2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Utility
Benefits of Driving a 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Utility
The Range Rover has long been the king of luxury sport-utility vehicles, and for 2011 nothing' changed. The luxury off-roader provides some of the best performance in its class, on or off road. Luxury appointments set the Range Rover apart in a class of its own. Prices can easily exceed the $100k mark for the Supercharged models, but there's no other vehicle in this class that so blends top technology and refinement with a uniquely British--or Land Rover--look and feel.
What's new for 2011?
For 2011, Land Rover's top-of-the-line Range Rover receives a new Hill Hold Assist for starting the vehicle out on a grade. Inside, optional reclining rear seats appear in HSE Lux and Supercharged models and a new harman/kardon 1200-watt, 19-speaker stereo system also appears on the options list.

The Range Rover comes powered by one of two direct-injection engines. HSE and HSE Lux models utilize a 375-horsepower, 5.0L V8, while the SC models get a 510-horsepower, 5.0L V8. Both engines are shared with Jaguar but tweaked for the Land Rover and are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and 4-wheel-drive system. Both engines feature variable camshaft timing that enhances performance, optimizes emissions and provides respectable fuel consumption. The HSE can get to 60 mph in just 7.2 seconds, while the SC can make the same dash in 5.9 seconds.
