What Is the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover?

The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover is a five-seat SUV that competes with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, Porsche Cayenne and Lexus LX 570. Trim levels include the 3.0L V6 Supercharged, 3.0L V6 Turbocharged Diesel Td6, 3.0L V6 Supercharged HSE, 3.0L V6 Turbocharged Diesel HSE Td6, 5.0L V8 Supercharged, 5.0L V8 Supercharged Autobiography, 5.0L V8 Supercharged SVAutobiography Dynamic and 5.0L V8 Supercharged SVAutobiography.

What's New on the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover?

The most major update for the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover is a new SVAutobiography Dynamic trim with a 5.0-liter V-8 engine with 550 horsepower and a lowered suspension. The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover also adds blind spot assist and advanced tow assist, the latter of which helps you guide an attached trailer when reversing, and an intelligent speed limiter, which uses road signs to set the SUV's speed. The InControl Touch Pro multimedia system with a 10.2-inch touchscreen, an option on past models of the Land Rover Range Rover, is standard for 2017.

How Does the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Compare to Other SUVs?

The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover has few competitors based on its size and price. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class comes close to competing with its available diesel engine, as does the Porsche Cayenne with a broad engine range including a diesel option. The higher-end trim levels of these competitors overlap with both the features and the base price of the Land Rover Range Rover, but their starting prices are notably lower if cost is a factor.

What Features in the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Are Most Important?

The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover is powered by a standard 340-horsepower (380-hp in HSE models), supercharged 3.0-liter gas V-6 engine. Engine options include a 254-hp, turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 engine and a 510-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter gas V-8 engine (550 hp in the SVAutobiography model). All 2017 Range Rover models come with full-time four-wheel drive, an eight-speed automatic transmission with a knob gear selector and air suspension. Significant standard features include leather upholstery and wood interior trim, heated front seats, roll stability control, and two dashboard screens - a 12.3-inch display for the instrument cluster and a 10.2-inch touchscreen in the middle of the dash. Keeping with new vehicle requirements, every Range Rover includes front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.

Significant available features include Terrain Response 2 Auto - which can automatically adjust vehicle settings when moving as conditions dictate - forward collision warning with automatic braking, a panoramic glass roof, power side steps, power-reclining and massaging rear seats, a backseat entertainment system with two 8-inch screens, front and rear cooled storage bins, 360-degree cameras and an automated parking system.

Should I Buy the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover?

Since the Land Rover Range Rover is a luxury SUV, the decision to buy comes down to the individual's perception of the brand. If you have the cash for a posh, costly status symbol, the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover could be for you.

While it is undeniably a status symbol, the Land Rover Range Rover does boast engine and performance features that deliver. It's as comfortable as the brand name suggests, and it comes with impressive - although under-utilized - off-road capability. Those looking for a status symbol complete with comfort and power will find their match in the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover, provided they're OK shelling out a large sum for the brand-name status.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
