Roadfly.com – 2011 Range Rover Review & Road Test

The 2011 Range Rover is the ultimate off-road machine, and it’s been recently updated for more luxury and a more functional interior, as well as improved aesthetics inside and out.

It has a 5.0L V8 producing 375hp and 375 lb-ft. of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic with “CommandShift” function channeling power through all 4 wheels.

The Range Rover buffs its off-road credentials with a two-speed transfer case of the electronic variety, with an electronic center differential.

There’s a dizzying array of off-road specific driver-controlled settings to play with, like Gradient Release Control and Hill Descent Control, as well as the advanced “Terrain Response System” with settings for General, Snow, Mud, Sand, and Rock.

Our test car wore almost $12,000 in optional equipment, pumping its as-tested price up to $90,735 from a starting MSRP of $78,835.

Those options were a $1700 audio system upgrade, a $4600 “Luxury Interior Package,” a $1000 “climate glass and 4-zone AC” system, $1250 for reclining rear seats and $2500 for rear-seat DVD entertainment.

Written by Roadfly Charlie

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
