The one sour note we experienced was the longer-than-normal delay when switching between satellite radio stations, a complaint we seem to have with all Land Rover and Jaguar vehicles that share the same infotainment architecture.
Land Rovers have always been full of technology, and the new Range Rover does not disappoint.
This old-world English luxury contrasts with the decidedly modern thin-film dash display, which presents essential driver and vehicle information through graphics and virtual gauges.
Plus, who thought it was a good idea to install a keyless ignition when the driver has to fish out the fob to unlock the doors anyhow?
Car and Driver
The touch-screen navigation system is fairly easy to use, but it does have a steeper learning curve than others.
Features are perhaps the Range Rover's strongest suit, with the 2011 model offering hard drive navigation, a 12-inch TFT touchscreen, and an immense amount of information and interaction with the many complex differentials and algorithms controlling the Range Rover's four-wheel drive system.
A power tilt-and-slide sunroof, heated front and rear seats, LED interior lights, Bluetooth integration, and far more can be had as upgrades, while the interior trim can be customized with a wide variety of finishes and materials.
The 2011 Land Rover Range Rover features a range of useful but temperamental gadgets. We'd warn that the Range Rover's controls and displays look great but aren't as straightforward as they could be in execution.
For 2011 the standard Land Rover Range Rover is the HSE, while the Supercharged adds a host of features to the more powerful engine. Neither should be confused with the Range Rover Sport, which is actually an entirely different model. An HSE Luxury model puts an optioned-up, but not powered-up, model between the two, and an Autobiography package (available only on Supercharged models) takes the luxury into the stratosphere, with a slate of custom options.
Despite a wide range of standard and optional luxury and high-tech features, the 2011 Land Rover Range Rover could be more user-friendly.
