Default 2014 Range Rover Autobiography can tow 7700 lbs

If you're not allowed to touch yourself at work I recommend waiting till you get home to watch this.

I was never in any danger of touching myself.

And the gif, really? Act like you got some sense.

But I don't have any sense.

And it's "have"

Act like you have some sense.


Better?

I'm still falling for the big one. My first impression was "too roundy".

I am in love with the new Sport though. They got that one just right.

Only if it's running. Which is never a sure thing with a RR.

That was clear already.

I am well aware of the correct grammar.

No.

Yeah same here.

The local dealer doesn't have any in so I called the guy down in Miami.

They want 20k over sticker for the only one they have lol.

And you know what I bet they get it.

What does that mean? Thanks.

lol yeah that's certainly the well-earned stereotype. I don't have any experience with modern RR's but some tell me they fixed their issues generally speaking.

I like a well defined shape, especially in an SUV.

The lines on the latest RR appear more swoopy than the last generation. I'm sure someone else would say it flows better, but I'm not a fan. The front looks great, from the rear wheels back, it looks like a station wagon.

I feel the same way about the new Bentley Flying Spur. The new lights and rear deck are too swoopy compared to the previous car.

I should have said "too swoopy" rather than "too roundy".

100% agree. It appears all modern SUV are going the way of the swoop. Mileage.

Where do all the Range Rovers go after the leases expire? I see plenty of newer ones around but almost never see a 6-10 year old Range Rover on the road.

Probably to a scrap yard... But in all seriousness my Dad had one and it was back in the dealership with 200 miles on the clock, was nothing but problems and he traded it in before it had 20k on it. I would never buy one.

for all you guys that are looking at a RR to tow (anything, and especially anything over one ton), I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'm looking to move, in addition to some land in Florida near a swamp, and, oh yeah, a boat with some "cosmetic" issues. LOL. Good luck with that! 20K over sticker - sucker of all suckers!

I'm on my third RR and am completely happy with them. The current is a 2010 and I forget what exactly its rated for but is over 7000lbs.

Wow, I watched that entire video, and the only thing I wanted to touch was the End key. I know there's apparently a customer for every car (or pseudo-truck), but when even the manufacturer is mystified about why people would buy that model, that's a clue...

And when the road tester spends a significant portion of the test discussing the product's horrific reputation for (un)reliability, I've gotta take that as yet another clue.

So... a manufacturer with a durability record that would make even the 1990s Detroit 3 blush is now offering what may be the most complex vehicle they've ever made. What are the odds of anything going wrong there? LOL, thanks for the link to an unintentionally comic video, but for that vehicle... no thanks. Not for me.

Back when I was a teen, we had a neighbor that had bought a Jag XJ-12 for his wife. This guy was LOADED. He personally owned a plant where they rebuilt large, industrial heat exchangers. His mother gave that biz to him. She still owned about 20 other industrial businesses on top of that. The neighbor lived in a 6,000 sq ft house on 10 acres, had a nice Blackfin and a couple of other boats etc.

One day I saw his wife driving a new Buick. Asked him about it. He said "I couldn't afford to keep the Jag running so I got rid of it."

English cars and food...... doesn't get much worse.
