Land Rover's flagship Range Rover receives a number of updates for the 2010 model year that give it a new look on the outside, more power under the hood and features designed to improve ride comfort and offroad prowess. Pricing information hasn't been released.
Grille restyling and new headlights give the Range Rover a mildly different front-end appearance. The new headlights have integrated illumination rings around the main lighting elements; they look a little like the circular running lights BMW uses. The taillights take on a slightly different appearance, but they still have a clear-lens design like the ones on the current Range Rover.
The new base engine is a 375-hp, 5.0-liter V-8 that features direct injection. The Supercharged trim level continues, and its 5.0-liter V-8 generates a stupendous 510 hp. The new supercharged engine lowers this SUV's zero-to-60-mph time by more than a second, to 5.9 seconds.
