Range Rover History
Rovers are luxury SUVs from Land Rover, a marque of British manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover. Introduced in 1970, the Range became Land Rover’s flagship model throughout its 50-plus-year history. There are now four generations of the Range, plus an expanded line of three other models and the HSE (High Standard Equipment). The HSE, such as the HSE Lux, comes with an upgraded trim level, finer interiors, and extra accents.
Land Rover produced first gen Ranges from 1970 to 1996, making these vehicles far more utilitarian than the luxury models of today. They were fairly basic, could be easily washed down inside, and did not come with many standard features like power steering, leather seats, cruise control, carpeted floors, or even air conditioning.
The first gen Rovers came in short wheelbase (SWB) and long wheelbase (LWB) options. This model, which is now known as the Classic, inspired the second generation of these classic cars.
Introduced 25 years after the first gen, second gen models experienced production from 1994 to 2002. This 5-door SUV was an upgraded version of the Classic. In fact, many considered it a step above the popular Land Rover Discovery or “Disco,” and Land Rover Discovery Sport.
The third generation was even more up-market than the second gen. In production from 2002 to 2012, the third gen model was developed under BMW’s ownership, which is why it shares some components with the BMW 7 Series.
Also known as the L322, this model came in three variants: the first came with the BMW transmission while the other two had supercharged versions of a Jaguar engine. The supercharged variant also had some cleaner, upgraded features that made it more attractive to potential buyers.
Land Rover upgraded the Range even further in 2012 with the start of the fourth generation, which introduced hybrids and plug-in hybrids to the lineup.
Jaguar announced in 2021 that fifth gen models would be coming. Mild hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and all-electric models are expected to be part of the fifth gen’s lineup.
Land Rover has also developed an expanded line of three vehicles: the Range Rover Velar, Sport, and Evoque. Since 2020, these vehicles come equipped with luxurious features like premium audio systems with satellite radio and other high-end features.
Announced in 2007, the Velar is a mid-size crossover with the same platform as the Jaguar F-Pace S.
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport, released in 2004 as a mid-size luxury SUV, is based on the Land Rover Discovery body style.
The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a 3-door or 5-door hatchback available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel (AWD). It has been named the truck, car, and SUV of the year by numerous outlets.
