2023 Land Rover Range Rover is what global elites get attracted to the Range Rover. As, this doesn’t offer the SUV’s legendary off-road capability, but rather it is effortlessly elegant styling, an opulent cabin, and the A-list status that it’s developed over the years. This latest model represents the most grandeur Range Rover ever. A plethora of powertrain options; which includes a hybrid delivers ample power. Also, the British Marque’s largest SUV comports itself through traffic princely, with a buttery ride and a hushed cabin. Venturing off-road is though an option for Range Rover owners, so, AWD is standard and the air suspension raises to provide extra ground clearance. The Rover starts at just over $100,000, making it more expensive than rivals such as the Cadillac Escalade, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, and the Mercedes-Benz GLS-class.
The re-designed Range Rover debuted for the 2022 model year, but it caused some serious confusion when sold alongside the previous gen model, and not all of its variants were available. By 2023, the older gen model is no more. Also, for 2023 the plug-in hybrid P440e powertrain joins the family, and Land Rover claims this setup will provide up to 48 miles of electric-only driving range. It’s available exclusively on the short-wheelbase SE trim.
Engine, Performance & Acceleration
The 2023 Range Rover is offered with a plethora of powertrains, starting with a turbocharged inline-six with a 48-volt hybrid system named P400. This churns out 395-hp. On testing, it proved to be buttery-smooth and provided enough juice to pull the large-bodied Rover around. While a 523-hp twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine; Land Rover named it as P530 is even vivacious and cranks up the Range Rover’s towing capacity to 8200 pounds. The 434-hp plug-in hybrid option; called P440e is also available but only on the short wheelbase SE trim. The Rover’s ride is suitably plush and, when its adjustable air suspension is set to Comfort mode, it virtually floats down the road. Dialing the dial to Dynamic mode firms things up some, but the big boy still aims for a comfort-first mission.
