Her Royal Highness? sport-ute.

by Sue Mead

If it's good enough for the queen, it's good enough for us. The original luxury SUV is so good, in fact, that it remains the best offering in its segment despite serious competition from Lexus, Lincoln, Mercedes, and most recently, its parent company, BMW.

For year 2000, this upscale sport-utility vehicle that boasts great off-road ability and luxuriant trappings has only minor changes, including trim updates and reduced engine emissions.

Call it stodgy, boxy, or downright imposing, Range Rover's sheet metal (lightweight and rustproof aluminum over a stout steel frame) projects its unflappable, go-anywhere performance. This year, the bolt-on body hardware has been significantly freshened. Body-color bumpers, front spoilers, and exterior mirrors now grace the exterior. Front and rear turn signals and side marker lamps use smoke-gray plastic lenses for a more modern, sporty look, while new headlamps and fog lamps add to the familial resemblance to the newer, more svelte Discovery Series II. The 4.0 SE models now ship with the "Lightning"-design 16-inch alloy wheels. Two new paint hues, Alveston Red and Kent Green, are added this year, and color combinations have been expanded: Whereas in 1999 only certain interior/exterior combinations were produced, customers can now mix and match at will.

On this side of the pond, we're treated to two versions of the Range Rover, both assembled in Land Rover's Solihull factory. On paper, the 4.0-liter 188-bhp SE and 4.6-liter 222-bhp HSE differ only in displacement, tires, and mudguards, not to mention $8,000. But on the road, the HSE's 64-lb-ft torque advantage makes all the difference in the world, giving the unhurried Range Rover the guts it needs to compete with the fine powerplants from Lexus and Lincoln, and for that matter, the rest of the globe. Both of Range Rover's engines meet California's Low-Emission Vehicle (LEV) standard this year, thanks to new catalytic converters and secondary air pumps. An electronically controlled automatic is the only transmission offering; it allows manual +/- gear selection or uses a driver-adaptive shifting program when in "drive."

Fastidious four-wheel-drive

Though Land Rover may take some lumps from purists, the traditional (heavy, complicated, maintenance-intensive) 4WD system, with its locking differentials, was scrapped last year in favor of an all-electronic routine similar to the one introduced on Mercedes' ML 320. Using existing ABS equipment and open (unlocked) differentials, a computer program curbs errant wheel spin at each corner of the vehicle by applying momentary brake pressure, providing forward motion as long as a single wheel has grip. Combined with Range Rover's standard driver-adjustable, self-leveling air suspension, short overhangs and excellent ground clearance, off-road performance is arguably second to none. And though it's unlikely that many will have tours of duty in the woods, the underbody is well protected against the rocks and stumps that could tear clean through the floor of lesser SUVs.

Powerful brakes haul this 2.5-ton beast to a controlled, quick stop, and emergency handling is quite secure due to Range Rover's wagonlike low center of gravity. When cruising, ample sound deadening keeps the cabin Euro-sedan quiet. A tall, comfortable seating position and a small-diameter, meaty steering wheel make the British ute one of the best vehicles around for long-distance travel, if one doesn't mind fuel economy in the middle to low teens.

Inside this capable trail climber (which kneels politely to ease entry, thanks to its air suspension), you'll find all the amenities expected by the choosy royal family. Automatic climate control, leather, and CD changer are there, of course. But the details make the difference - the Range Rover offers a tasteful narrow band of burl walnut and well-tailored seats, trimmed by unique dark piping. Side airbags are standard equipment. This year, Land Rover revised the cup holders and instrument graphics, and applied a healthy dose of retro chrome to the H-gate gearshift surround, shifter, and handbrake buttons.

Kings and queens never seem short on funds, but for most of their subjects, the lofty price of the Range Rover will keep it out of reach. Here's a tip though: If you're willing to sacrifice the smallest bit of prestige to save a few pence, consider the Land Rover Discovery Series II. Sharing the structural and mechanical underpinnings of its more expensive brother, it equals the on- and off-road performance of its sibling while offering more cargo room and seating for seven.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 4 Years/50,000 Miles
Drivetrain 4 Years/50,000 Miles
Corrosion 6 Years/Unlimited Miles
Roadside Assistance 4 Years/50,000 Miles

Land Rover Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

Terms include up to 7 year/ 100,000 miles limited warranty, 24-hour roadside assistance and a 165-point vehicle inspection, no warranty deductible, and trip interruption benefits.
Age/Mileage Eligibility Model Years 2012-2015 and less than 60,000 miles
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection 165-Point Inspection
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance Yes
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible $0
