Range Rover 2018 pricing and spec confirmed

Land Rover has shown facelifted versions of its Range Rover for 2018 during the Los Angeles motor show that gets some upmarket equipment from its new Velar sibling and a substantial price increase across the board.

The British brand will offer the restyled, upgraded 2018 models in five variants – Vogue, Vogue SE, Autobiography, SVAutobiography and SVAutobiography Dynamic – all underpinned by an all-wheel drivetrain and an automatic transmission.

The 2018 Range Rover, which goes on sale progressively from April next year, will open with the Vogue 190kW TDV6 diesel at $190,000 before on-road costs, up $6700 on its predecessor.

Vogue specification levels are also available with a 250kW SDV8 diesel engine for $211,000 and a 280kW supercharged V6 for $200,200, both rising $6989.

The company will also add a plug-in hybrid model next year, with the $210,000 Vogue Si4 PHEV comprising a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine and an 85kW electric motor for fuel use as low as 2.8 litres per 100km.

The hybrid will also sport an electric-only driving range of 51km and will accelerate from 0-100km/h in only 6.8 seconds.

SDV8 engines are the sole powertrains available on Vogue SE grades, with pricing creeping up $3389 to $229,600.

Moving up to the Autobiography, SDV8 engines are available in short- and long-wheelbase form for $256,000 (+$11,889) and $266,000 (+$10,189) respectively.

Autobiography-level Range Rovers can also be had with a 386kW supercharged V8 petrol engine costing $268,900 (+$11,889) in short-wheelbase form and $279,100 (+$10,189) with extended axles.

SVAutobiography variants are available exclusively with a long-wheelbase, with the SDV8 priced at $372,400 and the force-fed V8 costing $398,900 – a substantial lift in price of $24,789 and $25,289 respectively.

The supercharged petrol V8 is the sole engine powering the SVAutobiography Dynamic, which receives the biggest increase in price of $25,689 to $341,400.

Although exact Australian specification is yet to be revealed, the 2018 Range Rover line-up will include the brand’s new 10.0-inch 'Touch Pro Duo' multimedia system lifted from the Velar, new design armchairs with a comfort bias and 24-way adjustment, heated steering wheel, 12-inch TFT driver’s display, 17 charging points and a WiFi hotspot that can cater for up to eight devices.
