2011 Range Rover Supercharged Review

Advanced All-Terrain Vehicle

A three-quarter front view of a 2011 Range Rover Supercharged

In short: A luxurious 4-wheel drive SUV.

The Range Rover Supercharged combines high-end luxury amenities with state-of-the-art off-road technology and a 510-horsepower supercharged V8 for a refined ride that can handle the rough stuff. Guy-friendly features like permanent 4-wheel drive and all-terrain dynamic stability control will have you itching to take the Range Rover Supercharged off the paved path, while the built-in GPS navigation system with off-road functionality ensures that you will always find your way back. Those who prefer smooth roads and safe speeds will also appreciate Range Rover's commitment to safety and on- and off-road stability, which is manifested in intelligent features like cornering brake control and air suspension with automatic load leveling.
