2012 Land Rover Range Rover Overview
If you’re a fan of Land Rovers and you crave pure, raw power, then you will want to get behind the wheel of the supercharged and luxurious 2012 Land Rover Range Rover.
Changes for 2012 include a limited Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition, revised exterior trim, standard iPod connectivity and HD Radio for the regular Range Rover, and an optional Tow Prep Kit that includes a full-size spare tire, towing electronics and a towing crossmember with a receiver. The Range Rover is available in HSE, HSE LUX, Supercharged, and Autobiography trims and is in the same family as the new Range Rover Evoque crossover and the less-rugged Range Rover Sport.
What the 2012 Range Rover can hang its hat on is its two very powerful engines. A naturally aspirated 375-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 produces 375 pounds-feet of torque and a giant 510-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 generates 461 pounds-feet of torque. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with full time intelligent all-wheel drive. CommandShift allows the driver to make manual sequential gear changes when needed and even shift into Sport mode for more nimble handling.
No matter where you go, the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover’s Terrain Response technology has traction settings for a variety of conditions including: grass, gravel, mud, ruts, sand, snow, and tarmac. Hill Descent Control with Gradient Release Control allows the driver to maintain a smooth, controlled speed whether the Range Rover is on a decline or incline, and off-roading enthusiasts will be pleased with 8.7 inches of ground clearance for the most extreme adventures.
The 2012 Range Rover isn’t all brawn though. An electric sunroof, 19-inch alloy wheels, power folding and heated exterior mirrors with memory, and xenon headlamps with headlamp wash are neat features. Seat five occupants in leather upholstery and wood trim. Three-zone automatic air conditioning, a touch-screen navigation system, powered and heated front seats, heated steering wheel and a virtual instrument panel that displays key dynamic information regarding the Range Rover’s performance are fun standard features. A USB/iPod interface and 720-watt, 14-speaker LOGIC7 audio system are also standard, while a rear screen entertainment system and 19-speaker premium audio system are optional.
Know that everyone is in safe hands whether you’re taking the Range Rover off-road or down the street to soccer practice. Antilock brakes, a backup camera, all-terrain Dynamic Stability Control, and a full suite of airbags are standard, while a blind spot warning system and adaptive headlights are optional.
