The Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography is among the top contenders in its segment that comes with a plush and well-laid-out cabin. Although priced ridiculously higher than the cars in its class, it gets some best-in-class features; this does justify its not so affordable pricing. Rivals in its class cost at least 40 grand less but none of them offer that royal feeling that the British Marquee has on offer. As standard, you get the P525 engine - 5L supercharged V8. This engine is bigger than most of its key rivals however it still lacks in terms of power output.

The Range Rover LWB Autobiography also has the largest-in-class cabin space. This is one true executive car built for the uber-rich and celebrities. Moreover, the supercharged V8 returns the best in class EPA figures and the super large fuel tank for its class gets you the highest driving range. These help it have an edge over the rivals and justify that high price tag it comes with. The 2022 version of this car would not see many changes except for some cosmetic tweaks here and there. With this being said, the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography takes on the rivals like the BMW X7 M50i, Mercedes-Benz GLS 580, and the Cadillac Escalade.

You don't have much choice here. You get only one trim on offer. It gets an ample number of standard features. While the additional packages available are impressive they can quickly add up to the cost of this already expensive vehicle. Among other packages, the Entertainment package felt like a decent deal to us that adds rear-seat entertainment, upgrades the sound system, and much more. 

2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography Release Date

The general design of the Range Rover will remain the same but Land Rover would try to provide some soft-looking exterior styling and might change the design of the lights too. The British automaker would likely announce the 2022 version of the vehicle near about late November this year and the vehicle might roll out in the showrooms in the mid-summers.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography SUV Engine and Performance

6.0/10

Unlike other trim levels, the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography will get the P525 V8 as standard. This 5.0L Supercharged V8 engine churns out 518 hp and 461 lb-ft respectively. The engine is connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with an all-wheel-drive system. Needless to say, this transmission is fast with the shifts and complements the engine power delivery, thus delivering blistering fast performance. 

Even though the RR Autobiography is quite heavy the engine doesn’t feel strained while accelerating. With its powerful engine, it provides a maximum towing capacity of 7,716 lbs. LWB Autobiography takes almost 5.1 seconds to cover the 0-60mph run and 13.1 seconds on the quarter-mile drag. Apart from this, the Autobiography can also be had as a plug-in hybrid with a P400e engine. The PHEV variant will be reviewed separately.

The supercharged V-8 powering the 2022 LWB Autobiography helps the car pick up pace effortlessly. However, rivals like BMW and Merc come equipped with a twin-turbo V8 engine that produces better performance figures than the RR. BMW X7 M50i is the fastest of the lot covering the 0-60mph run in 4.5 seconds and the quarter-mile drag in 14.1 seconds. These are impressive figures for an SUV of this size.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography SUV Fuel Economy

8.0/10

The 2022 Range Rover LWB Autobiography returns the same economy numbers of about, 16 MPG and 21 MPG in the city and highway driving cycles respectively. The combined fuel economy figures on the other hand stand at 18 MPG. The car gets a large, 27.3-gallon fuel tank thus giving it an impressive overall range of 440 miles in the city, 577 miles on the highway. The supercharger did boost its performance and didn't take much hit on the fuel economy.

The fuel economy offered by the RR can be termed as the best this class could offer. Coupled with its 27.5-gallon large fuel tank the overall driving range provided is also the best leaving its competitors far behind. Among the other rivals, GLS 580 gives similar EPA figures to the RR but a much shorter overall range all due to its smaller fuel tank. Escalade sports a larger naturally aspirated V8 and it is the least efficient of the lot.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography SUV Interior

8.0/10

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography will offer two-row seating for a total of 5 passengers comfortably. The interior offered will be impressed with the high-end quality of padded leather, soft-touch plastic, real wood, and aluminum used. The spacious front seats offered would be supportive and comfortable just like the current version. On the current RR LWB Autobiography, the second row is pretty comfortable with more than enough legroom to stretch your legs. In short, the interior will be too royal and plush.

As standard, the cabin might come with Windsor leather-trimmed seats along with a heating function. You will also get 24-way power-adjustable massaging front seats and second-row captain chairs as standard. Apart from that, it will have a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and ventilated front and rear seats with massage functions, and the Range Rover left scope for improvement in its standard list. It can be completed by opting for a luxurious four-seat layout that swaps the rear middle seat with a center console and folding tray tables. In the trunk, the SUV gets 34.5 cubic feet of cargo capacity.

