ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

To keep its luxury SUV crown, Range Rover has added a few new jewels to its 2011 models, the 2011 Range Rover HSE and the 2011 Range Rover Supercharged. A light external refresh includes "Jupiter" grilles and side vents for non-supercharged models, while new range-wide interior options include reclining rear seats, laminated privacy glass and a Harman/Kardon 1200-watt, 19-speaker audio system with 15 independent channels. To find the real improvements, though, delve beneath the regal skin.

For drivers who actually use their vehicles in proper off-road conditions, Range Rover has refined its driver-programmable Terrain Response system, the brains behind its all-wheel drive and traction control functions. New features include Hill Start Assist, that stops the vehicle from rolling back while facing up an incline without the need to keep a foot on the brake. Gradient Acceleration Control maintains variable downhill speeds in forward and reverse gears, for extremely steep descents or for traction-compromised surfaces like snow and ice. Other upgrades are the addition of Sand Launch Control and revisions to the Rock Crawl Program.

A fresh model on the showroom floor (which also enjoys the same tech tweaks) is the Autobiography Black 40th Anniversary Limited Edition, commemorating four decades since the introduction of the very first Range Rover. It comes in Barolo Black and rolls on 20-inch, diamond-turned alloy wheels. Trimmings include a bespoke grille with Titan mesh, a bright chrome grille edge and black grille surround. The Range Rover's distinctive side vents also have a new mesh with bright chrome bars and a black vent surround. Door handles are body colored and an Autobiography Black badge adorns the tailgate.

Interior trim choices are the standard Jet, while options run to Jet/Ivory or Jet/Pimento. Rear seats have heating and cooling, as well as airline-style winged head restraints and four-way adjustable lumbar support. Autobiography Black logos are embossed on the rear seat armrest and on the four Grand Black door veneers. This model also gets illuminated front door-sill tread plates and a half-wood Grand Black steering wheel. The key fob and driver's handbook also carry the Autobiography Black logo.

It's safe to say that the notion of crossing the Alps in Armani or tackling the Badlands in Balenciaga is still alive and well at Range Rover.
