2022 Land Rover Range Rover Review: Specs and Pricing


2022 Land Rover Range Rover

OVERVIEW


Although it has long-standing blue-collar roots, the 2022 Range Rover's luxurious interior and first-rate curb appeal are intended to draw in wealthier, white-collar buyers. Although it has taken years for this leather-lined limousine to change, it has now reached a position where its beginning price of almost six figures appears reasonable. Luxury materials like leather, wood, and densely piled carpets can be seen throughout the cottage. And there is a ton of technology. Customers may select between a powerful 523-hp twin-turbo V-8 engine or a turbocharged inline-six engine, but all models come standard with off-road-capable features like an all-wheel-drive system, rear-wheel steering, and an air suspension that can be lifted for more ground clearance.


Although few Range Rover owners would dare to travel too far from paved roads, having the option to do so is indeed a pleasure. Strangely, until inventory runs out, this new generation of Range Rover, which was introduced for the 2022 model year, will be sold alongside a 2022 model of the previous generation.


What has Changed for 2022?


Not to be mistaken with the outgoing model, which is also 2022, the brand-new 2022 Range Rover is completely rebuilt with modernized styling, new tech features, and opulent accents. For the 2023 model year, a more opulent and more customizable SV trim will be added to the lineup. There aren't many alterations made to the current-generation Range Rover for 2022, which is also a model year and is still in production.


The new Range Rover lineup no longer offers the diesel V-6 or plug-in hybrid P400e models, leaving only the turbocharged inline-six and the supercharged V-8 as available powertrains. A more powerful cabin air-ionization system is now an option for buyers.


2022 Range Rover: Pricing 


One of the most expensive base prices in the luxury large SUV class is the $92,000 starting price of the 2022 Range Rover. The most potent V8 variation of the Range Rover starts at roughly $180,000, with the majority of variants retailing for more than $100,000.


The long-wheelbase model's starting price ranges from $117,500 to $211,000, but thanks to a lengthy list of options, and trim can increase in price by tens of thousands of dollars.


Which one to Purchase?


We advise choosing the mid-range Autobiography model because it includes some desirable extras that premium consumers would value. For instance, the Autobiography has a 1600-watt Meridian stereo system with headrest-mounted speakers and active noise suppression as standard equipment. Both a short-wheelbase and a long-wheelbase body variant of the new Range Rover will be available; we advise choosing the latter because it makes way for the third row of seats and offers a larger cargo area.



2022 Range Rover: Interior and Comfort


The new Range Rover model features a luxury interior decked out in rich leathers and woods, similar to previous generations, but customers who prefer a more environmentally friendly interior may now choose a new leather-free alternative, which substitutes wool or other fabrics. Depending on the arrangement and wheelbase, the cabin can accommodate seating for four, five, or seven people.

Even in long-wheelbase trims, the third row may not suit tall people due to a lack of headroom, but shorter passengers and children will find it to be almost as comfortable as the second row. The Range Rover's split rear liftgate may be used as practical and comfortable seating for outdoor activities, and a motorized cargo compartment divider is an optional feature that helps keep cargo from rolling around excessively during transportation.


2022 Range Rover: Connectivity


A new 13.1-inch curved infotainment display with Land Rover's most recent Pivi Pro interface is included in all models of the new Range Rover. The technology includes Amazon's Alexa voice assistant in addition to wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In-dash navigation, wireless phone charging, Sirius XM satellite radio, and a 13.7-inch digital gauge display are further standard amenities. It includes a Meridian stereo system with 35 speakers and a rear-seat entertainment system with two 11.4-inch monitors.


2022 Range Rover: Engine and Performance


At first, three different powertrains will be offered for the new Range Rover, starting with the P400, a turbocharged inline-six with a 48-volt hybrid system that produces 395 horsepower. It proved to be silky-smooth on our initial test drive and had enough oomph to pull the big Range Rover around.

The Range Rover's towing capacity is increased to 8200 pounds with a 523-hp twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine that Land Rover calls the P530. A 434-hp plug-in hybrid option will be added to the roster for 2023, offering up to 48 miles of electric-only range; an all-electric variant will be offered to begin in 2024, according to Land Rover.


The 2018 Range Rover has a comfortable ride and nearly floats down the road when its adjustable air suspension is in Comfort mode. Even after switching to Dynamic mode, the large Rover still prioritizes comfort during its mission.

We'll update this article with test results as soon as we have the opportunity to drive the Range Rover on our test track. While this is going on, consumers may still be able to find the discontinued Range Rover hiding on a few dealer lots for a reasonable price.
