is equally generous, with provision for up to eight 4G Wi-Fi connections, making the Range Rover a mobile technology hub5.
2021 Range Rover models can also be specified with one of three powerful Meridian™ audio systems, ranging from 380W or 825W Surround Systems to the flagship 1700W Signature Sound System, providing 13, 19, and 29 speakers respectively in addition to a dual-channel subwoofer.

The Range Rover can be fitted with a variety of four-, six- and eight-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines, including mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid options.
The mild hybrid 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder gasoline engine is available in 355hp and 395hp outputs, while the most powerful Range Rover models feature the brand's 5.0-liter supercharged V8 gasoline engine, in a choice of 518hp and 557hp outputs. The 557hp is capable of acceleration from 0-60mph in as little as 5.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds)4, with an electronically-limited top speed of 130mph4 and delivers a blend of performance, comfort and refinement.
A powerful 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 diesel engine is available exclusively in the Range Rover HSE, delivering 254hp and 443 lb ft of torque.
The P400e plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrain combines an advanced 296hp (221kW) turbocharged four-cylinder Ingenium gasoline engine with an 114hp (105kW) electric motor, for a combined power output of 398hp (297kW). With 472 lb ft of torque, it blends dynamic and sustainable performance with traditional Range Rover capability, comfort and refinement – the P400e accelerates from 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.8 seconds)4 and achieves an electronically-limited top speed of 137mph4.
The combination of Ingenium gasoline and electric power can be used in two driving modes: Parallel Hybrid mode (the default driving mode) and EV (Electric Vehicle) mode.
Parallel Hybrid mode comes with two charge-management features. Predictive Energy Optimization helps to make the most of both power sources and is activated when the driver enters a destination into the navigation system2. By analyzing the traffic, gradient of the route and whether it is urban or rural, the PHEV system is designed to seamlessly combine electric and Ingenium gasoline engine power.
The driver-selectable SAVE mode is accessed through the central touchscreen and maintains battery charge at the point of activation2. At this point, the vehicle will only use the electric motor once it has replenished enough energy via charging or regenerative braking, allowing customers to conserve electric power to be used on a specific part of their journey.
In EV mode, the P400e can be driven with zero tailpipe emissions. This driving mode is selected manually using a button on the console and gives the PHEV model an electric-only top speed of 85mph (137km/h)4.
The 7kW on-board recharging socket is hidden behind the Land Rover badge on the right of the grille, while the 13.1kWh prismatic cell lithium-ion battery is mounted at the rear, beneath the trunk floor.
All Range Rover PHEV models feature a Mode 3 charging cable as standard. All full charge from a 220V/32Amp dedicated charger using a Mode 3 cable can be achieved in as little as 2 hours 45 minutes7.
Timed charging is also available via the SÚV's infotainment system, which allows owners to choose the most appropriate time to begin charging – perfect for customers who want to plug in when they return home, but wait to top up the battery until later off-peak hours.
Customers can use the InControl smartphone app to monitor the charge status wherever they are, receiving alerts if there is an error or if the cable has been removed. Alternatively, illuminated bars either side of the charging socket provide a quick and simple visual indication of the charging status.
The operation of the PHEV powertrain is supported by an advanced eight-speed automatic transmission, which features lightweight construction and delivers the supreme refinement and assured responses expected from the Range Rover. The transmission is designed to adapt to individual driving styles, so dynamic driving is automatically accompanied by more prompt gear changes.
Jaguar Land Rover has focused on reducing the environmental impact of its vehicles and operations. This has included reducing the CO2 emissions from building each car by 46 percent compared to 2007 levels, and the purchase of zero-carbon electricity for all ÚK-based operations.
Jaguar Land Rover is also working with the Carbon Trust across its ÚK manufacturing and production sites to improve efficiency and reduce emissions. SV: THE PINNACLE OF RANGE ROVER
