Would You Spend $125,000 On A 2018 Range Rover LWB?

As Land Rover transitioned from relatively utilitarian off-roaders to luxury family haulers, models such as the long-wheelbase Range Rover were born.

The 2018 Range Rover is without a doubt one of the most stylish and capable SUVs on the planet. Its high-quality interior makes it a rival for the Bentley Bentayga, even though the latter is considerably more expensive to purchase. A more direct rival however would be the Lincoln Navigator.

In the U.S., you can buy a 2018 Range Rover LWB for upwards of $110,000, if you include the $995 destination/handling charge. The car you see here though actually isn’t the top model in the line up – that would be the SVAutobiography LWB, with its 557 HP and a price tag of just under $210,000.

Tested here by Doug DeMuro is the “entry-level”, if you can call it that, Supercharged LWB version, with 518 HP and 461 lb-ft (625 Nm) of torque coming from its 5.0-liter V8 supercharged petrol unit.

While the car doesn’t appear to look a lot different than before, the 2018MY Range Rover actually packs a few very interesting new features, both outside and in. To name a few, there are the high-tech taillights, rear-door blind spot monitor or the new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system. DeMuro also liked the all-glass design for the door frames, rearwards of the B-pillar.

As for how it performs on the road, the 2018 Range Rover LWB definitely seems to be one of the all-time most comfortable SUVs, displaying excellent ride quality, acceleration and noise insulation.

    Yes I would.

  • I LIKE THE CLEAN BACK DOOR WINDOW INTEGRATION AND THE MINIMAL BREAK LINE AROUND THE DOOR.
    I HAVE TO WONDER WHY ORDER A LONG WHEELBASE AND NOT OPTION OUT THE BACK SEAT. HOW BIG ARE TEENS THESE DAYS?

        I think his/her caps lock key is broken.

  • The proportions look wrong and weird…

  • When my Mercedes 600 Grosser can’t cross off road for some formal events, I do need this.

    • Christian

      600 Grosser? What country are you a dictator in? 🙂

      • I’m classy dictator, why you had to drive in boring late model S-Class.

  • Merc1

    I absolutely love it!!

      Looks better than offerings from Bentley, and soon to arrive Rolls.

  • Bash

    The price sound right. I would definitely get it.

  • StrangerGP

    No Range Rover is worth more than 100k. The cars are still unreliable, the build quality is still questionable and the depreciation is still enormous.

  • dhoosee

    No.

  • CBV2020

    IMO, easily the best looking SUV on the market. They just keep getting it right with proper handsomeness, grace, style, presence…
