In terms of performance, shoppers can select from a turbocharged 4-cylinder, an innovative MHEV 6-cylinder, and even a pulse-pounding supercharged V8. Regardless of the terrain or conditions, its available Configurable Terrain Response® system allows your Defender to adapt to the current demands.

Range Rover

Most Luxurious Land Rover for Off-Roading – Range Rover

An icon both on and off the road, no other luxury SUV is synonymous with refinement and luxury quite like the legendary Range Rover. Impeccable comfort amenities including climate-controlled massaging front seats, sumptuous Windsor leather upholstery, and a stunning sliding panoramic glass roof allow you to experience first-class luxury. However, it’s important not to overlook the off-road engineering and performance capabilities of the Range Rover. Its standard intelligent All-Wheel Drive (iAWD) system combined with its Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) system work in harmony when the pavement turns to gravel. You’ll have your choice of an economical MHEV 6-cylinder, turbocharged 6-cylinder, and a muscular V8 engine under the hood. There’s even a sophisticated plug-in hybrid and full-electric variant, both of which push the limits of efficiency and smooth power delivery. If you’re looking for premium features combined with off-road capabilities, the Range Rover remains in a class of its own.
