Range Rover Mk4 Launch

Land Rover has launched the Range Rover Mk4 in the Indian market today, which is one of the fastest launches we have seen for a global product till date. The fourth generation Range Rover might stay true to the Mk1 model of the 1970s, in terms of styling language, but is an all new vehicle underneath. The British automaker has improved the flagship Land Rover vehicle in all departments, making it one of the most capable on and off-road machines in the market.

The body of the new Range Rover is now tighter with impressive detailing around the headlamps and bumper. An new, all aluminum monocoque structure helps in reducing weight by 420 kgs, resulting in reduced body roll and improved driving dynamics. The new Range Rover gets a completely re-engineered air suspension which ensures carpet like ride quality even on the worst of roads. This SUV also gets Terrain Response System 2 with auto function.

The new Range Rover is offered with both petrol and diesel powertrains, which are mated to a new 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox. The 4367 cc V8 diesel engine produces a peak power output of 338 BHP at 3500 RPM and 700 Nm of torque between 1750-3000 RPM. The 5.0-litre supercharged V petrol engine produces 510 BHP of power at 6500 RPM and 625 Nm of torque at 6500 RPM. Both these engines take less than 7 seconds to sprint from 0 – 100 km/hr, which is impressive for a car of this size.
