New renditions of Range Rover may well be the most elegant SUVs in the world, and with optional supercharging they rank among the quickest and most powerful. Marked by a high stance and boxy profile with roof seemingly floating above a wrap of tall windows, Range Rover contains mechanical hardware for serious off-pavement roaming and the five-place passenger compartment laced with every conceivable accessory for luxurious comfort.
Range Rover HSE stocks an aluminum 4.4-liter V8 with 305 hp through an electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission and a stick with H-gate shift pattern for the CommandShift manual mode, which operates even in lowest range of 4WD. Range Rover Supercharged scores a 4.2-liter V8 with the supercharger output up to 400 hp.
A restyled face distinguishes the 2006 issues, with the supercharged version wearing mesh in the grille and flank power vents, plus 20-inch alloy wheels.
A contemporary suite of three powerful sport-utility vehicles comprise the 2006 wagon fleet for Britain's Land Rover. Fancy flagship Range Rover tops the line with a new supercharged edition that's the most powerful Land Rover ever. A new sport tourer SUV called Range Rover Sport, geared for long-distance driving, brings supercharged and naturally-aspirated engine choices, while the LR3, marking a third generation for the mid-size Discovery wagon, contains sophisticated mechanical hardware for heavy-duty four-wheel-drive (4WD) performance.
