The most powerful Range Rover is here. Meet the 550HP potent SVAutobiography Dynamic [w/video]
Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic is the latest addition to the 2017 Model Year lineup
This is the most powerful Range Rover up to date, which has just joined the 2017 lineup. For those impatient and interested to see and drive the model, the sales will start during the last quarter of this year. But before you head for the stores, there are some important details that will fire-up your excitement even more.
The first thing we have to mention is the additional engine, which the model gets. Besides the standard 550HP V8 supercharged unit, the SVAutobiography Dynamic is now optional with Jaguar Land Rover's 3.0 litre V6 supercharged petrol engine.
If you go for the first one, then your SVAutobiography Dynamic will be the most powerful Range Rover on the road. The V8 not only produces 550HP, but is also capable of 680 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a ZF's eight-speed automatic transmission, thus ensuring it is possible for the SUV to make it from 0 to 60mph in just 5.1 seconds. The top speed is 140mph. The additional engine, the V6, pumps out 340 PS and 450 Nm of torque, helping the vehicle produce a 0-60 time of 7.1s.
Many new technologies aid the performance of this Range Rover, too. To name a few, some of the standard Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) include the Rear Park Distance Control, Cruise Control and Speed Limiter, Lane Departure Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB).
A cool option however, is the ‘Drive Pack'. Besides the existing features like the Blind Spot Monitor, it also adds technology such as the Intelligent Speed Limiter. The latter utilizes Traffic Sign Recognition hardware, which automatically adjusts the vehicle speed. Another option is the ‘Drive Pro Pack', which adds Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist and Intelligent Emergency Braking.
Advanced Tow Assist and Low Traction Launch are also new features which will take any anxiety out of the difficult task when towing a trailer. More importantly, Jaguar Land Rover is now introducing for its 2017 lineup the ‘InControl Touch Pro' infotainment system with improved satellite navigation and larger 10-inch dual-view touchscreen display.
New exterior colors will freshen up the 2017 Model Year Range Rover. With the help of Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations division, the most popular SUV is now getting an addition of 19 new metallic and pearlescent shades, which are also available in gloss or satin matte finishes.
Well, besides what's new the SVAutobiography Dynamic, will make you stand out on the road. It shows-off with these unique exterior features: side vents, bonnet finisher, grille, front bumper accents, ‘Range Rover' script and tailgate finisher. Not forgetting to mention that the SUV is running on a 21 or 22-inch alloys, which can be chosen in one of three finishes. Behind them sit the eye-catching red brake calipers and Brembo brakes.
The luxurious interior, which the future owner will enjoy, includes diamond quilted leather seats with contrast stitching, offset by Grand Black veneer front fascia and door casings, rotary shift controller, start stop button and pedals with knurled finish.
So, to sum up, 2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic has received a range of advanced semi-autonomous driving technologies, luxurious materials inside and out, and being powered by a potent V8 engine makes it the most powerful and dynamic production Range Rover to date. At last, by the end of this year, those of you living in the UK will have the opportunity of buying the SUV with prices starting from £76,350 for the TDV6 Vogue, while the SVAutobiography Dynamic will be priced at £132,800.
