The new 2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic is now translating the Range Rover Sport SVR into a high-powered ultra-luxury sport utility vehicle flagship.
Land Rover has decided for the 2017 model year update of the Range Rover range to combine the high-power credentials of the Range Rover Sport SVR with the luxury panache of the Range Rover SVAutobiography. The result is the Dynamic version, which uses the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine packing the same 550 horsepower (405 kilowatts) and 502 pound-feet (680 Newton-meters) of torque. The stratospheric SUV can jump to 60 mph (96 kph) in just 5.1 seconds on its way to a maximum speed of 140 mph (225 kph). The AWD is linked to the engine via ZF’s well-known eight-speed automatic transmission.
Among the standard features of the new 2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic we can highlight the Dynamic Response and Adaptive Dynamics technologies for better control and handling of the behemoth SUV. Setting itself apart from the already ultra-luxurious SVAutobiography, the Dynamic has Graphite Atlas accents on the grille, hood, front bumper, side vents, and tailgate. A first for a Range Rover, the owners can also opt for red calipers and Brembo brakes – and the body can be had in three hues, combined with 21- and 22-inch alloys.
The cabin is of course ultra-luxurious, as the new SVAutobiography Dynamic will go head to head with Bentely’s Bentayga. We have diamond-quilted leather seats with four options for the contrast stitching, Grand Black veneer for the dashboard and door casings, as well as red accents here and there throughout the cabin. There’s also a knurled finish for the pedals, start/stop button, and the rotary shift controller. As far as pricing goes, the new version is £132,800 in United Kingdom.
The rest of the 2017 Range Rover lineup has a new supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine option, packing 340 hp (250 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm), with the color catalogue updated for 19 new hues – in metallic, pearlescent, gloss, and satin matte finishes. Inside the latest update of the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with 10-inch touchscreen and live apps is included, as well as technologies such as Rear Park Distance Control, Lane Departure Warning, Cruise Control, Speed Limiter, and Autonomous Emergency Braking. The “Drive pack” ads Sign Recognition and Reverse Traffic Detection, Blind Spot Monitor, and Intelligent Speed Limiter that also takes inputs from the Traffic Sign Recognition to adjust the speed. The UK-spec 2017 Range Rover lineup starts at £76,350 for the entry level TDV6 Vogue version.