In terms of seating, Range Rover might not be the best. But when it comes to interior space, it does offer an extremely roomy cabin. Needless to say, the rear row legroom of 46.8-inches is the segment best. The RR LWB Autobiography gets a longer wheelbase thus more spacious legroom at the rear. All other cars in the competition offer seating for 7 but that does eat into the cargo space. RR has the most cargo space available at 34.5 cu ft but even with the third-row seating in place, Cadillac Escalade is the most spacious of the lot offering 25.5 cu-ft. Standout interior features in the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography:

  • 24-way power-adjustable front seats
  • Quad-zone climate control
  • Windsor leather trimmed-seats
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Ambient Interior Lighting
  • Wood and Leather Steering Wheel
  • Illuminated Aluminum Treadplates with “Autobiography” Lettering
  • Executive Class Power Recline Heated and Cooled Rear Seats
  • Captain's chairs (rear seats)

How Intuitive is the infotainment system?

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography gets a Touch Pro Duo system with two 10-inch touchscreen displays. The upper display gets the controls for audio and navigation along with other features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto while the lower display has controls for adjusting the AC, seating position, and drive mode settings. Along with these two displays, the vehicle also gets a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 29-speaker Meridian Surround Sound system with 3D technology as standard.

The Touch Pro Duo system looks pretty modern but not very intuitive. It could be a little difficult for people to use it for the first time and along with it is a laggy response. The buyers can also opt for a rear-seat entertainment system featuring two 10-inch touch screens if they want to. Standout infotainment features in the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography are:

  • Touch Pro Duo system
  • 10-inch touchscreen display
  • 12.3-inch instrument cluster
  • 29-speaker Meridian Surround Sound system
  • Navigation Pro
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Bluetooth

2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography SUV Exterior

9.0/10

The Range Rover LWB Autobiography was last redesigned in 2013 and didn’t see any major changes on the exterior till now. Yet it boasts an appealing and relevant design altogether. Although the overall design language will remain the same for the 2022 MY, it is expected to get few minor changes. In the front, it sports a more of a futuristic design with that iconic chrome wrapped grille and automatic LED headlights with LED DRLs giving it an aggressive character and a bold road presence all along. The black roof pillars and big glass it is wrapped on from all the sides give a floating roof appearance. 

From the side, the available 22-inch diamond finished alloy wheels give it an impressive look and complement the straight beltline starting from the upper end of the headlight and merging into the rear tail lights while passing through the door handles on the sides. The silver accents on the doors and subtle fender flares look amazing, giving it an impressive and appealing look. On the rear fascia, it gets squared-out LED taillights along with a shark fin antenna.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS 580

The Mercedes-Benz GLS 580 is among the top picks that offer a luxurious cabin experience in the segment. Priced much lower than the Range Rover LWB Autobiography, it gets a Twin-Turbo V8 with impressive power output. The fuel economy is similar to the Range Rover but the range covered is much lower owing to its smaller fuel tank. In terms of interior space, it is somewhat similar to the Range Rover and gets a smaller cargo area. The ride quality and the in-cabin experience offered by the Range Rover help it have an edge over the Merc.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography vs 2021 Cadillac Escalade

The Cadillac Escalade was fully redesigned for the 2021 MY and thus gets a fresh exterior along with the excellent comfort and capable performance the Cadillac promises. Compared to the 2022 Range Rover LWB Autobiography it is priced much on the lower side and gets a strong V8; However, it isn’t as powerful as the LR P525 engine. While the car is not as fast as the Range Rover, it does boast extremely affordable pricing.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography VS 2021 BMW X7 M50i

The BMW X7 M50i is powered by a Twin-Turbo V8 and provides better performance as compared to the Range Rover LWB Autobiography. When fuel efficiency is concerned it is a gas guzzler. It also gets a comparably smaller fuel tank size and sub-par EPA figures take a toll on its overall range. On the other hand, BMW gets a much roomy cabin in comparison and also offers an extra row of seating when compared to the Range Rover. The driving dynamics and driving experience offered by the BMW X7 M50i are also significantly better.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography SUV Final Verdict

The new Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography is an impressive SUV with best in class comfort and performance one can offer. This SUV is priced on the extreme as compared to its rivals. It does justify its price with the features in accordance and maintains its stance as one of the best top-end plush SUVs in the segment. The cabin is pretty impressive with top-notch material used along with an extremely spacious interior. 

Although it hasn’t been tested by authorities we do expect an excellent safety rating looking at its built quality and the list of standard and optional features it gets. If someone is looking for a luxurious experience with excellent comfort and impressive performance for day-to-day use then the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover LWB Autobiography is going to be an excellent vehicle.
