The Dynamic model blends power, luxury, and driving enjoyment.
Land Rover is expanding the Range Rover lineup for 2017 with a new trim level named SVAutobiography Dynamic.
The SVAutobiography Dynamic was developed with input from Land Rover's Special Vehicles Operation. It's built around a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Performance specifications haven't been published yet.
Offered only with a short wheelbase, the new trim stands out thanks to Graphite Atlas trim and 21-inch wheels. 22-inch alloys and red Brembo calipers -- a first in the Range Rover nameplate's 46-year long history -- are available at an extra cost.
Inside, the Dynamic model receives a 10.2-inch touch screen, 20-way power-adjustable front seats upholstered in diamond-quilted leather, black wood trim on the dashboard, and red shift paddles. A leather-upholstered owner's manual adds a finishing touch to the luxurious ambiance.
The SVAutobiography Dynamic ushers in Land Rover's advanced tow assist technology, and an intelligent speed limiter function that reads road signs. Finally, it gets Dynamic Response, which improves handling, and new, high-tech suspension called Active Dynamics.
The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic will go on sale later this year with a base price of $170,995. To put that figure into perspective, the base Range Rover starts at $85,650.
