The Land Rover Range Rover hasn’t changed a lot of in 50 years. It resembles the Porsche 911 of SUVs – each age improves, quicker, and more mechanical, yet by all accounts, this is as yet unchanged old Rover you know and love.

The 2022 Range Rover continues in the strides of its ancestor in that regard. A similar fundamental recipe applies: a recognizable outline, a natural inside, and indeed, even a V8. However, more than the fourth-age model, this one takes these trademarks to the following level.

Range Rover designers merely tweaked the SUV’s iconic silhouette for its fifth generation. But they added meaningful details in places where it matters most. The headlights sport new LEDs at their base, the front bumper is cleaner, and the traditional taillights are gone in place of a rectangular strip of black glass that hides LEDs underneath. Even the side profile sheds the once fussy accents for a single U-shaped motif just below the front mirror.

This is a First Edition model, which gains the gorgeous Sunset Gold Satin finish (a cool $7,450 option). And this tester adds gloss $900 23-inch wheels to the mix and a $1,000 Shadowline Exterior pack, which toughens up the styling with black upper and lower grilles, mirror caps, and more.

The interior is wonderfully lavish, with lush semi-aniline leather nearly everywhere you can put your hands – in this case, a lovely Perlino white finish as part of the standard SV Bespoke extended leather upgrade. Layers of hefty aluminum accent the steering wheel and dash, and even the shifter is a weighty aluminum handle that feels exceptional in your palm. A wonderful wood finish coats the center console, but if you really want to get extravagant, there’s still room to grow. The SV model offers a wood mosaic and white ceramic controls.

The 2022 Range Rover’s standard air suspension tracks down an ideal center ground between excessively floaty and excessively firm. In the event that Goldilocks were a vehicle commentator, she’d concur that the ride is perfect. In Comfort mode, the enormous SUV is uncommonly extravagant. Yet, even in the most forceful Sport mode, the dampers don’t solidify to the point of making the ride self-conscious, all things considered. Contrasted with something like a BMW X7, the Range Rover’s ride in either setting.

The just slight weakness to the Rover’s generally remarkable ride quality is the 23-inch wheel choice prepared on this vehicle, which yields a smidgen of roughness. However, we would expect to be the 21-and 22-inch wheels cut down on street brutality and tire thunder somewhat.

For the initial time ever in the Range Rover collection, the organization currently offers a third-column choice on the LWB. However, the SWB tried here is just accessible in a two-line design. In any case, the Executive Class back seating (standard on the First Edition) capitalizes on those two columns, with an electrically deployable back place armrest and a parlor style right back seat with a footstool. Additionally, the notable split back end remains, and it’s full enhancer and down with the snap of the vital fob.

Technology & Connectivity

  • Instrument Cluster Display: 13.7 Inches
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto: Yes/Yes

Beyond simply looking lovely, the Range Rover’s new 13.1-inch bended touchscreen show does all that you need it to – and well. With a revived Pivi Pro infotainment framework installed, the home screen is sans messiness with each choice organized conveniently inside an upward box. The illustrations are fresh, contact responsiveness is cell phone speedy, and remote Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard across the board.

A new 13.7-inch computerized instrument group embellishes the scramble, but instead than the regular tablet-style rectangular point of interaction that is very much normal, this one has a remarkable shape. The six-sided screen balances down from the scramble like a cave rock formation, and it accompanies broad customization choices. You can do the full moderate course with a computerized speedometer and fuel check just or go hard and fast and view route and rough terrain capabilities from the display.

Passengers in the subsequent line approach two completely clear 11.4-inch back seat theater setups with screen reflecting and HDMI inputs. You can stream your number one shows as well as plug in a gaming console for really long trips.

Performance & Handling


  • Engine: Twin-Turbo 4.4-Liter V8
  • Output: 523 Horsepower/553 Pound-Feet
  • Transmission: Eight-Speed Automatic

Without “Game” in its name, this new Range Rover is just so… energetic. One of the features, however, is the twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 motor. Acquired from the BMW X7 and conveying similar 523 pull and 553 pound-feet, the new Rover races off the line with a rich style. Power conveyance here is smooth and refined, perhaps somewhat better than in the X7, and assists the Range Rover with hitting 60 miles each hour in a strong 5.5 seconds.

A ZF eight-speed programmed is the standard transmission in all cases, and it’s harmless, best case scenario. The controlling is exceptionally light and simple to make due, which makes the huge SUV good to move at low paces. Both of these settings are entirely fine for a non-execution extravagance SUV.

But flip the Terrain Response handle to switch between drive modes and you can solidify the air suspension, fix the guiding, and hone the choke. In Dynamic mode, the choke is more responsive, the guiding is heavier and more responsive, and the versatile air suspension changes the Range Rover from comfortable and agreeable to genuinely deft – or, as deft as a 5,840-pound vehicle can be.



  • Driver Assistance Level: SAE Level 2 (Hands-On)
  • NHTSA Rating: Not Rated
  • IIHS Rating: Not Rated

An whole set-up of dynamic security gear comes standard on the 2022 Range Rover, and it incorporates things like programmed crisis slowing down, versatile voyage control, vulnerable side observing, path centering, and high-shaft help. On the parkway, those elements worked consistently to keep the Rover focused in the path. What’s more, the combo of front and back leaving sensors and a 360-degree above camera makes maneuvering this large vehicle into parking spaces a cinch.

The one-year run begins at $164,475 and offers a couple of trim select components like the Sunset Gold silk finish ($7,450), entryway ledges with the “Principal Edition” moniker, and the chief back seats. Indeed, even completely optioned, you won’t track down a BMW or Mercedes elective very like it. On the other side, the Autobiography matches the richness of the First Edition yet is accessible with more paint, upholstery, and trim choices. Except if you truly need the First Edition’s restrictiveness, the Autobiography is the better buy.

This specific vehicle likewise has the $1,000 Shadow outside pack prepared and the $900 23-inch gleam dark wheels to go with it (there is a no-cost 23-inch choice, as well), and that implies you’ll be gazing intently at the barrel at an as-tried cost of $175,825.
