So far, this vehicle has been nothing
but a joy to drive. However, with gas
prices as high as they are, that's
where the fallback lies. Handling is
smooth on highway as it is in city
driving. Rough and tumble on the hills-
Catering to the "bigger is better" whims of the SUV market, Land Rover brings out the County LWB. As one might guess, the letters stand for long wheelbase. With an eight-inch-longer stretch between the wheels, the LWB version offers limousinelike legroom for those in back. To deal with the added weight, the LWB also comes with a slightly larger V8 (4.2-liter versus the 3.9-liter mill in the standard County) good for 200 horsepower (18 more than the 3.9).
