2017 Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic Revs Up 2017 Lineup

MAHWAH, New Jersey — The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography, an all-new model from the automaker's Special Vehicle Operations, arrives at Land Rover dealerships later this year.

It is priced at $171,990, including a $995 destination charge.

In comparison, the base 2017 Range Rover starts at $86,645, reflecting a $700 price increase over the base 2016 model. The price includes destination fees.

The new Range Rover SVAutobiography is designed to give the big SUV more appeal against such competitors as the Audi Q7, Infiniti QX80 and Lexus LX 570.

The new model is only available in the standard wheelbase specification.

Details include a revised suspension with a slightly lower ride height, unique exterior features in Graphite Atlas and 20-way adjustable front seats.

The SVAutobiography Dynamic is equipped with a 550-horsepower supercharged V8 engine linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The base 2017 Range Rover enters the new model year with additional driver-assist technologies.

They include Advanced Tow Assist, which makes it easier to reverse a trailer, and Intelligent Speed Limiter, which automatically adjusts the vehicle's speed to match the speed limit in the vehicle's Traffic Sign Recognition technology.

Other additions are a Driver Condition Monitor and blind-spot assist.

The cabin of the 2017 Range Rover adds a new 10.2-inch touchscreen display.

Edmunds says: SUV shoppers with deep pockets have another good reason to make a detour to their local Land Rover showroom.
