Nine of the new Range Rover’s most important numbers
A brand-new Rangie is a Big Deal. Here are the stats from *the* SUV
The amount of power offered by the biggest, fattest new engine on offer in the new Range Rover. It’s a 4.4-litre V8, and comes via the medium of BMW, here badged as a P530. As fitted in the range-topping SV line (remember, no SVR for the big Range Rover), it kicks out a herculean 553lb ft and will happily punt you from 0-60mph in just 4.4secs.Advertisement - Page continues below
That’s how much the new Range Rover is priced from in the UK.
The new Range Rover gets a pair of PHEV powertrains – a 3.0-litre straight six matched to an 105kW electric motor (140bhp) and a 38.2kWh battery, available with either 457lb ft of torque (P440e) or 516lb ft (P510e). Land Rover reckons in both of these cars you’ll be able to drive up to 62 miles on electricity alone – which equates to 50 miles of “expected real-world range”.Advertisement - Page continues below
Not a big number, but a big deal - this is the new Range Rover’s drag coefficient, which makes it, says LR, “the most aerodynamically efficient luxury SUV in the world”.
The new Rangie gets Land Rover’s third-generation ‘active noise cancellation’ tech; a system that monitors wheel vibrations, tyre noise and engine sounds, and counters with a signal played through 35 – yes, thirty five – speakers, including a pair of 60mm units in the headrests for four occupants.
The turning circle of the new Range Rover, thanks to all-wheel-steering, making it the smallest of any LR product.
The number of hours of “computational analysis” the new RR completed before the physical car was tested, using “motorsport-derived sim technology”. Look! It drifts!Advertisement - Page continues below
The length, in millimetres, of the biggest version of the biggest SUV that Land Rover will make. That’s 5.2m of length, taking in a wheelbase of 3,197mm for the LWB Rangie, which can accommodate seven people.
The amount of Range Rovers sold since the car’s launch in 1970. That’s all four generations from Classic, P38a, L322 and L405, codename fans. Nothing to do with the new Range Rover of course – because it’s only just been revealed – but a signal of how successful it's been.Advertisement - Page continues below
