For almost half a century, the Range Rover has been the epitome of design, engineering and comfort, and through the SUV’s four generations it has become a motoring icon for all ages.
Since the vehicle’s first outing in 1970, the luxury off-roader has become the marker for other companies to try and match, but many have yet to succeed the same level of comfort and performance that the Range Rover provides. The latest model, the SVAutobiography Dynamic, is going on sale this year and it continues many of the models unique features, such as the floating roof that became iconic during the first generation and split tailgate.
As one of the world’s first vehicles to have permanent four-wheel drive, the Range Rover is a vital vehicle for the progression of the motoring industry, and after originally being released as a two-door model, the four-door was then introduced to provide more flexibility.
Throughout its life, the Range Rover has broken new ground as it was the first 4x4 to be fitted with anti-lock brakes, electronic traction control and automatic electronic air suspension, and even in recent years, it has been innovative.
In 2012, the fourth generation was the first 4x4 to have an all-aluminium body and in 2014, the Range Rover became the first vehicle to be fitted with an all-terrain semi-autonomous cruise control, the All-Terrain Progress Control.
It has been the flagship vehicle for the Land Rover range throughout its history, and after 1.7million sales, Hunters Land Rover hope to continue providing the best service to the magnificent Range Rover.
