If you desire style, speed, comfort and the ability to go charging over rough terrain with your well-heeled pals in the back, a couple of dogs in the boot and maybe a trailer hooked on behind there’s only really one choice – a Range Rover.
Conceived in the late ‘60s as a bigger and more luxurious counterpart to the hugely successful Land Rover, Jaguar’s Range Rover could fairly claim to have invented the luxury SUV market.
Despite the acronym Range Rovers have always been capable off-roaders and many of the older models can still be found putting in good work in remote corners of the world.
With the 2000s boom in SUVs a host of new models, including the Range Rover Sport and Evoque, have come to the market and found an enthusiastic buying public.
This is the full story of the marque from conception to today.
