Three trim levels are available for the long wheelbase (LWB) version: the Supercharged 5.0L, Autobiography, and SV Autobiography.

Overall, the Range Rover has a minimalistic, sleek exterior with blockish, geometric body forms and lines. It features its signature contrasting rooftop with blacked-out A, B, C, and D pillars, chrome accents on the grille and side vents, and distinctive LED taillights.

Standard features include automatic headlights, air suspension, power/heated side mirrors, a power liftgate, automatic dimming side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, and 19-inch wheels.
