The New Range Rover

Every New Range Rover features All-Wheel Steering for heightened high-speed stability and effortless agility at low speeds.

The New Range Rover delivers peerless refinement and combines the comfort of a luxury sedan with the all-conquering off-road capability and command driving position that have been Range Rover hallmarks for more than half a century.

The flagship of the Land Rover family represents the pinnacle of refined capability thanks to advanced hardware and software systems working in harmony.

New mixed-metal architecture uses the right material in the right places to create a safe and strong body that is up to 50 percent stiffer than before, with a static torsional stiffness of 33kNm/deg. This generational improvement provides the perfect foundation for the advanced chassis systems to reach the optimum combination of ride quality and agility for the terrain.

The hardware is designed to accommodate the New Range Rover’s 23-inch wheels a first for Land Rover and 815mm diameter wheel combinations, while delivering suspension geometry to support customary Range Rover capability. The new flow-formed alloy wheels have been carefully engineered to reduce weight and, as a result, the new larger alloys provide no increase in unsprung mass over the previous 22-inch designs, contributing to the supreme ride comfort and control provided by the suspension.

Every New Range Rover features All-Wheel Steering for heightened high-speed stability and effortless agility at low speeds. It ensures the New Range Rover is the most manoeuvrable ever, equally at home at high cruising speeds or negotiating tight urban streets.

Speed

The electrically operated rear axle steering provides up to 7.3 degrees of steering angle and, at low speeds, turns out-of-phase of the front wheels for enhanced agility. This gives the New Range Rover a turning circle of less than 11m, which is the smallest of any Land Rover and the same as small hatchback.

At speeds above 50km/h the rear axle turns in-phase with the front wheels, for exceptional stability and confidence. All-wheel steering also enhances all-terrain performance, assisting drivers when steering out of ruts, or maintaining a straight path on softer surfaces.

The New Range Rover is the first Land Rover to feature Dynamic Response Pro, an advanced 48-volt electronic active roll control system that is faster-acting and more efficient than hydraulic systems and has an industry-leading torque capacity of 1400Nm with 900Nm available within 200 milliseconds.

This advanced technology manages body roll from lateral acceleration by continually optimising the damping forces on the front and rear anti-roll bars and has been engineered by Land Rover to work in harmony with other chassis systems. In Dynamic mode, body roll is further reduced for sharper responses and enhanced agility while the anti-roll bars can de-couple in off-road scenarios to maximise wheel travel and improve ride comfort. The system’s actuators even help the wheels to follow the terrain, improving traction on undulating surfaces. -MOTORPRESS
