"The Range Rover’s off-road capabilities are like the 200-mph top speed of an exotic sports car: You may never actually use it, but it’s why you own it." - Kelley Blue Book

The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover has a splendid range of 3 trims. The price range extends from $85,650 for the Base trim to a massive $103,895 for the Supercharged Trim.

The Base, which is the low-end trim of the 2017 Range Rover offers features such as a grey tow eye cover, heated windshield, heated door mirrors with memory, and auto-dimming exterior mirrors. Ranking a step ahead from the Base trim is the HSE trim and it comes with a sliding panoramic roof as an additional feature. Moreover, both the Base and HSE trim also comes in turbodiesel engine variant.

The Supercharged Range Rover trim is different from the rest in the way that it employs a more powerful 5.0L V8 engine. Moreover, apart from the features of the Base and HSE trims, the Supercharged trim comes with some extra embedded features like laminated front and rear side glass.

We Recommend

From our perspective, if one needs a Range Rover with moderate engine power then the low-end Base trim is recommended over the HSE trim due to the price difference of $7000. On the other hand, for satisfying the appetite for speed and aggressive throttle response, the Supercharged with the more capable V8 engine is the best option.
